A great way to win your first bracelet,and the cash is nice too.It always feels good to come back from being that short as you have more or less accepted the fact that you are out but then you slowly start to win more and more chips and you are back in it again.

Wow incredible comeback and this deserve to be in the news, because it is not every day you get to see such a comeback. About his hand he is talking about, try to remember when you had AA in texas holdem got raised and going 9 handed on the flop and you have the guts to fold this AA and you were right and another person won with a flush or something, it can makes you look either a genius or stupid for folding such a hand lol. Anyway have fun guys!

I always tend to believe it is possible to go up again even when you are really low on chips, and (although with friends at home and online for some cents...) sometimes it happens, to get that hand where you double, then being big blind and no one calling, then again a monster with two calls... and we are up again on business! Having this story to tell ending with a $286,976 prize... i would love to be his grandson!
