“There are very few things that can compare to this. This win is very prestigious for me because this event series has all the top players in the world. I know the World Series of Poker main event is seen as more prestigious, but in that event, you need to get very lucky across nine days battling against a below average field. In these fields, you constantly have to play your best because otherwise, you’re just going to get destroyed.”
