Paul Wasicka wins National Heads Up Poker Championship

by Lou on March 5, 2007

Kudos to Paul Wasicka for winning the National Heads Up Poker Championship.
With this win, his second place finish in the 2006 World Series of Poker, and his fourth place finish just a week ago in Commerce’s Los Angeles Poker Classic final event — good for more than $450,000 — Wasicka is showing that he is not just a one-time-wonder. He’s had an amazing run over the past year, and with these finishes, he now has the bankroll to prove it.
Sometimes it takes a while to determine who goes on to stardom. In the aftermath of the 2006 WSOP, which was dominated by the Jamie Gold-Crispin Leyser dispute over Gold’s obligation to Leyser, not much attention was paid to the other finishers.
But more than half a year later Wasicka seems to have broken out of the pack with a couple of amazingly good performances under his belt, and is poised to join poker’s elite if he keeps it up.
