Joe Pelton, who is currently not a legend but may one day become a legend, especially if he does something like pull the Excalibur sword out of a rock or kill a grizzly bear attacking a group of Girl Scouts with his bare hands…twice…has won
For the win, Pelton banks $1,577,170. Pelton beat Frankie O’Dell heads-up for the title. Hoyt Corkins finished third, Kevin O’Donnell fourth, Randy Holland fifth, and Scotty Nguyen sixth.
Previous WPT Legends of Poker winners include Chris Karagulleyan (non), Mel Judah (non), Doyle Brunson (total legend), and Alex Kahaner (non). That doesn’t leave a good track record for Pelton’s chances at becoming a legend.
