Tournament Rake: Big Game Reg Wins Doyle Brunson Classic

Friel_1Has anyone else noticed that Asians are good at poker? 

Big game regular Minh Ly (not pictured at right) won the WPT Doyle Brunson North American Poker Championship.  This event is not to be confused with Doyle's South American Championship*.

Seated at the final table were some of the game's best, including "Action" Dan Harrington, Gavin Smith, Jan Sorensen, and Tony Grand.  Also seated with them was the requisite guy we've never heard of, Don Zewin.

Ly defeated Action Dan heads-up for the title and banked $1,060,000--or what he could make with like one monster hand in the Big Game.  The WPT win caps off what has been a great tournament year for Ly, which includes a 19th place finish in this year's WSOP Main Event.

After winning the event, Ly stood close to WPT "hostess" Courtney Friel.  Since Friel is infinitely more attractive than Ly, we will use her picture for this story instead of his. 

* No such tournament actually exists.
