  The three-day event, presented by the ESPN Deportes and the World Domino Federation, gathered over 554 domino enthusiasts, with representation from nine countries from Latin America, Canada, Portugal, Spain, Russia and the United States.

  The contestants represent 22 different countries battle for a $5,000 first place prize.

  Freddy Vera from Puerto Rico won the individuals category and Fabio Baduy and Reinaldo Troconis from Venezuela took home the prize in the pair's category. Vera got his early lessons in dominoes at the age of 14 by observing people playing the game in the streets of his native San Sebastian.

   Friends since attending Universidad Simon Bolivar in Caracas, Venezuela, Fabio Baduy and Reinaldo Troconis have been playing dominoes for over a decade. Baduy, a computer engineer and Troconis, a systems analyst, credit their passion for the game to the university's security guards who taught them how to master the game.

  ESPN Deportes will televise all the action of the VI World Domino Championship in September 2008.
