In 2009, at the age of 21, Joe Cada became the youngest Main Event winner ever after besting a field of 6,494 players. Many doubted that Cada was a serious poker player after the big win, but he probably silenced some of the critics when he took down Event #32: $10,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em Championship this summer.

Interesting read,that final table sounded like a challenge to say the least.I don't think that you need to validate yourself as a good player if you have won the WSOP main event,that title is not a title you can fluke by getting a good start or an easy table.

Cheers mate finally he get his second one, the first one is always hard but the second one will be the hardest and so on, because poker keep changing and you have to adapt to new styles all the time and new players to be able to make it in the poker world, except maybe for SNG where push/fold once mastered can get you very far. Anyway congratulations to Joe Cada for taking out the event 32 and hope he adds another to his name and go on to a hot streak!

I don't think there was ever a doubt that Joe Cada is a "serious" player, but there was a lot of doubt as to his poker abilities. Hopefully for him this win will quiet his doubters, he seems like a nice person and has already gone further in poker than most people will in their entire lives.

It's too soon to advance with such comment, but we never know when we are facing one of the biggest poker promisses of nowadays. Things change quickly when people are young, and he can decide on leaving this life style like others have done while they were on the very positive side. But if he keeps this rythm, he can also turn into the youngest achiever of more bracelets. He probably still dreams with that too, time will tell what will happen, but he's on a good way for that!
