Hoyt Corkins, Men "The Master" Nguyen, and Freddy Deeb Do Not Win WPT World Poker Open, Can't Dunk a Basketball Either

Brett Faustman wins WPT World Poker Open in TunicaIn what has to be the shortest (height-wise) final table in WPT history (can that new STATS database run a query on this one?), Brett Faustman out-metaphored Hoyt Corkins for the World Poker Open crown in majestic Tunica, Mississippi.

This is Faustman's first major tournament cash. For the win, Faustman, who used to be a collegiate wrestler meaning he may have cauliflower ears, banks $892,413.

Hoyt Corkins, who has gone "all-in" more times than any other player in WPT history if you know what we mean, banks $458,267. Men "The Master" Nguyen finished third earning $241,193. Half-man, half-amazing Freddy Deeb came in fourth ($168,835), Gabe Costner finished fifth ($123,008), and everyone's favorite nicotine-addicted uncle John Spadavecchia came in sixth ($96,477).

In related news, after the final table wrapped, Corkins, Men the Master, Deeb, and Spadavecchia jockeyed some horses.
