Great to see John Gale win his second bracelet,always good to see an Englishman do well in the WSOP and I also see Stuart Rutter come 5th.I used to watch Rutter a lot a few years ago when I was starting to learn.

This is a news, that shows, that many of old people som of them retired, try to make some statement and learn about this game, and no one is never to old to learn and make money here, some people said that the game is complex, but with some study and confidance and try after try, some day will hit, like this guy did it.
Congratulations to him, and he hope see more news from this guy/player, and with this kind of content.

Poker wins and all of us win too.

John is a good solid tournament player always unlucky when it comes to final 9 players but this time he got it in the bag way to go Thumbs Up

By the looks of it his second bracelet took only nine years to grind out. I wanna be a retired semi-pro when I hit my sixties too but the reality is that I will be broke because my pension fund will dissapear into the air by some wall street broker overnight.
