2007 World Series: The light of the 'Stars

In the past few days, there have been a ton of great stories coming out of the World Series. More often than even I have been able to cover, there is usually a subtitle that involves PokerStars.

Just the other day, PokerStars Supernova Shankar825 (known in public as Shankar Pillai) won one of the biggest prizes so far this year in a no-limit hold'em event. He picked up more than half a million bucks for his win.

As I type, another Supernova, Keith Block, is down to the final four players in the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em event. Already guaranteed $128,968, Block is on a complete freeroll after using his Frequent Player Points to buy into this event. Update: Keith ended up going out in the final four, but still managed to earn more than $125,000 on a complete freeroll. Congrats, Keith.

Today, Team PokerStars' own Daniel Negreanu took fifth place in the $2,000 Seven Card stud event. For more on that, check out the final table reports below:

While Daniel couldn't pull the bracelet in that event, cash game superstar Jeff Lisandro picked up his first World Series bracelet. And based on where this post has been, you can guess how the final picture will look.
