Pearce Arnold (Washington, DC)
Poker enthusiast Pearce Arnold has just won Event 5 to the tune of $81,182.
"Let's just play" became his mantra of the day and Play he did. Pearce is on fire - first he finished 36th in Event 1 and now he outlasted 1087 other entries in Event 5.
Bob Moran had him against the ropes heads up but somehow Pearce got the card he needed when he needed it.
He seemed to have a healthy stack the entire day and turned up the heat heads-up to wrap this 21 hour tournament up.
