Harrison takes 'em to class at WSOP

Editor's note: A replay of this final table can be found on demand at ESPN3.com.

Corey Harrison stepped out of the classroom for a trip to Las Vegas and found himself in front of a pile of chips and stacks of cash, smiling at the camera. The 36-year-old college professor defeated the field of 1,731 others to capture his first WSOP bracelet and $432,411 in the $1,500 no-limit hold 'em Event 24. This was his second cash of the Series and first live tournament victory for the Birmingham, AL native.

"I've been playing poker for 10 years, and grinding the WSOP Circuit events," Harrison said to the WSOP. "I had some success, but nothing like this. This is a great accomplishment. There's nothing like it."

Harrison took the summer off and part of his plans included a trip to the WSOP. He has a PhD in cellular molecular pathology and has no plans for the six-figure pay day as of yet.

"I'm a very patient person," he said. "That helps me in my research. In research, you have many days and nights spent in the lab. Then at the end, you might get a result that's not what you're expecting. So, it's the same thing in poker. You may have made the right play and got it in good, but get a wrong result."

The final table of Event 24 included EPT Champions Zimnan Ziyard (seventh) and Mohsin Charania (sixth). Other notable finishers include Kevin MacPhee (18th), Victor Ramdin (22nd), Sam Stein (23rd), Shannor Shorr (30th) and Paul Wasicka (31st). >
