Just moments ago Jake Cody from England became the third player to claim poker's Triple Crown.

Cody, who already had WPT and EPT titles, won the WSOP Event #2: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship after outlasting WCOOP 2009 Main Event winner Yevgeniy "Jovial Gent" Timoshenko in the heads-up play.

With the win, Cody's winnings from live tournaments are now nearing the $3M mark.

Gus Hansen finished instead in 3rd place, and was not able to win his second WSOP gold bracelet.
