Only a week or so after he finished 2nd to Kevin Stammen in a $2,500 No Limit Hold'em event, Angel Guillen has managed to outlast 1,533 other players to claim his very first WSOP gold bracelet.
Mika Paasonen came to the final table with the chip lead, as well as the heads up but the lead changed several times and Guillen had his opponent all in twice. Guillen managed to pick up cards where it mattered and won the crucial big pots that are so important in a one-on-one situation.
Finally, after an epic five hour heads up battle, the Mexican has won out in the early hours of the morning.
Congratulations to Angel Guillen!
