A middle aged man mistakenly enters the wrong competition and wins a World Series of Poker title by accident.
Christian Pham, from Minnesota, emerged victorious from the prestigious tournament on Thursday, beating 219 of the best players in the game.
The professional poker player said that he meant to sign up to play no-limit Texas Hold ‘em but instead signed up for a different event happening the same day: no-limit deuce-to-seven draw lowball. –independent
Mr Pham explained to Poker News how he only realised his error when he sat down to play and was dealt his first cards: “When I got to the table, and when I got dealt five cards. I realised that something was wrong.”
I said ‘Oh my god!’ because in Minnesota we don’t have this game. This was the first time I played this game, but I tried to learn the game at the table from the people at the table.
