Every year the event at Caesars in Las Vegas draws the toughest field of any WSOP Circuit event. As the only stop in Sin City the biggest names in poker, as well as some young rising stars, come out to play the $5,000 buy-in event.

This year was no different and the final table of players reflected just how tough of a field this can be. Rather than the home game kings that regularly populate WSOP Circuit events in Indiana and Iowa the final table Wednesday included Michael ‘The Grinder’ Mizrachi, Justin Bonomo, Men ‘the Master’ Nguyen, BLUFF Magazine Player of the Year contender Matt Brady.

While the final table may have featured those big names it came down to a marathan heads-up battle between Bonomo and Grinder. The two young superstars played mano e mano for nearly four hours with the chip lead going back and forth before Bonomo finally captured the title and the WSOP Circuit championship ring. First place paid $237,692.

For Bonomo this is his first major victory and marks an improvement over his fifth place finish in the same event last year. Mizrachi walked away with $143,512 for his runner-up finish while Nguyen finished third for $91,937.

The next WSOP Circuit event begins May 8th in New Orleans.
