This gentleman has now entered the world of immortality in poker. He is a person who is part of a very, very small group of players, less than 50 because there have been multiple champions of the World Series main event. And this person had one of the most dominating performances in a World Series main event probably since 2006 and Jamie gold. He was the chip leader not going into the final table, but on multiple days at the end of day 5 he was a chip leader at the end of day 6. He was 5th and chips going into the main event final table, chip leader with 20 left to go. He was a chip leader and did not give it up until they got to heads up. But ended up taking the World Series main event crown. The $8 million. And of course, most importantly, that bracelet, welcome to the show, the new champion, 2021 cry aldera. Congratulations cry.

I mean, everyone says it's a surreal moment, but have you come down a little bit from that incredible high of this is the dream. This is the dream of every poker player every player who ever comes to the World Series and plays on there. If you're watching on YouTube, you can see it, the mother ship right behind us, the final table. Not only getting to that table, but getting to it at a main event and then winning and then holding that bracelet over this pile of money as it kind of, have you come down a little bit more is it still, you're just riding high because it's just incredible dream. I mean, it has calmed down a little bit. It's been like ten days or.
