Tony spends a few minutes with Gloria Balding as she says this tournament is one of the easiest tournaments ever and Tony agrees by saying that he’s the best player there *note the laughter in the background* as Tony continues. He just put his shares up on ChipMeUp and they are sold out already. He’s trying hard, he hasn’t cashed yet at the World Series but he has won a tournament in the last week. He’s doing well, and having a good year, and he feels good about the $10K PLO Hi/Low tournament that continues again today.
He says he’s doing his best with his limited abilities, just plugging away and if he doesn’t final table in this event, it will probably be his last event until perhaps the Main Event.
He talks about the balance of poker and life and being able to step away from it for awhile to bring it back into the right focus.
He’s also sweating the Aussie Rules Football game and has sportsbets on it as he plays poker. He used to play the game as a kid.
He made a 100k bet with Phil Ivey on this game and talks about his last crazy bet with Tom Dwan in the Deuce to 7 Lowball Draw tournament.
He’s looking at houses in Las Vegas since he plans on buying a house in the area and says he’s in Patrick’s house right now and it was incorrectly reported that he was going to buy it, he’s still looking.
Away from the camera, Tony reports that he’s super motivated to do well in this event and he really enjoys the game and has done well in it over the years.
