Speaking about the tournament, he said, “The Flash win is the first major score of my lifetime. In this tournament you are bound to take chances with your cards. I tried to move my chips when I was ahead and got lucky at instances where in other hands I had a great run. I will try to be in the poker circuit as much as possible and I want to be a tourney specialist in future. I like to play cash games, but tournaments are the way to go forward for me.”
