As the winners' interviews and whatnot get underway, David Warga will be no stranger to this sort of thing - he already has a bracelet, after winning the Casino Employees' Event in 2002.
Warga, who is a professional poker player when he's not developing real estate, has now defeated 643 players to win his first bracelet in an open event. This final table was one of the most star-studded and - despite the reputation of stud eight - fast-paced we've seen. We went from 23 players to just one in around 11 hours, and there was never a dull moment.
Many congratulations to Warga and all the finalists. From the stud eight, it's over and out.
Maxwell Troy got his chips in the middle several times, but each time he ended up chopping the pot with David Warga. Troy also folded a few, and so was down to just 95,000 when he got his last in again.

Although it looked for a while as though king high would win, in the end Troy's rivered pair of nines was good enough to scoop the pot.
