Oldest WSOP Main Event Winners

Johnny Moss may have been the oldest winner by default when he was voted the winner of the 1970 World Series of Poker, but he was also 62 years old. He proceeded to break his own record a couple of times and still holds it.

The oldest person not named Moss to win the WSOP Main Event was Noel Furlong at 61 in 1999. Here are the ten oldest Main Event Champs (ages listed in years.months.days format):
