WPT Season #6: Bay 101 Shooting Star $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em

WPT, 2008-03-16, by Ozone

Brandon Cantu performed a rare feat at the Bay 101 Shooting Star in Northern California this week. He finished each day of the tournament as the chip leader and ultimately won the $1,000,000 first place prize. Cantu moved through the 376 player field with apparent ease to win his second major title. In 2006, he won a $1,500 no-limit hold'em bracelet at the WSOP in a field of 2,776.

Steve Sung moved his career winnings over $1,000,000 with a second place finish good for $585,000. Jennifer Harman-Traniello finished 3rd for $330,000. John Phan finished 6th ($135,000). J.C. Tran and Lee Watkinson both bubbled the televised final table by finishing 7th and 9th, respectively.

Reno, Nevada will hold the next WPT event at the end of this month.
