Speaking to GutshotMagazine.com, msv77 said, “Overall a surreal tournament experience. Apart from the winnings, the plethora of learnings taken across various tables through tons of hands was invaluable. It wasn't a smooth ride by any means, especially the final table. Loads of good players. One of the key hands was being able to trap the chip leader with a flopped boat of Tens full of Aces when he rivered his 'nut' straight.”
