Gollum Wins $2,000 Buy-in Pot Limit Hold’em Event at 2007 WSOP

Hopkins_38_2The winner of the $2,000 buy-in Pot-Limit Hold’em championship at the 2007 World Series of Poker was a guy named Gollum, a river folk poker pro from Middle Earth whose given name was Sméagol but was called Gollum because of the noise he made in his throat, or at least that’s what we read on Wikipedia.

For the win, Gollum takes home $269,707, a gold champion’s bracelet and a Corum watch but said his one desire is still to possess some Ring he calls “Precious.”

Weirdo.
