1989 World Series of Poker


The 1989 World Series of Poker (WSOP) was held at Binion's Horseshoe. The 1989 Main Event was won by 24-year-old Phil Hellmuth, defeating defending champion Johnny Chan, and also breaking the record for the youngest player to win the WSOP Main Event (a record previously set by Stu Ungar in 1980). Had Johnny Chan won, he would have tied Johnny Moss's record of 3 Main Event wins. This year also marked the first year in which Johnny Moss did not finish any WSOP tournaments inside the payout positions.

Famous quotes containing the words poker, series and/or world:

    The poker player learns that sometimes both science and common sense are wrong; that the bumblebee can fly; that, perhaps, one should never trust an expert; that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of by those with an academic bent.
    David Mamet (b. 1947)

    I thought I never wanted to be a father. A child seemed to be a series of limitations and responsibilities that offered no reward. But when I experienced the perfection of fatherhood, the rest of the world remade itself before my eyes.
    Kent Nerburn (20th century)

    Thou all sweetness dost enclose
    Like a little world of bliss.
    Beauty guards thy looks: the rose
    In them pure and eternal is.
    Thomas Campion (1567–1620)
