So, I was at the Exaclibur poker room the other night playing $2-$6. A young asian kid saddle up next to me and was playing a bit. I was talking to the guy on my other side about the WSOP, when y.a.k. says, "It sounds like you're playing in the WSOP." I told him that I was a writer for it, and he started to talk. He asked me if I'd interviewed Jeff Madsen yet. I said no, and then he gave me the skinny,
"I played with him in Santa Barbara at Chumash," he started. "He's very aggressive, and probably the last person that I'd expect to win a bracelet."
Well, being agressive obviously pays. To the tune of $1,401,881.
