David Stucke may teach Physics to university students, but he can play poker with the best of them. Stucke, a 33-year-old native of Henderson, Nevada, has been playing poker seriously for the last three years but had never cashed in a major event. He picked a good time and place for his first one.

The $1,500 no-limit hold 'em (Event 27) finished on Monday with Stucke earning $603,069 for the victory.

Other notable finishers include Sabyl Cohen (11th), the highest female finisher from the 2006 main event, Tim West (21st), David Williams (50th), and Dr. Bruce Van Horn (35th, main event runner-up in 1996).
