Luis Velador seized a dominant chip lead on Day 2 and almost never had to look back. He had all eight of his opponents on the ropes for most of today, until Anthony Signore mounted an impressive comeback, pulling nearly even in chips with Velador on Hand # 107, when his {A-Diamonds} {9-Hearts} bested Velador's {7-Diamonds} {7-Hearts} with a lucky ace on the turn.

Velador is a familiar face at Los Angeles area casinos, where he has a long list of cashes and five tournament victories to his credit in a variety of poker disciplines including limit hold'em, Omaha 8 or better, Stud 8 or better and, of course, no-limit hold'em.

The soft-spoken Velador was humble in his win, and has "big plans" to celebrate tonight with all of his friends who railed him here today.

Congratulations to Luis Velador on his first WSOP bracelet!
