Tim West, a player known for his online success, has taken down the 2011 Wynn Classic Championship that was held in Las Vegas last week.

The final table at the  2011 Wynn Classic kept up the tradition of seating a number of big-name stars and, even though it’s not a televised event, competed with recent climaxes in the international circuits such as the World Poker Tour and European Poker Tour.

212 participants paid the $5,000 buy-for a Main Event place and generated a prize pool of $1,028,200.. The final table included a majority showing  of online poker players such as Eric Froehlich, Carter King, Matt Waxman, Annette Obrestad, and Tim West.

West and Obrestad edged out the rest of the field and the other finalists to set up a complex heads-up that followed a long and windy path. The pair took the tournament into a home straight that looked like it might hit the morning sun before West hit two pairs while waiting on a flush draw and scooped up the $318,738 top prize. Obrestad took home $215,922 – her biggest win since turning 21 last spring.

Other top players who got in the money include: Phil Hellmuth, who finished in 19th place, Billy Kopp, who left the tables in 12th and Men “The Master” Nguyen whose run ended just short of the final table when he was eliminated in 11th place.

Obrestad’s leading man, Scott Montgomery won the $1,560 preliminary event worth over $47,000 and placed third in a $1,000 event as well for another $16,000. Chad Brown grabbed a win in one of the two $2,000 buy-in preliminary events to pocket $73,088.
