Greenwood had to survive some intense moments to take home the title in Event #44, a No-Limit Hold’em tournament with rebuys. Although he might have a career in something else thanks to his schooling, he became rich because of his card playing.
For winning the tournament, Greenwood took home $693,444. He found himself in one of the fiercest heads up battles that we have seen up until this point at this year’s WSOP.

Greenwood eventually wore down Mouritsen and won the tournament while holding A-J to Mouritsen’s K-J. Mouritsen won $445,523 for finishing as the tournaments runner up.…
