World-Series-of-Poker-July-2010-dealer-tables-300x200It was big week for some very big names in the poker world, as two very well-known poker pros captured major tournament wins, with Matt Giannetti winning his second WPT title and Mike Mizrachi triumphing at the WSOPC South Africa tournament. At the same time a local player took home one of the most coveted EPT titles, the EPT Deauville, and some online pros also found themselves in the winner’s circle at PokerStars.
