Default Brag: 3rd at WSOP Circuit Event #1 New Orleans

Ran well obv, only lost one hand when ahead, sucked out twice when pushed short stack (KQs > KK and 33 > 10). Pushbotted short stack throughout final table while 7 larger stacks got knocked out.

$300+40 = $8600.

Beat: after they brought out the ring, I didn't really care about teh money but wanted to win. Unfortunately couldn't get any traction.

Each event winner gets a ring.

Fairly solid brag, I think a ring would be pretty tight and I"m sure the 8 g's smells sweet.

He only got one card? That's a bit unfair.

Solid brag though.

I actually met a guy at Winstar once who had a ring. It was actually pretty sweet. I'd be much more likely to where the ring in my daily life than a bracelet, (even though winning a bracelet is WAY more balla obv.)
