Seven Card Stud (Event 16)
Congratulations to Jeff Lisandro, Winner of Event 16 ($124,959)!

Three days of seven-card stud play have produced a champion in Event 16. His name is Jeff Lisandro, and he's not a stranger to the champion's podium. This is Lisandro's second WSOP bracelet, the first coming two years ago in the same game. It was the smoothest of sailing for Lisandro at today's final table. He squeezed extra bets when he was ahead and saved them when he was behind, the hallmark of an excellent fixed-limit player. He also ran incredibly well, frustrating several of his opponents into almost giving up at his apparent invincibility. When you have opponents feeling like they can't beat you, you're in a good spot. For besting a field of 359 players, Lisandro will pocket $124,959 in prize money in addition to the aforementioned gold bracelet. Congratulations Jeff! That concludes our coverage of this event, but there's still many more weeks of WSOP action here at the Rio Convention Center.
