The 2 Reasons

Moreno mentioned that he politely rejected the ‘chop’ when they were 4 handed. He turned down the offer again when they were 3 handed. When the opponent proposed a chop in the heads up, Moreno declined. Moreno said that the opponent offered him more money even when he was out chipped 12 million to Moreno’s 8 million. Moreno explained that he did this because of two main reasons.

The first reason Moreno thought was he had an edge and the second reason he explained was to have an experience of the final table, which is more valuable to him. There are times when people just wait for a chop, especially in the bigger tournaments. Moreno further clarified that he has seen these people getting nervous and confused due to their inexperience when they reach the final table. These people prioritize chopping over the game experience, that is the reason why he values the final table experience.

He also explained that the real money is in the final 3 or 4 places and it can cost you in the long run if you have no experience of the final table. Moreno said that people without the experience just prioritize money but he would suggest the final table experience as well.


Why does Moreno enjoy Wynn Millions?

Moreno finished with a 3 handed deal at Wynn Million 2021 final table. This seems like a wise decision as he was the short stack at the time and millions were on the line. Moreno finished with a 7 figure victory. He welcomed his first child into the world within a few months after the victory. He was so excited and said that all of this feels like a dream to him. Moreno explained that he started his career at the Wynn when they had $3 chips for the $-$3 no-limit game.

He further added that he likes everything hand-by-hand. Moreno mentioned that he just concentrates on what is happening right in front of him. As the tournament progresses, more and more things are there to distract you like bubbles or pay jumps but he tries to focus on every single hand, Moreno added.
