“I had a rough week; I was playing [earlier in the series]; i ran so deep in the Monster Stack and the Crazy Eights, top 20’s and that, and I had one of my good friends pass away ten days ago so I had to fly home for a day. I come back.. and it’s a dream come true.”

Moreno then hit the nut flush to claim the victory, while Martin Lesjoe collected $326,314 for his runner-up finish.
