The winner of the $1,500 buy-in Seven-Card Stud championship was Michael Keiner. He is a professional poker player from Frankfurt, Germany. He is 48-years-old. Keiner was a medical doctor, before turning poker pro. He specialized in cosmetic surgery. Keiner won seven major poker tournaments in Europe before this feat - his first poker tournament win in the U.S. With this victory, Keiner now has five WSOP in-the-money finishes dating back to 2000. First place paid $146,987. Keiner is the third gold bracelet winner from Germany in WSOP history. The other two players are Matthias Rohnacher (1997) and Eddy Scharf (2001, 2003). In fact, Keiner was motivated to play more events at this year's WSOP by his friend and rival, Eddy Scharf - the two time WSOP event champ. Occasionally, when Keiner spoke to his fellow countryman inside the poker room, Scharf was known to reply in German - 'Speak up Michael - I can't hear you because my two gold bracelets are rattling in my ears and making it difficult to hear you.' Steamed by this, Keiner was determined to play no less than 19 events this year - concentrating in the non-hold'em events with smaller fields. This gave him (numerically) a better chance to win his own gold bracelet. Mission accomplished.
