Jerrod Ankenman from Avon, CT won Event 42, $2,500 Mixed Event, at the 2009 World Series of Poker and took home $241,654 in prize money.

Ankenman is a 32-year-old poker pro and author. He wrote "The Mathematics of Poker," along with two-time WSOP gold bracelet winner Bill Chen.

This was Ankenman's first WSOP win; a nice revenge after finishing as the runner up twice in previous WSOP events.

"Yeah, that is really nice.  I was happy for Bill Chen when he won.  That was the greatest WSOP ever (in 2006).  I am very happy to finally get one for myself," Ankenman said.

"Those second-place finishes were bittersweet.  It's really nice to get the prize.....In the first one, I had Ian Johns all-in (but lost).  Then I lost like 30 hands in a row and finished second (laughing).  In the second one, I was down about 3-1 in chips to Rob Hollink and he made a hand at the end and won."

Ankenman is particularly happy to have won a mixed game event.

"I think this is a great tournament and great format.  You get to play all kinds of different games.  Most of the players are good at some games but are not that good at others."

"I really like the Mixed Games format because it really shows off your chops as a good all-around player, instead of just all these tournaments everywhere else where they playing nothing but Hold'em."
