                “I thought there was no way I’d make it anywhere close to the end.  I lost my free “horseshoe” (free life line) on the first day of the contest!”

 

Gil Winston, of Manalapan, NJ, finished in second-place with a final bankroll of $762.30.  Winston, a regular WHHC participant, received $1,250 for his 2nd place finish and the most contest winners and a WHHC seat.
