Longtime Las Vegas gambling veteran wins his first WSOP title.

Las Vegas, NV - There aren't many things that Jack 'Action' Zwerner hasn't seen and done in the world of gambling. He's the founder of the biggest bingo enterprise in America. He's worked as a high-level casino executive for the (now imploded) Dunes, Caesar's Palace, the Golden Nugget, and the Las Vegas Hilton. He's hung out with everyone from Steve Wynn to Larry Flynt to Stu Ungar. And now, he's won a World Series of Poker gold bracelet.

It almost didn't happen. Just days before the WSOP started, Zwerner admitted that he had no intention to play in the world's largest and most prestigious poker tournament. Zwerner had not played in the World Series in nearly 15 years. But his 21-year-old son started taking an interest in poker and encouraged the elder Zwerner to enter and play this year.

Zwerner's victory was neither an upset nor a surprise. After all, he arrived at the final table as one of the largest stacks. The always-dangerous Daniel Negreanu was a close second. For only two brief moments at the final table, Zwerner did not have the chip lead.

No one appreciated the honor or the significance of this moment more than Jack Zwerner. 'You have to get a little bit lucky to win a tournament,' he said. 'I was involved in hands at the right place at the right time. I tell you - there's nothing more satisfying than winning money gambling.'
