Pius Heinz Wins the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event for $8,715,638

22yr old Pius Heinz from Germany becomes the first player from his country to win the WSOP Main event.

He passed through 6,865 opponents to be crowned the 2011 champ and receives his customary bracelet along with a nice $8,715,638.

The tournament that commenced in July goes on a 3 month break before the final table plays and ends the season with what is known as the 'November Nine'.

The final hand against runner up Martin Staszko saw Heinz pick up AKo. Martin shoved with T7cc and Pius made the easy call.

You can see how the hand went down in the clip below:

  1. Thanks for this. First time in years I didn't actually watch the final table. Looks like another young internet type player. Good for him.
