The winner of the $1,500 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha championship was Scott Clements, from Mt. Vernon, WA. He is a 25-year-old poker pro who has enjoyed great tournament success in recent years. Although he dropped out of college, Clements has won over a million dollars playing poker - including more than $600,000 during the last two years at the WSOP. This was Clements' second WSOP bracelet win in two years. He won the $3,000 buy-in Omaha High-Low championship last year. He also won a WSOP Circuit event at Harvey's Lake Tahoe in 2006. This was the fourth time Clements has cashed at this year's WSOP. He is currently the co-leader in that category. Clements recently got married. Before turning pro, he worked as a mortgage broker. Will Durkee won over half-a-million dollars and his first WSOP gold bracelet in last week's No-Limit Hold'em event. He came in fourth at this final table. Jason Newburger proved to be a quick study in the game of Pot-Limit Omaha. His first time ever to play the game, he made it to the final table at last year's WSOP. This tournament marked his second time to play the game. Once again, he made it all the way to the final table – finishing fifth. Irishman Andy Black was fifth in the $10,000 buy-in main event in 2005. This marked the first time Black returned to a WSOP final table since, although he did make it to the finale of the 2006 Tournament of Champions. He took 7th place in this tournament. Hilbert Shirey is a name from the past. He won his first of three WSOP gold bracelets back in 1987. An 11th place finish in this tournament was his 20th lifetime cash at the WSOP. Poker legend Johnny Chan finished 20th.
