Woah. Nice. What did he win?
Phew, he needs money for the studio!
Albini, 55, a recording engineer from Chicago, pulled off an unusual double at the final table. Albini busted six-time bracelet winner Chris Ferguson in fourth, then outlasted another six-time bracelet winner, Jeff Lisandro, to seal the victory.
Albini’s career-best payday more than doubled his previous lifetime WSOP earnings of $58,599, collected in five previous cashes.
He went on to say that he owes “an enormous debt of gratitude to my wife, Heather” and that they are in the middle of “a lot of complicated stuff going on at home and she was gracious enough to say it would be okay if I came out here for this. I really appreciate her indulging me in my… hobby.”
