1982 WSOP Main Event Final Hand

1982 WSOP Main Event Final Hand

Straus had tried to push all of his chips on the second day of the tournament, lost the hand, then discovered a single $500 chip that had been hidden under a napkin. Since he hadn’t verbally declared “all in”, he was allowed to remain in the tournament. His comeback to win the event coined the phrase “a chip and a chair”.

Duane “Dewey” Tomko had already won a WSOP bracelet in a $1,000 No Limit Hold ‘Em event in 1979 and would go on to win two more, in a $10,000 Deuce to Seven Draw event and a $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha event in 1984.
