Bodog got a chance to exchange some questions after yesterday’s newest poker champion and winner of the Bodog Poker Open III Main Event, *biffsworld.*
The 23-year-old Pennsylvania resident says he has been playing in the Bodog Poker room for about two years and during that time has won and final tabled a few smaller tournaments, but this is his biggest win.
When asked at what point he realized he might have a shot at taking down the event, he responded that “with around 25 people left [he] started really building up a good size stack and was able to pad [his] lead by putting a lot of pressure on [his] opponents.” Apparently, winning a lot of coin flips helped him out a great deal, too.
The most memorable hand of the tournament for “biffsworld” came against the player on his immediate left mid-way through the tournament. On a flop of 3-7-10 with two hearts, the other player check-raised him and he called with 4-6, thinking if he hit a straight he could potentially win a big pot or could at least take it down on the turn if a scare card hit. The Kh hit on the turn and the other player checked. “Biffsworld” bet out and was able to take down a good-sized pot.
While *Biffsworld* plays a good mix of online and live poker tournaments, he has yet to participate in a WSOP event but is mulling over the idea of heading out to Vegas for the 2009 WSOP. What he does know for sure is that he’s not gonna go crazy with the $40,282.50 he received for winning the BPO3 Main Event, but he will probably do a little traveling.Maybe to Vegas this summer? Who knows.
Congratulations once again to *Biffsworld* and don’t forget to check out Bodog’s value-packed lineup of poker promotions and the full schedule of online poker tournaments…..at Bodog Poker
