Neil Willerson of Texas wins NLHE event 53

This year's World Series of Poker was marked by several victorious lawyers and one of them is the Texas attorney Neil Willerson (36) who bested a field of 3,166 participants on Tuesday to win his first bracelet in the event 53 - $1,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em and the impressive main prize of $737,248 .

A special flavor to Willerson's victory was added as he entered the heads up against the experienced Russian player Vladimir Mefodichev with a 3 to 1 chip disadvantage, and managed to fight his way back and ultimately beat his rival.

Other final table entrants went home with following payouts:

Vladimir Mefodichev $456,217

Hugh Henderson $322,866

Zachary Humphrey $233,708

Matthew Graham $171,135
