Pure. Fucking. Happiness.

I love it. That’s the feeling we all aim to acquire. That’s the feeling of climbing and climbing and climbing and finally hitting that mountain top. “Mr. Possibilities” couldn’t be a more appropriate name for him. He won the Senior’s Event for over $6k and I need to know everything about him:

WSOP - Bernard Maiden, a 67 year-old Baltimore resident, won the $250 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em tournament and his first-ever WSOP gold circuit ring.

He’s spent the last 15 years working for the government and has been married for 30 years. He said that if he comes home early, his wife knows that he didn’t do well in the tournament, so he was happy to come home late this evening with the $6,595 first prize and the circuit ring.

He goes by Mr. Possibilities and he could not contain his excitement when won the final hand. He kept cheering several times after he won.

That’s what it’s all about. Loves the game, loves his wife, and simply could not contain his excitement after he won. Mrs. Possibilities probably had a reallllll good night once he got home, know what I’m saying? (Sex).

Honestly, the feeling of winning a poker tournament is awesome. It just feels good to know you beat out every single other person who signed up with the same goal. I haven’t won one since the online days, and thankfully I’m hopping back online soon on Bet MGM. YOU can win a poker tournament there as well and feel the same way he felt. Details? You got em:

Also, check out the latest episode of Cracking Aces where we talk all about the biggest scandal in recent poker- the Mike P cheating scandal. SVP even talked about it on ESPN, it’s an absolutely crazy story. This episode breaks it all down and we even got into the top 10 in the Leisure category because of it, which was pretty cool. No bias, I fully believe Cracking Aces is the best poker podcast out there and if you have interest in poker. We give tips on how to get better and have interviews with the biggest names and top pros in the business in a laid back way. It’s not too nerdy, it’s for casual players who just enjoy playing with their friends, but also you get advice from one of the best players in the game (not me, but my cohost Jake Toole).
