The Event 55 winner - $10,000 World Championship No Limit Holdem is Jerry Yang.

Jerry Yang was born in Laos before his family fled to Thailand where they stayed in a refugee camp for four years. From there, his family moved to the United States, landing in California.

A complete unknown to the poker world, Yang entered a satellite tournament for the WSOP Main Event for a whopping $225. After winning the $10,000 seat, Yang parlayed his $225 into a win at the 2007 WSOP Main Event for more than $8 million.
