BRPROUD/Louisiana native Joseph Hebert wins 2020 World Series of Poker

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (WDSU) — Metairie resident Joseph Hebert is the best poker player in the United States.

On Monday evening in Las Vegas, the 38-year-old won the famed World Series of Poker.

After four hours of play at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino Hebert came out on top winning $1,533,256.

In a nod to New Orleans, Hebert wore a Pelicans cap during his championship event.

In an interview with the website Hebert said, “I was just really confident. I was excited to play and it was just a battle. It wasn’t easy, I tell ya that much. The guys played great. It was just a battle the whole way through.”

The win was emotional for Hebert, who was playing to honor his mother, Linda, who passed away last summer following a pulmonary embolism.

“I really felt like I was dreaming. I thought about my mom, and I know that she was here and this was for her. She would be so excited to see it, so I’m just so happy I got it for her,” said Hebert in an interview with The Hendon Mob.

Hebert will now face international poker champion Damian Salas to become world champion and win an additional $1 million prize.
