Man, I feel like I ran really good leading up to the final tables in pretty much every tournament including the ones I didn’t cash. I didn’t go all the way in all of them but I really really good, and it was a fun series for someone who plays high stakes. … I’m not really a trophy guy but because everyone else wanted it so much, and I got to keep it, it was pretty sweet winning it.”
