It’s just a massive relief, I’m super happy. All my friends have bracelets and they have been needling me about the bracelet winners event this year.

I feel like I’m in a dream. I wanted this ever since I first started playing poker. Ever since I won yesterday, and knew I was going to the final table, it hasn’t felt real. I’ve just been trying to live up every moment at the final table.

I’m a poker player for right now. Poker is awesome. I can play poker all day, all night long. This kind of helps figure out whether or not I want to keep doing it. I don’t play cash stakes at all.
