“Just played the game, let it come to me, feels good to close it out.” and added, “I feel it was a very good performance.”

He further added, “So whenever I am able to get chips, then I’m usually in a pretty good spot. I’m just playing the game while everybody else is paying too close of attention to the pay jumps, which is natural obviously, but I feel like that gives me the edge.”
