Bro of the Day: Pius Heinz destroys the WSOP with 6-hour heads-up victory

CONGRATS to the 22-year-old German bro, Pius Heinz, who poned 35-year-old Martin Staszko to claim the $8.7 million top spot at the World Series of Poker last night in Las Vegas.

Damn son, that's a lot of guap!

Pius tells ESPN about his knack for game-murdering.

Quoted from PoketFives.com:
"Around 3:15am ET on Wednesday morning, Pius Heinz (pictured) became the first World Series of Poker Main Event champion from Germany. After a timely double up, Heinz put an end to the longest heads-up match in the last 10 years at the WSOP. Providing an early congratulations to Heinz was ESPN’s Andrew Feldman, who Tweeted, “Congrats to Pius Heinz, 2011 WSOP Main Event champ & now $8.7 million richer. He eliminated Staszko after an epic heads-up battle.”

Epic was an operative adjective for the marathon heads-up session, which stretched six hours following Ben Lamb’s elimination in third place after four hands. After Heinz recorded better than a 4:1 chip lead heads-up, with only 85 total big blinds in play, the final hand of the 2011 WSOP Main Event occurred."

Like it or not, Germany won today.
