The 2011 WSOP Main Event just finished up and they can now add to there long list of winners a 22 year old German, Pius Heinz. He was able to beat Czech born Martin Staskzo for the $8.7 million dollar first prize. Do not feel bad for Staskzo because for his second place finish he walked away with a cool $5.3 million. One very interesting piece surrounding Heinz is the fact that he was not really sure about playing poker full time earlier this year. Just imagine how happy he must be right now that he did in fact grind through and played poker at the WSOP.
The heads up battle between Pius Heinz & Martin Staskzo lasted a total of 119 hands and the winning hand went down like this:
Heinz : Ace King
Staszko : 10 7 of Clubs
Board : 5 of clubs, 2 of diamonds, 9 of spads, jack of hearts and 4 of diamonds
Heinz was able to win it all with a Ace high and with that he is new WSOP Main Event champion!
