We just mentioned David "Doc" Sands and Erika Moutinho are seated within close view as we just mentioned, but also right nearby is Tony Cousineau. Cousineau is 17th on the list for All-Time World Series of Poker Cashes with 51. He's just one cash behind Brent Carter, "Miami" John Cernuto and David Chiu, which is very good company.

Now although Cousineau holds so many WSOP cashes, he has yet to win a gold bracelet. He's come close a few times with six final tables, but he's never finished better than fourth place. Below are the six WSOP final table results Cousineau has to his credit.

  • 2000 $5,000 Seven Card Stud: 6th - $20,200
  • 2001 $1,500 Omaha: 4th - $12,570
  • 2002 $3,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em: 6th $17,300
  • 2003 $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha: 7th - $5,000
  • 2004 $2,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em: 8th - $17,880
  • 2005 $5,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em: 5th - $67,400

Sands and Moutinho Together in Action

donpeters • Level 1: 25-25, 0 ante

Last year in the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event, David "Doc" Sands and his now fiancé Erika Moutinho ran deep, finishing in 30th and 29th, respectively. Both of them earned $242,636. Here in Event 19: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em, Moutinho has taken her seat just a few feet in front of us while Sands is seated over at the diagonally adjacent table about 20 feet away.

Coupling Moutinho's recent success on the felt with Sands' very stout record, the two are presently considered one of the best poker couples around, if not the best. We'll be sure to keep an eye on them here today as they start up another quest for a gold bracelet.

Last year, our very own Lynn Gilmartin tested Sands on how much he knows about his lady in an edition of the WAG Diaries. Check out the video here.
