So I am watching episode 8 of the 2008 WSOP main event and there is a clip where this guy Matt Vengrin is in a hand against Phil Helmuth. Quickly I recognize him as the guy in seat #1 that I near busted with QQ early on Day 1 of event #3. I blogged this here.
When I looked up his tournament record I was extremely impressed with his stats and noted he cashed twice this year in the WSOP. I can't help to wonder if I would have played the same way had I knew him. I guess ignorance sometimes is bliss.
I really had one hell of a starting table with him, Sklansky and Yang.
I have been very busy with work lately but I promise to conclude my WSOP experience soon for those interested!
