George Unich of Delray Beach took home the trophy for the Wednesday night in the Dan LeBatard 790 The Ticket Celebrity Poker Tournament at Dania Jai-Alai. He's pictured with The Ticket's Roy Bellamy, who got the honor because he was the first guy knocked out, they said.
The final 14 players decided to call it a night and “chopped” the pot equally giving each player $490 for their $50 buy-in. Unich was the chip leader and was declared the champion.
