This competition saw a field of 570 participants and his magnificent victory allowed him to pocket a gain of $ 268,238. It is his second cash in the WSOP of this year because actually, he finished in the 9th place of no-limit hold'em heads'up of $ 10,000 buy-in during which he collected $ 38,424. This year 2010 is a good period for Smith because in January, he was awarded of a gain of $ 188,743 in the Fallsview Poker Classic tournament held at Casino Fallsview of Ontario.
