​We have a new World League Poker Champion! JACOB MILLER from New York bested Chris Nunes in a heads up battle to become the new WLPC Champion!

Jacob, a World Tavern Poker player from New York, came into the final table with a decent chip lead over his opponents. Chris, a West Coast Poker League member from California, was a short stack with just less than 5 big blinds. But both manuevered their way to the end, and as heads up play began, the chip counts (4.7 million to 4.4 million) were virtually identical.

Congrats to the nearly 300 players from all across the world who competed in this event! Two players from Redtooth Poker cashed in the WLPC, and several from other leagues (including World Tavern Poker) also made the money.

Here are your final 8 from the WLPC:
