The man is a beast. I've had the pleasure of playing against him on the Stars $3/6 tables and he definitely lives up to his reputation as a card shark. Glad to see he is taking it to the live games as well!

Big ups 2 nanonoko . . . the most impressive aspect of this win was that he entered the final table as the shortest stack and used that grinding genius he displays in ring games to come out on top. I'm sure this will solidify his status as one of the premiere players worldwide, instead of a strict online cash game juggernaut.
