After a long hard slug the final chapter of the Premier League 7 came to an epic battle where the best of the best fought it out on the felt for nearly a good week. Up for grabs a shot at the most sought after prize in poker and a small matter of $400,000 for first place to sweeten the deal as well. Eventually we would see local Canadian legend Sorel Mizzi go heads up against Jeff Gross and dominate the action right from the get go never stopping until that number 1 spot was all his.
