    Exciting finish to major Las Vegas tournament

    Brit poker pro David "Devilfish" Ulliot, who owns the online poker room Devilfish Poker.com was in the money bigtime this week with a $266 000 prize win in the Five Diamond World Poker Classic held in Las Vegas.

    The $2 000 No-Limit Hold'em event rewarded the English player with the big cheque and a World Poker Classic gold bracelet, together with a seat at the $25 000 World Poker Tour finals in April next year.

    Going into the final table at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino, Ulliot held the highest chip count at 192 000 chips. Facing him were some formidable competitors, including pros Brad "Yukon" Booth and Noah Boeken but the final heads-up match was with John Strzemp.

    Following a lengthy period of heads-up play, both players moved all-in with aces, Ulliot with the stronger kicker. Strzemp had no luck on the turn and the river, handing the title, prize money, bracelet and WPT sponsorship to Ulliot.

    The day wasn't a total loss for Strzemp, who earned $149 000 for his second place.

    Good to hear of him taking one down over here, I think it had been awhile.

    Brad "Yukon" Booth, is a tough NL cash game player from Canada.
    John Strzemp, was runner up in Stuey's last title, I believe. At that time he was an exec. with the Mirage Corp.. Very tough competition for the 'Fish to overcome.
