Bellagio World Poker Tour World Championship Final Table (2010)

Bellagio World Poker Tour World Championship final table (2010) has two familiar names leading, Galen Hall and Scott Seiver.

The Bellagio World Poker Tour World Championship final table for 2010 has been set after some explosive drama over the past week whereby an alleged cheater was permitted to play in the event.  A number of players expressed their distain with World Poker Tour organizers permitting German poker player Ali Tekintamgac to participate in the acclaimed tournament after he was booted from the Partouche Poker Tour Main Event for allegedly conspiring with another individual to gain access to opponents holecards.  

San Francisco’s Galen Hall owned the most number of chips coming into the final table at 5,095 million, just a smidge more than Las Vegas’ own Scott Seiver at 5,075.

Hall’s big claim to fame was winning $2.3 million at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) Season 8/EPT Season 7/NAPT season 2 EPT Main Event – No Limit Hold’em. 

Seiver has amassed over $2 million in live poker tournaments to date including a 1st place finish at the 2008 World Series of Poker Even #21 – WSOP No Limit Hold’em, where he took home $755,856.  The Ohio native has had 3 first place finishes. 

Tony Gargano, in 3rd place coming into the final table, has won $351,175 in live tournaments to date.
