While the €3,300 buy-in WPT Slovenia tournament was wondering where all of the poker players were, the Bellagio staff knew precisely where they were, and pulled off a major coup by scooping up most of the big name players who had busted out of the Main Event at the WSOP across town by running its own $10k tournament halfway through the WSOP Main Event.

A total of 224 players entered the Bellagio Cup VII, creating an impressive prize pool of over $2.2 million, with a first-place prize of $669,992. And with an extremely tough field made up of the top poker players in the world who were still in Las Vegas after busting from the WSOP Main Event, it came as little surprise that the final table was chock-full of top poker talent.

Here is a look at the final table payouts from the tournament:

1. Elio Fox — $669,692

2. Hafiz Khan — $379,460

3. William Thorson — $288,350

4. Brandon Meyers — $150,311

5. Ted Forrest — $112,733

6. Bryn Kenney — $91,260

7. Daniel Colman — $69,787

8. James Hess — $48,314

Some other big names who cashed in the Bellagio Cup VII included: Isaac Haxton (26th place), David Benyamine (24th place), Justin Young (21st place), Michael McDonald (20th place), Lee Markholt (19th place), Vitaly Lunkin (18th place), Nenad Medic (17th place), Thomas Marchese (15th place), Nick Schulman (13th place), David Williams (11th place), and Brandon Cantu (ninth place).
