A 19-year old cashed out mulit – million dollars pot. Harrison Gimbel recently  graduated from The Benjamin School in Palm Beach Gardens this past spring. At his 19 he plays poker for real money.

“It’s just a great feeling,” Gimbel told CBS 12 by phone from the Bahamas. “I’m the youngest main event champion ever. I couldn’t ask for anything better right now.”

The teenager says he started playing poker with friends six years ago. “Poker’s really just a game of skill,” observed Gimbel. “It’s a lot like chess, where it’s like a mind game.”

And he’s gotten really good at it. The Bahamas tournament had more than 1,500 participants, each putting up $10,000 to play.

What’s Gimbel going to do with the $2.2 million dollar prize? “I’m probably going to get myself a new car,” responded Gimbel, explaining that he currently drives a 1999 Jeep Cherokee that doesn’t work very well.

He’ll also likely play more poker. Since one has to be 21 to play tournaments in the United States, he’s limited to overseas events for a couple more years.

“My plans might include playing some more tournaments around the world and practice my skills by play online poker games,” said Gimbel.  “Just travel the world, while I do what I love”
