“I feel great. I always wanted to run deep in such a tournament and it feels amazing to win the biggest tournament of the year. It's my biggest achievement so far and I can't put in words how happy I am that I am that fortunate,” he told Poker Stars Blog after his win.
He said that he plans to buy a house for his family with the money, “it would increase their living quality and it would make me really happy to see that. I can now make that happen - that was my main motivation and I can't put in words how much that means to me.”
