That’s why it only made sense to add the storied game to the new WSOP Championship Event Series. Undoubtedly, this will be one of the most-talked-about events this year.

Last year, Phil Ivey looked the favorite to win the tournament and add another Seven-Card Stud bracelet to his collection.

However, he ran into a hot Chris Reslock and eventually lost…

Dr. Pauly at the 2008 WSOP Sick Final Tables

‘It’s a really sick final table,’ was how Shane ‘Shaniac’ Schleger described it. The final table of Event #4 $5,000 Mixed Hold’em at the 2008 World Series of Poker was definitely one of the strongest and impressive final tables.
