2008 WSOP: Nenad Medic Captures First Bracelet, Wins Event #1

Nenad Medic wins event no 1 at 2008 WSOPNenad Medic won the first bracelet at the 2008 World Series of Poker, taking down Event #1 ($10,000 Pot Limit Hold'em).

This makes Medic's second major tourney title, having won the WPT's 2006 World Poker Finals.

Medic, who is nicknamed "The Serb" because he's ancestorially from Serbia, actually hails from Canada now. Typically this is where we'd make the obligatory ice fishing joke or something of that nature, eh?, but Medic is 6'5 and looks like he could give Bob Probert a run for his money, so we'll refrain for now. But if you need some Canadian humor fix, watch the "I'm Not Your Friend" remix again here.

For the win, Medic banks $794,112, pushing his career tourney earnings to over $3.6 mil.

Andy Bloch finished in the runner-up spot of yet another big tourney. He'll net $488,048. Kathy Liebert, a woman, finished third for $306,064.
