Joe Cada, 21, became the new World Champion just a few moments ago! He and Darvin Moon played heads-up for almost 3,5 hours, and WOW what an heads-up it was! Cada started with more than double the chips than Moon. But Moon had no plans on giving up as he gave Cada a really tough fight and even overtook the lead for a while.
The big turn for Joe Cada came when he flopped middle pair and Moon pushe[...] Read more » Joe Cada is the new World Champion!

WOW... i didnt read this article before... I'm so glad that Kid won it... everyone was all about Moon and Ivey winning it... well I'm more than surprised but few good hands a bit of luck and he goes home with $ 8.5 mil... nice job
Such a shame for Moon.. He made one fatal error and that subsequently cost him the tournament.
He had a huge chip lead and was pushing Cada all over the table, but then came Moons fatal mistake of shoving all in on a board of 10 5 9 10. Hoping like mad, that Cada would fold. After what seemed like a lifetime, and much to the discomfort of Moon, Cada amazingly announced I CALL.. turning of J 9 giving him middle pair. and fighting for his tournament life and a 150 million pot. Moon turned over 7 8 giving him an open ended straight draw.
Moon missed his draw and that put Cada once again in the lead, and left Moon totally lost.
Only a few hands later Cada raised from the button, Moon re-raised and Cada shoved. Moon instacalled with QJ suited, only to see that Cada had pocket 9s. The board didnt help Moon and Cada took down the game and the title.
Had Moon not made that mistake with the open ender, rest assured, Cada would have lost the match.. Moon had him completely on the ropes up till that point.

BEAUTIFUL - Millions won with a pair of 9's! It pays to know how to play. I like this guy Cada, he was patient and it payed off.
Moon didn't have much of a chance when the flop was revealed. I think he got anxious. . . I would be too with a QJ suited. It was an awsome standoff! I can't wait to see these guys in action again. But, hmm 150million? I think I could take a bit of time off.. hehe Kudos, PANIC

Cada is NOT the best player in the world... no way... BUT it´s a huge tournament for sure and everything can happen. I guess everybody was supporting phill at the final table....a bracelet for him would be pretty cool... Great Champ anyway =)

pfffff what a terrible end. 3 million dollars and the WSOP title decided for a coin flip. I understand Cada's move but I don't get it Moon's call. Great that he had not hit his outs after that call. Congrats to Cada anyway.
Congradulations to the winner, he got some luck to win it, but the eventual winner of any tournament needs some to have a shot. The real disapointment was Phil only coming 7th. Thought he had a better shot at being in the top 4.
