The winner of the $2,500 buy-in Six-Handed No-Limit Hold´em championship was Hoyt Corkins, who lives in Las Vegas, NV. Corkins, aged 47, is originally from Alabama. This was his second WSOP gold bracelet. Corkins win his first WSOP event back in 1992. In the fifteen years that have passed until now, Corkins quit the poker circuit for about eight years. Since he has returned to the poker scene, Corkins has won and finished high in a variety of tournaments. Yet repeating as a WSOP winner has been an elusive prize. He finally cracked the barrier in this event and cashed for $515,065. Corkins won his first gold bracelet in Pot-Limit Omaha. There were only 48 entries in that event. This time, the field was considerably larger. Corkins bested a field of 847 players. Corkins dominated play throughout the tournament. No player this year has demonstrated such supremacy over a three-day period. He ended the first say as the chip leader. He was the chip leader at the start of the final table. And, he never lost the chip lead throughout the five hour finale. This was Corkins tournament from start to finish.
