“I’ve been close a few times. I feel ecstatic to be fair. Honestly. I played it last minute and the first day went pretty well coming back as chip leader. Today we just ran up a stack,” Steven Morris told pokernews.
“The first day was really tough, with a tough table. I had Steven Warburton, Tom Middleton, Michael Zhang and Dominik Nitsche. With it being a really small field it was really tough. It’s pretty sick; different to winning a package and playing a massive field.
“We talked about a deal [heads-up] but my short-stack game is pretty strong. I was pretty confident that if I could grind him down I’d be alright. Obviously, I hit the two-outer originally, but that’s the thing – you’ve got to win flips and he had his own moments. It was pretty sick,” he added.
