Interestingly, he is proving to be a limit Omaha wizard, he has won all his WSOP bracelets in limit Omaha.
“Well if you don’t know, there’s only one person who has three limit Omaha eight bracelets and you’re talking to him. So until someone passes me or catches me, I’m not going to say nothing. I’m just going to leave it right there,” he said.
He dedicated his victory to his grandson.
