It was down to the wire between John Juanda and Stanislav Alekhin at this year's World Series of Poker Europe. Daniel Negreanu, probably one of the most recognizable faces in poker today, busted out in the number 5 position. Ivan Demidov, who is also among the finalists at next month's World Series of Poker held in Vegas, was knocked out in 3rd place.

Juanda had almost twice as many chips as Alekhin.

John Juanda has $7,100,000 in total career total winnings to date and is already a multiple WSOP bracelet winner. He's the Indonesian born player who now resides in Marina del Rey, California.

He was the 2002 tournament Champion of the Year, winning three World Series of Poker titles, and a World Poker Open Championship title. In November 2004 he won the inaugural Professional Poker Tour event at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut.

In November 2005 he earned nearly $500,000 in Monte Carlo, Monaco after winning the Monte Carlo Millions Consolation tournament, finishing sixth in the Monte Carlo Millions Main Event, and finishing second at "The FullTiltPoker.Net Invitational Live from Monte Carlo."

Although Juanda has made 6 World Poker Tour final tables, he has never captured a title.

Stanislav Alekhin, who is 23, is a relative unknown from Russia who now joins a handful of elite players from that country. He is not ranked and has no career winnings data.

The play was going into sunrise Friday morning.
