21-year-old becomes youngest WSOP poker champion ever

• AP
A 21-year-old Michigan poker professional who chose cards over college won the World Series of Poker main event in Las Vegas early Tuesday, winning $8.55 million and becoming the youngest player to win the tournament in its 40-year history.

Joe Cada of Shelby Township, Mich., turned over a pair of nines early after 46-year old Darvin Moon called his all-in wager with a suited queen-jack, setting up an about-even race for most of the chips on the table.

This was the first article I have read on a poker tournament.  I realize poker has gained a huge following on TV.  But this amused me to read poker being discussed as you do a gold game.  I kind of liked it even if it is a bit too serious for a game.  An $8.55 million game.
