25 year old wins $1 million in tourney

Posted at June 20, 2006 10:55 AM in Other , by Greedy Gecko.

Joseph Tehan, 25, won $1 million dollars in the Mandalay Bay Championship in Las Vegas on June 8th. To win the prize he beat out 350 others in a 5 day tournament. Even though he trailed the final hand heading to the final card but the final card gave him the winning full house.

Tehan has a master's degree but he moved to Vegas a few years ago to play professionally. It took him a while to get enough money to play in large tournaments and it paid off. He started with $1000 tournaments, then $10,000. Even though he has only been playing for 5 year he was able to beat out more experienced players.

That goes to show you if you work on your game and take a few risks it can pay off. He plans to save and invest most of the money. He also plans to keep playing.
