The Venetian Hotel-Resort-Casino in Las Vegas played host to the first ever North American Poker Tour Main Event. 872 players came to the Venetian to test their skill and claim a piece of the massive $4 million dollar prize pool.
In the end, 8 players survived with a chance to win the nearly $830,000 top prize. This final table was an eclectic cast of characters including a former marine, a software engineer, a Harvard graduate, online phenoms Sam Stein and Tom Marchese, and 3-time WSOP bracelet winner Miami John Cernuto.
Everyone had their sights set on the title, the trophy, and all of the prize money, but only one would win. The inaugural NAPT Venetian Main Event Champion will be crowned in this fourth hour of the NAPT presented by PokerStars.net!
