Game Highlights
A twist this season, as the top six money makers are named: three men and three women. Entering in the 6th place, Bonnie Yu looking for her first bracelet after playing over just four seasons, and qualifying for her second consecutive final table match. In the 5th place, Brad Moody, playing at his first final table, 4th place Monica Froman - two time consecutive bracelet winner on the hunt for a third. In 3rd place, Sherri White (Ma Poker) who earned her way to the final table after winning places in the first five tournaments of the season. Second place, Ryan Yu, also looking for his first bracelet, but no stranger to the League's final table. Entering in the first position, Jim Entwistle - DPL two time champion, looking once again for his first bracelet, holding the unofficial record for qualifying for the most final tables without having won a bracelet.

Chips are passed around the table for the first hour and twenty eight minutes, at which time Ryan Yu finds that his pair of tens are no good against the full house made by Sherri White. Ryan finishes in the 6th place. One hour and forty eight minutes later, Monica Froman is dealt pocket kings and raises. Brad Moody moves all-in with pocket jacks. Froman makes the call and is sickened when a third jack hits the flop. Froman finishes in the fifth place. One hour and one minute pass before Jim Entwistle finds himself on the short stack and moves in with Q9. White makes the call with A2. Ace high wins the hand for White and she progresses with the chip lead. Fifty minutes later, White makes a better full house than Brad Moody and sends him packing, earning her a place heads up with Bonnie Yu, who spent most of her time managing the short stack position, now on the war path for the Summer Season bracelet. Nine minutes the heads up event would last. White is all in with pocket sixes, however Yu is holding pocket kings. Bonnie Yu earns the Summer Season 2008 Championship Title at 12:03am!
