Alex Jim Wins Event 2 ($134,570)
After two long days of play it was the New York native Alex Jim in the winners circle. Jim started Day 2 in the middle of the pack with just under 100,000 but picked his spots and stayed patient throughout the day.
Jeremy Wing managed to take the chip lead during heads-up play but Jim kept his composure and quickly battled back. The $134,570 first place cash is Jim's largest live tournament score and he wins his first major title along with the coveted WSOP Circuit ring.
