Another Year Over...

Goodbye & Goodluck........
Well, that's all folks. The crowds have come and gone, the cards have fallen, and a Champion has been 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 the 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 percent 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 that 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.
