“I made a couple big hands, which is really what you need in this game, and it helped catapult me up, out of the danger zone.”

He added, “I like the feel of the table in limit hold'em better. It's more friendly, more cameraderie. As you saw today, there was just a lot of laughing and joking throughout the day.”
