Haynes was set to start work this Saturday as a dealer in the World Series of Poker.

“I will not continue being a WSOP dealer at this point, but I am an Aria dealer and I will continue to deal there.”

He added: “One of the things that really jumped out at me was that an Aria dealer has won two years in a row. There’s a lot of incredible players there and I watch them and just pick up little bits here and there and over time you just become better. I feel like they were very instrumental in my play today. That’s why I’m thankful for my job and the players there.”

Haynes played the event with a little blue dog bone necklace that says “Rudy”

“He was one of the biggest things in my life, so I brought his tag with me for good luck.”
