'Gramps' wins WSOPC Southern Indiana

Samuel Oberlin

You might expect a poker player called "Gramps" to be an old man in plaid pants and suspenders, but the "Gramps" who won the 2008 World Series of Poker Circuit main event at the Horseshoe Southern Indiana turned out to be 22-year-old Samuel Oberlin.

"My friends are idiots, and I take care of them," Oberlin said to explain the nickname.

He certainly showed he could take care of a final table as well, walking away with $143,064, a gold and diamond trophy ring and the $10,000 buy-in to the 2009 interview with PokerListings that he isn't looking to give up his usual cash game, but he may head to the Horseshoe Hammond to take on another WSOPC event as well.
