The winner of the $5,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em championship was James Mackey. He is a 21-year-old (aspiring) poker professional from Columbia, MO. Mackey is originally from Kansas City. He attended the University of Missouri for two years. Mackey studied medicine at UM. He took a leave of absence between his sophomore and senior year to play poker. He has supported himself for about a year since then, and will no doubt have a much bigger bankroll now after winning this event. First place paid $730,740. Mackey stated he intends to return to school at some point. However, he has found poker to be so lucrative that he wants to concentrate on improving as a player for a time before deciding what to pursue in terms of an education. He plans to stay in Columbia, MO. Mackey was supported by a core group of poker players who met online. He is well-known in the online community. He is the third-youngest WSOP winner in history. At 21 years and 4 months, Mackey is a bit older than Jeff Madsen and Steve Billirakis (21 years, 11 days).
