James Schaaf, from Torrance, CA, was down to only 200 chips earlier in this tournament. He's managed to come back from nearly being felted to win the entire event. James has never been to the WSOP and has never cashed here before, so this is a great way to start out! Schaaf managed to dodge a bracelet-mad Phil Hellmuth along the way to win it all, and takes home $256,412 and the dazzling WSOP bracelet.
