Key Players 

Thor Hansen had $90,000 in chips and Brian Nadell had $78,000 when they made a deal for most of the money. What motivated these two poker professionals was the bracelet. Thor had one already. Brian was desperate for his first.

Nadell fought all the way to a 2-1 chip lead at one point. When the $3k/$6k level started, though, there were only 14 big bets on the table. It was over quickly. "Hansen surprised me. He'd been taking two cards on the button all day. I thought he'd take two as he usually did so I that my Jack was a favorite." In a multi-raised pot that would decide the victor, Nadell rapped pat with his Jack. To Brian's chagrin, Thor Hansen only took one card and turned over an 8.

Recent Super Satellite winners were Barney Boatman and Surinder Sunar (his 2nd)
