Default Greatest WSOP feat?

What do you think is the greatest accomplishment in the WSOP?

Jack Straus won the WSOP in 1982. This was one of the most remarkable wins in WSOP history. Before the final table battle Jack Straus went all-in and lost in fact, he thought that he went all-in. But when he was going to leave the table he discovered that he has overlooked one $500 chip. And before that he hadnt said that he was all-in. So he was allowed to continue the game.

He ended up winning against Dewey Tomko.

I'd probably say Johnny Chan, just because he won two back to back years then came 2nd. And he is also in the lead with Doyle Brunson for most bracelets. Or Greg Raymer, to win the one in 2004 and then last years main event he came in what like 25th, and he came in as Chip Leader, if that one guy didnt play that hand so horrible he would have made the FT of 2005.

I think you would have to consider the winner of this year's tourney to be in the running for greatest feat ever. The main event is supposed to have like 9000 entrants. Coming in first against that many people is defintely going to be a feat!

Jack Strauss' victory after being down to one chip apparently isn't the only comeback from near elimination to win the main event. I read a while back that someone else essentially pulled off the same kind of feat, just not is such a story-like fashion by literally having one chip left - and by accident at that. Not sure if i remember correctly, but it might have been Billy Baxter,
