WPT Reno 2006 in the books

Well the 2006 World Poker Challenge in Reno is in the books! The No Limit Texas Holdem Poker Main Event just concluded. The final table looked like this:

Mike Simon $1,195,000 1 4
Barry Greenstein $1,085,000 1 1
Tom Schneider $1,020,000 1 3
Jonas Norrman $905,000 1 6
Jason Stern $880,000 1 5
Greg Mueller $835,000 1 2

While Greenstein was second in chips entering the final table, and everyone's early favorite, it was not to be. Four hands in, he was crippled by Simon when they both caught a set of 8's with Simon's A kicker winning the hand!

Simon went on to take down the title, earning the $1,052, 890 first place prize and the $25,000 entry into the World Poker Tour Championship at the Bellagio next month!
