21-Year-Old Wins World Series of Poker

Still paying off student loans? Do yourself a favor and stop reading now. 21-year-old college dropout Joe Cada became the youngest-ever World Series of Poker winner after making an astounding comeback against the second-place finisher, lumberjack Darvin Moon. His prize? $8.5 million. Playing before an audience of 1,500 people at the Rio, Cada came back from a low of two million chips out of 194.8 million on Saturday, besting Moon, who won $5.1 million, with a pair of nines. The field was whittled down from 6,494 to 9 in July, and Moon and Cada knocked out Antoine Saout on Saturday. Cada, a Detroit native, is the son of a auto parts design engineer and a blackjack dealer.
