Georgia teen only American remaining in European Poker Tour final

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - A teen from Georgia is the only American remaining in the European Poker Tour's Grand Final.

Jeff Williams of Dunwoody was in third place as the final day of play began in Monaco today.

The University of Georgia freshman has outlasted three World Series of Poker world champions, including American Greg Raymer and last year's winner, Joe Hachem of Australia.

The nearly 300-player tourney began Wednesday. The 19-year-old says he hasn't been in many large-player tournaments.

In fact, he's mostly played online where he doesn't see opponents' faces and how they handle their chips.

The teen gained entry by winning a 40-dollar online competition on the Web site PokerStars-dot-com.

He's guaranteed at least 100-thousand dollars by making it to the final.

First prize runs more than a million. Speaking today from Monte Carlo, Williams say he thinks he can win. As he put it, "Everybody is dealt two cards, so I think I've got a good chance."
