It’s only the second [tournament] I’ve played here in the last four or five years … I like deuce-to-seven best. It’s my favorite game. It’s the toughest true poker game. It’s much more complicated than a lot of the other games where the math comes in so much. This game, it’s the read of the player. It’s so difficult to make a hand; you rarely make a hand. Most hands, somebody’s bluffing, or somebody’s calling a bluff. … That’s what makes it the greatest poker game.

It’s the most amazing thing. I’m about to have a baby next month and I’m only here to play three tournaments. This is the third one and I just won it. It’s unbelievable … We all come out here every summer together and make it our family thing. My dad [Yosef Fox] took 100th in the Main Event in 2015, I took 27th last year. Every time we get here we all get together and coach and rally each other. I don’t know how I’d do without the rail.

It’s 170 thousand, so yeah, it’s a big deal. I’m here for the money. I’ve been playing 8-game mix for at least 10 years, all the tournaments are the same for the most part.

Winning a bracelet is awesome honestly. I got a bracelet before I got a ring, I play a lot of circuit events and got a lot of second and thirds, but no win yet. I guess I was saving the win for the bracelet. I don’t feel like I need to win a ring now, because I have one better … I like how PLO seems to be getting more popular every year. I think it’s a lot more fun than Hold’em so I think it’s cool that more people are getting interested.

Event #27 – $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8-or-Better
Winner: Michael Mizrachi ($142,801)
- Entries: 460
- Prizepool: $621,000
It was a tough table but I think the experience helped me out a little bit from, you know, a lot of tournament experience. I feel like I had a pretty good edge on the players in certain spots where they probably wouldn’t play hands. I played those hands where I know they’re going to fold and that way I can win a lot of antes and bring-ins.
- Winner: Michael Mizrachi ($142,801)
- Runner-Up: Robert Gray ($88,254)
Event #28 – $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em
Winner: Stephen Song ($341,854)

- Prizepool: $2,229,300
It’s surreal. I don’t even know. The money’s insane. WSOP summer is where you can actually make life-changing money. It’s pretty unreal … I already invest most of my money with my parents. My dad’s the smartest guy I know. He’s super-good with money. I just give it to him and he takes care of it for me. They’re going to help me buy my first house, which is pretty sick. Now I’ll have to buy a couple more, just for the tax write-off.
- Winner: Stephen Song ($341,854)
- Runner-Up: Scot Masters ($211,177)
Event #29 – $10,000 H.O.R.S.E Championship
Winner: Greg Mueller ($425,347)
- Entries: 172
- Prizepool: $1,616,800
Being a little bit older, I don’t really love poker as much any more. It’s more of a grind and stuff for me, right? Sitting a long time at the table. But winning one a long time ago, and not really caring as much, I was like, ‘You know what? I want to win one again … I put a lot of effort into not so much studying the game but into my own physical and mental state. I got really fit and was able to endure the hours and do the right things. I said five days ago when I posted on Instagram that I was going to final-table an event ASAP. I didn’t know it would come this quick and I didn’t know I would win the bracelet. It feels amazing.

It’s been my dream! I started to play poker seriously back in 2009 and after watching Moneymaker win in 2003, I believed that anybody could win. I’ve been coming here since 2011 or 2012. It’s been my dream and I’ve gotten very deep in tournaments three times. Finally, I’ve gotten first place. I’m very, very happy! There is nothing like playing poker with friends. That’s my saying. Whether I take a hit, or I didn’t take a hit, I was smiling and I was having fun. That’s what poker should be.
