Bicycle wraps up WPT tournament

4 September 2007

BELL GARDENS, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) - The Bicycle Casino ended its month-long Legends of Poker series with the highly-anticipated World Poker Tour $10,000 no-limit hold'em tournament that wrapped after 1:00am on Friday, August 31st. Dan Harrington, world renowned poker champion and author, took the coveted title of 2007 WPT Legend of Poker, along with over $1.6 million!

The Legends main event began on Saturday, August 25th with enough players to justify two flights of Day 1 play, and when the players were counted, the final number was 485 to set a new record for entrants. In the sixth consecutive year of the tournament, there was also a record-setting prize pool of $4,607,500.

The tournament was packed with some of the biggest names in poker who came to the Bike for its "legendary" annual event, names like Doyle Brunson, Barry Greenstein, Scotty Nguyen, Jamie Gold, and Jerry Yang. In the end, the final table demonstrated what the World Poker Tour and the Bicycle Casino bring to poker - the opportunity for anyone with poker abilities to win hundreds of thousands of dollars and play with the pros. The final six players consisted of WSOP Player of the Year Tom Schneider, seasoned pros "Action" Dan Harrington and David "Dragon" Pham, Mike McClain, Thu Nguyen, and recent college graduate Jack Liu.

In the end, it was a battle of the pros when the heads-up match between Harrington and Pham lasted for nearly three hours. Finally, Dan Harrington emerged as the victor to claim the $1,600,365 first prize, a seat into the WPT $25,000 World Championship, a seat into the 2008 Legends of Poker $10,000 main event, and the priceless World Poker Tour title and undisputed ranking as a Legend of Poker. David Pham took second place with $800,185 and enough points to catapult him to the top of the Card Player Player of the Year standings.

The 2007 Legends of Poker was filmed by the World Poker Tour with an exuberant audience cheering on their favorite poker players and will be aired on GSN in early 2008.

The Bicycle Casino is the premiere place for poker in the Los Angeles area and is open for business 24-hours a day, every day of the year. There are numerous table games available at various limits, including blackjack, pai gow, and three-card poker, in addition to the wide range of poker games spread to accommodate all of the Bike's players.
