2010 WSOP: Brandon Steven is very disappointed with his 10th place in the Main Event

7,319 players signed up for the 2010 WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas. Brandon Steven, car dealer and father of 5 from Wichita, Kansas, went out on 10th place after 8 days of poker. In other words, he was very, very close of making it to the final table and being guaranteed at least $810k with the chance of winning the first place prize of almost $9 million dollars and getting the world champion title.

Even though Brandon Steven didn't make it all the way to the final table, he still received $635k and should be quite happy with his results, or? Well, according to what he said in an interview with ESPN, it doesn't seem that way. 

"It's good money, but I make a good living from other incomes already. I'm looking for challenges. I really need a big win. It's not about the money." said Brandon Steven in an interview with the TV channel ESPN.

Can't sleep at night
"Damn it, it hit my sometimes and I can't sleep at night since that day when I got knocked out of the Main Event. I was so close to $9 million and becoming a champ."

Good performance.Looks like there are people with higher goals.For him only being at the final table would have been a real performance.Better luck next time!

Its really funny funny, hahahahahaa. So the guy doesnt care about the money but he cant sleep thinking that he lost 9 million hahahahahaah.

Of course its about the money and not the new challenge and of course he is really frustated, BUT ITS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY.

it could be very disappointing to be the bubbleboy on WSOP, but saying that was very very close to 9 million is not the good one - what stack would he had if he had finished 9th? And what stack Duhamel has now? If he finished 9th, he would have been preparing for four months on his biggest carreer final and then he will push in the second hand, which vould be called with AA and Steven would go home Smile
