Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 23, 2005
The professionals representing http://www.fulltiltpoker.com continue to dominate the 2005 World Series of Poker, with five players reaching the final tables of the past three events, and two players Â Phil Gordon and Jennifer Harman Â walking away with top-three finishes.
In the $1,500 No-Limit Hold 'em Shootout, Phil Gordon showed why he does the expert commentary on Celebrity Poker Showdown by securing a third-place finish in the 780 person event. Gordon's performance marked his second final table appearance in this year's WSOP, and earned him $75,350 in addition to the more than $66,000 he won for placing eighth in the $1,000 No-Limit Hold 'em tournament. Full Tilt Poker representative Erick Lindgren also made the final table in this event, collecting more than $20,000 for his ninth-place finish.
Jennifer Harman nearly added a third WSOP bracelet to her collection, finishing third in the $2,000 7-Card Stud Hi/Lo 8 or Better tournament, winning nearly $54,000. Harman, who is considered one of the world's best cash-game players, is the only woman who holds two WSOP bracelets in ÂopenÂ events.
Full Tilt Poker representatives Toto Leonidas and Chris ÂJesusÂ Ferguson also made their second final table appearances at this year's WSOP, placing fourth and seventh in the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha tournament. Earlier, Leonidas placed second in the $2,000 Limit Hold 'em tournament, while Ferguson narrowly missed adding a sixth WSOP title to his credit with a seventh-place showing in the $2,000 Pot-Limit Omaha event.
