Sixty-two year old Andre Boyer's best poker accomplishment was a 6th place finish in the 1996 <a href="http://www.pokertips.org/wsop/all/Championship_Event">Main Event<A>. In Event #33, Boyer bested that feat by winning the first WSOP event of his career. The win paid a healthy $682,810 to the Canadian champion.
