It was a day of great comebacks at the WSOP yesterday as William Haydon emulated $1k NLHE winner Jeff Tebben by coming back from being the short stack to taking the bracelet.
Haydon's comeback wasn't quite as prodigious as Tebben's but was still impressive enough. The youngster was patient, picking his spots and slowly building up his stack. The Napoleon Dynamite lookalike, whose only previous cash at the WSOP was a $30k score in last year's Main Event, finally sealed the win against pro Jeff Papola. The chips went in with Haydon's AJ dominant over Papola's A6. The jack kicker gave Haydon a winning Broadway straight and with it his first bracelet and the small matter of $630,031.Martins Adeniya led the British challenge, eventually finishing in ninth for $40,547. Other notable to make the money were Daniel Negreanu, Erik Cajelais, Justin Smith, David Benefield, Sorel Mizzi, Chris Moorman and Irish Open winner James Mitchell. The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1st: Will Haydon - $630,0312nd: Jeff Papola - $391,0683rd: Joe Baldwin - $248,2654th: Eddy Scharf - $163,6495th: Jarred Solomon - $110,9036th: Steve Cowley - $77,228Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
