Battling his way through an eight-hour final table and some of the best players in poker (both young and old), the legendary T.J. Cloutier emerged as the champion of the $5,000 Scotty Nguyen Poker Challenge IV championship event at the Cherokee Casino in Catoosa, just outside of Tulsa, Okla.

Cloutier was sitting around the middle of the chip stacks as the final table started and was joined at the felt by some of the world's top professionals. The host of the tournament series, T.J.
