Youngest World Series of Poker Winner (VIDEO)

Joe Cada became the youngest World Series of Poker winner ever last night, beating out a competitor twice his age to take home the $8 million first place prize.

The young Joe Cada, whose mother is a pro poker dealer, and who plays dozens of games online every day, broke the record for youngest winner ever in the WSOP, once held by the legendary (or should I say infamous) Phil Hellmuth, who was on hand and took pictures with the new champion.

Cada one the final hand when his pocket 9s saw an all-in from his opponent who held two suited overcards, and Cada's pair survived through the river. That's poker action at its best! Always fun to watch this display of card-playing strategy every year.
