Characy Khun must be thrilled with this victory, having also made something so unusual as being responsable for sending home all opponents he had at the final table. I can only imagine this comparing to some SnGs i've already played, in which things start well, with me elliminating the first leaving the room, and then do it again with the second one. At this point, i see myself with more than 4,500 chips while all of my opponents have only around 1,500. Once i made it with four and i happen to have more than 8,000 chips, but i never made it with all at the table. Must be a great feeling, even more at the final table of a big event with a nice reward... dream, dream, dream...
