Minnesota resident accidently wins WSOP title

Nobody likes to make mistakes, but sometimes they can result in a pleasant surprise. Meet Christian Pham, a poker pro who thought he had entered a no-limit Texas Hold ‘em poker event. The 40-year-old man had actually signed up for a no-limit deuce-to-seven draw lowball tournament, which he even won.

Extremely successful debut

PokerPham managed to defeat 219 of the top competitors, which resulted in a staggering World Series of Poker title. “When the croupier dealt five cards it became clear that I was playing another game than I had planned. I tried to follow the other players as I had never played the game before”, the 40-year-old Minnesota resident said.

Fast learner

He appeared to be a fast learner as he became the winner of the poker tournament. “A few competitors were so kind to give me some tips, allowing me to learn the game more quickly.” Pham took home a whopping $81,314 in cash courtesy of the victory. The poker professional from Minnesota also received the famous golden bracelet.
