When there is over $1 million at stake in a poker tournament, it can be almost guaranteed that the professionals will show up with their game faces on. That was the case this week at the Legends of Poker tournament in California.

The tournament had some of the biggest names in poker entered. They fought for almost a week and in the end it was John Chan who came away with the top prize.

Amit Makhija was Phan's main competition. The two played three and a half hours of heads up poker before Phan emerged as the champion. It was "the greatest heads up match in WPT history,' according to Mike Sexton, WPT commentator.

The World Poker Tour will showcase the tournament when they begin their new contract with Fox Sports Net. The main event of the Legends Poker will be televised at a later date.

"We embrace all of our legends, but its all the sweeter when one of our home players takes home the prize," said Marketing Director Kelley O'Hara. Phan took home over $1 million for winning the main event.

"This was a hard won victory and viewers will be on the edge of their seats with this episode," said Casino Manager Zaven Esmaili.
