Oh Canada! Timex Triumphant at EPT Dortmund

Mike McDonald

In the midst of a week where poker history was being made right and left Mike "Timex" McDonald made a little history of his own.

The 18-year-old Canadian became the youngest-ever EPT winner by outlasting 410 players to win the German Open, also down as EPT Dortmund.

Earlier in the week Steve Billirakis became the new youngest WSOP winner when he won Event 1 at the Tony G.

All is well now for the young Canadian, however. There is no doubt that he will be a terror on the poker circuit for years to come - and given his age that means a very, very long time.
