The winner of the $1,500 buy-in Pot-Limit Hold'em (with re-buys) championship was Alan Smurfit, a 64-year-old retiree from Miami, FL. Smurfit was born in Ireland. This is his second year to compete at the World Series of Poker. It is his first time ever to cash at the WSOP after a dozen cashes at tournaments elsewhere. -- Smurfit's victory was not only the most hard-fought battle at this year's World Series, to date. It was certainly the year's greatest comeback. Smurfit began the final table dead last in chips. He started with 95,000 in his stack to his eight opponents, each who had upwards of ten times that amount. Smurfit's victory was a staggeringly impressive accomplishment, not only of perseverance, but of physical and mental endurance. -- The final table clocked in at just over nine hours. However, heads-up play lasted a mind-boggling 167 hands, spread over six hours. It was one of the longest Pot-Limit Omaha heads-up matches in WSOP history. First place paid $464,867. -- Smurfit is the owner of the 'K-Club,' one of the most famous luxury resorts and golf courses in Ireland. It is the equivalent of Augusta National.
