Everyone loves a Cinderella story, right? Right!

“I came here with a thousand bucks in my pocket,” McEuen said. “I basically came here with that, my dog, and my car – and that’s when I met my buddy John again, who really looked out for me. He gave me a shot to get back in the game.”

When heads-up play started between Jonas Lauck and Jesse McEuen, their chips stacks were close to even but by the time the next break hit, McEuen was in the lead.

Hand #167 was the first hand after the short break. Lauck bet 35,000 and McEuen raised to 135,000.

Lauck moved all-in and McEuen called. Lauck turned over the {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} while McEuen tabled the {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}.

The board ran out {2-Spades}{2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{5-Hearts}.

McEuen was ready to celebrate, but first things first. He went to Lauck for a handshake first.

Congratulations Jesse!
