Just 1,607 players showed up - and one dog - for the 2012 World Series of Poker’s (WSOP) 46th event, No Limit Holdem with a $2,500 buy-in. The prize pool rang up at $3,655,925 and 171 players would see a piece of it. Joey Weissman took the pressure off of everyone and relieved them of their chips as he worked his way to first place. He was a 24-year-old poker pro, he now is a 24-year-old poker pro with a gold bracelet and $694,609.

Weissman dropped out of college for poker and he often sleeps on the couches of friends and fellow poker players. He says it's not a matter of funds. "I’m going to stick on the couch for the rest of the summer. I’m having fun there. It’s all about the people you’re with - it’s not about where you’re staying."

Final play of the tournament came down to heads-up with Jeremy Quehen and Joey Weissman - and Joe Weissman's rail - and Joes Weissman's dog named Revis.

Weissman raised to 240,000 and Quehen called to see a flop of {q-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{3-Clubs}. Quehen bet 350,000. Weissman called.

The {7-Hearts} hit the turn and this time Quehen bet 800,000. Weissman called and the {j-Hearts} pealed off on the river.

Quehen announced his bet, "Two million!" before pushing the chips across the line.

Weissman announced that he was all-in and Quehen instantly called. Weissman tabled the {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts} and his fans - and Revis - were right there raising the roof in celebration.

Jeremy Quehen won $429,535 for his second place finish.

Joey Weissman is banking $694,609 and a gold bracelet for his first place finish. Congratulations Joey.'s Sarah Grant talks to Joey Weissman and Revis.
