Jake Cody Wins 2011 WSOP $25K Heads-Up Championship

UK pro Jake Cody has just picked up his first ever WSOP bracelet after triumphing at the $25K Heads-Up Championship Event in Las Vegas, yesterday.
In addition to  pocketing the $851,192 WSOP first place prize, Cody also completes a triple crown of major poker events, which also includes an EPT and a WPT title.
Cody, 22, has been playing live tournament for around two years now, during which time he won the €5k EPT Deauville for $1,213,194 in January 2010.
The same year, Cody then went on to win the £5,000 WPT London for $425,492, and now with his latest win at the 2011 WSOP in Vegas, has taken his lifetime tournament earnings to an impressive $2,668,791.
On his way to winning the WSOP $25K Heads-Up Championship, Jake Cody had to battle it out against Brandon Adams, Frank Kassela, Dani Stern, Jonathan Jaffe, Anthony Guetti, Gus Hansen and finally, Timoshenko in the final.
Cody certainly had no lack of support during his three hours match against Timoshenko, yesterday. Eventually, the Brit had cause to celebrate along with his supporters after yet another all-in preflop shove, which was called by Timoshenko with A-5.
Fortunately for Cody, his K-9 spiked a king on the flop to take down the tournament, and reflecting on his runner-up finish worth $525,980, Timoshenko said:
“I’m happy with how I played. I really have no regrets, other than losing my all-ins. The way Jake played, and you can’t blame him, he played very aggressively. He didn’t want to see flops, he just played a lot more preflop poker which, I was kind of, I don’t want to say frustrated by, but I did want to see more flops. I play a lot of heads-up no-limit and that’s kind of what I like to do is see flops and figure things out postflop.”
In the meantime, with his latest victory Jake Cody has now become both the fastest, as well as the youngest triple crown winner in poker history.
