Well, that's all folks. The crowds have come and gone, the cards have fallen, and a Champion was crowned. Jerry Yang will make a fantastic poker ambassador. His dominance of the final table was reminiscent of Jamie Gold's performance last year, however his victory speech was a polar opposite. Jerry is a naturally humble guy, with a firm faith and a deep respect of his fellow man. He pledged to donate 10% of his winnings to charity, and said that he wanted to give something back to the community. He was very appreciative, and thanked Jeffrey Pollack and his staff for all their hard work throughout the Series. He thanked his wife, who he said worked very hard, but "does not have to work anymore!", and said he was going to ensure his six children received the best education.After all the cameras and bright lights subsided, we caught a glimpse of a real guy, with a solid foundation who loves his family - a true Champion.
I am MUCH happier than I was last year after the main event, because it seems as though a genuine class act, and perhaps a Christian, has won the main event. Watching his exit interview showed that this guy has his head on straight, and as it says above, will be a great ambassador of the next year!
