The First WSOP Open Event Already Has Its First Winner

01.06.2012 | Antoan Tok

Brent Hanks is a 29-year old professional poker player, former school teacher, who won the first World Series of Poker tournament on Wednesday night. He collected his prize of $517,725 and his first WSOP gold bracelet.

His victory was really memorable, because he had to overcome a lot of obstacles. On the first place it was the huge field size. The other one was the other finalist – Jacob Beazley, who was at the same age and worked as a school teacher just like the winner Hanks. They were also friends, and hanged out together during the tournament.

The most incredible was Hanks` remarkable comeback during the second day of the tournament. On that day he had chips only to cover the small blind, and in the evening he managed to become one of the chip leaders, which proved once again that in one poker tournament, anything is possible.
