Sergio Aido, lucky man now. Such a nice sum to win. Some people work all their life to built up that amount of money. That's why poker is so successful the last couple of years with a steep rising of the total players in the world. Poker lets amateurs believe they can conquer the world and win every tournament, a splendid cash prize. The truth is most of the players are losing money. It's only the players who have a slight control on the game and some patience that can get victorious from time to time.
I wish I could once, win such a tournament. I'd feel like I'm in the sky. Most of the money I would keep safe. But I'll buy myself some reward too.

He wasn't even among favourites when the final table startted but he managed to turn everything on his side, what a great game he must have played. Now he has a lot of time to decide on what to do with the prize.
