    Congratulations !!!!!

    Now savor the moment of cashing in the main event for a short while and then give your body the long awaited crash that it deserves.

    I say you leave 10k behind, pre-reg for next year and go and blow the other 40k on whatever you fancy! Be proud, feel good and take Vegas for all it has tonight! You earned it :)

    Hi all....

    Thank you so much for your support once again. I'm out here in Vegas on my own and it's been really nice having you all as my 'online rail'. Just had the press talking to me and a well earned beer!

    I've kept a video diary to document my journey at the WSOP Main Event and although it's lots of me just talking, it will hopefully convey the emotion of the experience. As soon as I get it uploaded onto Youtube I'll post the link here. :)

    Love you all!

    Cheers.

    Andrew
