In spite of the fact that 8,000 players are going to take part in the world’s largest poker tournament in Las Vegas, Sean Daulat, an air traffic controller at Winnipeg International Airport, hopes to win as much as $ 10 million thus beating his 2005 payoff – US $ 100,000. He claimed his spot in the tournament by winning an online tournament, and the entrance to it cost him $ 50.
“You don’t even have to finish first to do well,” Daulat explained. “Last year, I finished 79th and won over $100,000. If I do the same thing this year, I’ll get even more money”.
Daulat hopes to win, but he is perfectly aware that he is going to meet a lot of players who are better that him. He says that he is to be realistic, and his chances are one in eight thousand to win. Still he is better than others. In the end, everyone will agree that it’s a matter of luck.
