I think this man is at the height of happiness. As he says in the article. To win in a short time two events World Poker Tour is a dream for many professionals players. This proves once again that this poker game is more science-based than on luck. Congratulations for this player with the beautiful performance.

Yes I too think that to have such good results lije this guy is super good luck. I think to ein one live poker tournament with 500 players is really hard and you need a lot of luck but to ein tep tournaments like this and in just more than one month time is super good result

Kinda, but not really. Based on my recent moviegoing experiences in today's hollywood no movie is getting greenlit unless they have enough superheroes, robots, singing princesses or Ryan Gosling written into the script. This story above had neither.
