“I haven’t had the best track record over the years in bracelet events so making a run like that feels pretty good,” he says. “Getting second in any tournament let alone a WSOP bracelet event can be depressing if you let it. I obviously wasn’t feeling great after busting, but then reality starts to set in a few hours later and you realize how insane you ran to get to that point.”
