Veteran Poker Pro 'Action' Dan Harrington Shows the Young Bloods Who's Boss by Winning 'POKER ROYALE: BATTLE OF THE AGES'

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 3 -- In a fierce heads up match between "Action" Dan Harrington and Michael "The Kid" Gracz, time and experience was on the veteran's side as he schooled the young blood on poker. After playing in three previous matches and the finale, Harrington took home the grand prize of $50,000, and the POKER ROYALE: BATTLE OF THE AGES crown.

Known for his "action" at the table, Harrington is one of the most recognized players on the poker circuit today. Gracz has also made a name for himself in his young career. Most recently, he won World Poker Tour's PartyPoker.com Million IV in March of 2005.

Harrington and Gracz had tough company at the final table. They beat out veterans "Miami" John Cernuto and Wendeen Eolis and youngsters Jennifer Leigh, and Erin Ness. The stakes were high during the final hand. It came down to poker master Harrington having nearly a three-and-a-half-to-one chip lead over young blood Gracz.

Gracz raised with pocket jacks after Harrington called with king/queen suited, as both players tried to trap one another. Then, both players went all in and headed to the flop with eight/king/nine, giving Harrington a pair of kings. With the turn card an ace, and the river a queen. Harrington emerged victorious.

Other players for the veterans were TJ Cloutier (six World Series of Poker bracelets), Barbara Enright (best all around 2002 Legends of Poker) and Maureen Feduniak (1st Place 2003 World Poker Tour Ladies Night Main Event).

Other young poker stars were Dutch Boyd (tied for 11th place in the 2003 World Series of Poker main event), Evelyn Ng (2nd Place World Poker Tour Ladies Night) and Kasey Thompson (Associate Publisher of All In Magazine).
