If you thought the days of seeing World Series of Poker bracelet winners past the age of forty were over, meet David “Doc” Arsht, the 66 year old physician from Philadelphia who won Event# 13, $1,500 Limit Hold'em.

Poker sage’s of old used to say, “Never play poker with a guy named “Doc.” Evidently 730 Holdem players didn’t believe in old adages and signed up to play with Doc to battle for a share of the $985,500 prize pool.

Last year at the 2011 WSOP, the Philly poker playing doctor cashed for $14,521 in the $1,500 H.O.R.S.E., which was his first WSOP cash since 2007 when he took home $7,826 from the $1,500 Limit Hold'em event. But this year, after three days of holding and folding, David “Doc” Arsht crushed his past WSOP performances by winning his first gold bracelet and $211,921 in cash.

Find out where David is headed to next, and watch the new champ talk about the final table…
