Corey Zeidman finally has his World Series of Poker championship bracelet.
Zeidman, 51, of Coral Springs, has been vying for a win at the annual Las Vegas event for almost 10 years. His dream came true at 3:30 a.m. Friday, when he won the Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split and $201,559.
He had finished in the money eight times earlier, including a sixth-place finish in the same event last year. Buy-in was $1,500, which attracted 622 players.
While Texas Hold 'em is clearly the game of choice in poker rooms nowadays, Zeidman plays a lot of stud.
"There aren't a lot of stud tournaments around, so the World Series is my chance to play them," he said.
