doubletop777 you should try if you have time or opportunity to get to the Czech Republic at Prague. If your family agrees with this you will have to try because the city is beautiful and you will have the chance to play a live tournament for your dream. Good Luck with that and congratulations for this french player.

yeah really nice payday for mr. sow- three quarters of a million dollaros is some money, nice to see the reaction from is so humble. dude didn't lose his head and will most likely have no problems with the decision how to handle this money properly.
I watched the final table in online mode on YouTube .... it was interesting .... Jason Wheeler in the middle of the Wins at the final table behaved incorrectly and almost began to offend Kalidou Sov when he won him a lot of chips .... so I was ill for Kalidou Sov .... and in the end he easily beat in the hands up

After that big win, he will return back to the 150$ dailies he is claiming. Buy ins that some will never reach in their whole life And the most important thing is, that they characterize him as a recreational player.

What a great achievement! Gigantic congratulations go out to French poker player Kalidou Sow on winning the 2017 PokerStars Championship tournament. I will be sure to watch the replay of the final table on YouTube.
I've watched this tournament live at Pokerstars TV. A great experience. Kalidou Sow was very lucky at the last 2 tables. Remember him busting a guy with a straight flush against Aces when about 10 people were left. I think it was one of a key hands for him. Congratulations !

it seems to me that if there is no luck, then there is no victory ... of course, the skill of the game is a very big factor of victory, but if there is no luck, no matter how good you are, there will not be a winning player .... Of course in long tournaments the factor of luck is not very important

No matter how good you are i dont think it is easy to win such a tournament, without being lucky. With so many good players in each time it is hard to finish first. And that hand you are mentioning with straight flush was a lucky one You dont see many hands like that in live tournaments.
