27-year-old wins Aruba Poker Classic

Matt Brady, a 27-year-old poker pro from Havertown, Pennsylvania, is the new title holder for the Aruba Poker Classic, having survived a field of 550 players and a tense and weather interrupted final table comprising some formidable opposition.

Along with the respect of the title comes a more tangible first prize check for a million dollars.

The final table for the 2008 Aruba Poker Classic included quality players like Johan Storakers and Allie Prescott who won $486 000 and $150 000 respectively for their second and fourth placings in the final game.

Entering the final table with the second highest chip stack, Brady put on a commanding display of poker skill and largely dominated the game through to the heads up with Storackers, in which he was victorious.

Six figure cashes extended right down to position 5 on the final table.

Brady's career winnings now stand at $1 788 546 with 44 cashes in a wide range of top poker tournaments.
