Greg Raymer wins at HPT Ameristar East Chicago Main Event and takes home an outstanding $171,411

Greg "FossilMan" Raymer was ecstatic after winning at the Heartland Poker Tour (HPT) Ameristar East Chicago $1,650 Main Event. This win is his record 5th HPT Main Event title.

Raymer, 2012 HPT Player of the Year, told HPT Tournament Director Jeremy Smith about dominating the 520-player field, this is what he said:

"It feels great. Every one's more special than the last."

This latest win of his makes him the third on HPT's all-time career earnings list, behind Craig Casino and Reginald "Shawn" Roberts.

Best known for winning the 2004 WSOP Main Event, the 55-year-old survived and found himself heads-to-head against Evan Bethyo who began the day as chip leader.

Raymer found a double on the very first hand with his rivered Queens-up, enough to defeat Bethyo's Jacks-up. He said:

"When I catch the queen on the river to make a better two pair, that's just luck. There's a lot of luck in poker, and there's a lot more luck in heads-up poker, because if you fold every time you don't have top pair or better, you're gonna get run over and you'll have no shot. Evan did not let me run him over at all. I'll definitely say luck was on my side in the heads-up play, for sure."
