Jerry Yang and Scotty Nguyen Among 2007 World Series of Poker Top Winners
From the Casino City Times:
While Jerry Yang won the most money at the 2007 World Series of Poker ($8.25 million for winning the Main Event), Scotty Nguyen was the best overall player in the 55 tournaments that made up the Series, according to the Casino City WSOP Player of the Year leader board.
Nguyen, who entered the Main Event ranked third on our leader board, leapfrogged over Michael Binger and Thor Hansen with his 11th-place finish to claim the title with 373.1 points.
Alexander Kravchenko, who was fourth in the Main Event, moved up from 15th to second, but wouldn't have been able to reach Nguyen, even with a win in the Main Event.
Yes, this was a fine year for the WSOP. It didnt feel as if there was as much of the empty hype this year, and we felt the matches were generally of high quality entertainment.
Congrats to all the winners, and we hope to see you again next year!
