Mueller and Cernuto Headline Weekend Action at WSOP
It was another big weekend for Full Tilt Poker pros at the World Series of Poker. Leading the charge was Greg Mueller as he took second place in Event #11, a $5K No-Limit Hold ’em shootout, cashing for just under $300K. Team Full Tilt’s John Juanda finished in seventh place, just narrowly missing out on the final table.
John Cernuto also had a big weekend, finishing third in Event #10, an Omaha/7-Card Stud Hi/Lo mixed event. “Miami” John took home more than $85K for his performance. Full Tilt Poker pros also had a strong showing at Event #8, the $10K World Championship Mixed Event, with both Eli Elezra and Jeff Madsen making the final table. Madsen finished seventh for more than $50K, and Elezra took third and over $100K in winnings. Gus Hansen and David Oppenheim both just missed the final table cut, coming in 10th and 9th respectively.
Last but certainly not least, Markus Golser took sixth place in Event #12, a $1,500 Limit Hold ’em tournament, for more than $50K. Erick Lindgren, fresh off winning his first bracelet, came in 10th place and just missed out on making his second final table of the Series.
