Toronto-based Sam Greenwood topped a huge field of 1,915 players in Event #22 $1,000 No Limit Hold 'em to become the first Canadian gold bracelet winner at this year's World Series of Poker. In addition to the gold bracelet, he received $318,977 out of the total prize pool of $1,723,500.

Greenwood described himself to interviewers as a "poker enthusiast" rather than a poker pro. "I really wouldn't call myself a poker pro. I'm not really sure what I am or what I want to do. I just hope poker gives me enough of a steady income to do something later on."

"Things really worked out for me tonight. I won most of my pre-flop all-in raises, my made hands got paid off - that's what it takes to win one of these," he added.

OTHER NOTABLE IN-THE MONEY FINISHERS:

Gold bracelet winner and 2009 Ladies World Champion Lisa Hamilton cashed in this event, finishing 15th.

Multiple gold bracelet winners who cashed included - Dan Heimiller (2 wins), Barry Shulman (2 wins), Antonio Esfandiari (3 wins).

It's not THAT hard finding out whether you a pro or not, you just need to take a long hard look on your earnings and measure it up 2 how big of a % comes from playing cards. If the answer is 'more than half' then you are no longer just an enthusiast.
