Holy crap I won

Wow I run good. Wow. Wow. Wow. I'll write more about the final table later after I've slept or something. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for all the kind wishes and support. I'll try to thank everyone personally later but I have flight back to Toronto in 5 hours and I haven't slept yet. Just so sick it played out like it was scripted or something. It's like how you dream it would play out but that's never supposed to be how it actually happens. So crazy.

Great job man....I think you have one of the two or three interesting personal poker blogs that's out there, so it's cool to see you win, blogging about it. Don't stop blogging though, haha.

PS - would love to hear the thought process behind the Phan hand. Just a standard move, or more to it? Must be hard to sit there getting stared down for 15 mins...

Awesome, So nice to see the solid players who you really deserve it win.

The odd spewtard has won without any class. You are a class act, Always willing to give back, answer hands and give thoughtful insight to fellow poker addicts (from Canada) playing lower buy ins than yourself.

The 10 10 hand was justice.Pure Justice. From a stars 109 fo player..THANK YOU!
