The final table of Event #37, $10,000 World Championship Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo 8-or-better, seemed like it was never going to end, but finally it has. Just over three and a half hours after entering heads-up play, Jeff "Iceman" Lisandro has emerged victorious over Farzad Rouhani. When play got down to the final two contestants, Lisandro was behind, but fought back to regain the chip lead through winning numerous small pots. From there, he hammered on Rouhani over and over to grind him down to almost nothing. After a few all-ins and some chopped pots, it seemed only a matter of time before Lisandro would close the deal. Lisandro claims his second gold bracelet of this year's World Series of Poker and further proves that he is one of the best seven-card stud players in the game. Along with his bracelet comes a nice hefty payday of over $430,000. Lisandro has earned over half a million dollars at this year's WSOP already. Congratulations to Jeff Lisandro on winning Event #37 and claiming his second gold WSOP bracelet this year!
