Congratulations to the winner!

P.S.: At first, when I read the name Nguyen, I thought it was Scotty Nguyen. Big Smile Big Smile

Many congratulations to Jeffrey Smith for winning his first bracelet and taking down a first prize of $323,125. He bested a field of over 1900 players so he thoroughly deserves his winnings

Cheers yeah grats to him for beating a huge field and a bit sad about Nguyen not winning, but you know , pros cannot win all hands, anyway on his name it is so generic that we can think that it might be a fake lol. Anyway congratulations to him. Hope the tournaments get more winners, so far I heard about a lot of pro players and not much new players coming in!

Congratulations to the winner, that was a pretty fierce heads up battle if you ask me Smile
I guess that on the final hand even if he did not had luck and take the hand down, he could not be disappointed since he had the better hand preflop.

The heads up battle is a lot about luck.

You can´t wait for good spots and good hands anymore, you have to play 80% of hand, so your edge is lower.
