Confidence is for sure one of the most important feelings a player must have when he's playing, and having such a big victory as background gives a lot of confidence to Jared Jaffee battle against everyone who comes ahead, even the most known names. It's not all, but it will help him.

Jason Mercier for the win going to support him on this tournament hope he wins it, he is a good player and the only well known player on that table so well known players should win as it has been a while since some good players won. Read it as well known! Anyway hope this tournament is fun and I can enjoy some good poker after work! Cheers keep us updated!

Fakiry nailed this - this guy must be teeming with confidence, balls the size of King Kong. So many times players win a tourney and then for a few months or even a year they just get at it and nail tournaments. Reads are good, judgement refined and there's no playing scared cos they have money behind them.

This would be some achievement if he won back to back titles. I cant comprehend the odds of him doing this as they must be in the thousands to one. Good luck to him and i hope he can do it
