“It’s about time, I’ve been coming to these things for 25 years trying to win,” joked Svec as he posed for the standard WSOP tournament winner photo behind his trophy; his stack of chips; and the two cards, the ace and five of spades, that won the final hand of poker making him the 2011 Harrah’s Tunica World Series of Poker Media Tournament Champion.
The CVB’s Chrissy Garner, representing the Tunica blog, placed fifth in the tournament, winning $500 in free play.
