We here at the Hepburn Poker Championships were able to catch up with the runner up.
HPC: “How do you feel about coming in second?”Rev: “Well I went in with the best hand and felt that Bryan was going to call, and then it was all left to luck what the flop would bring. Jacks came up on the flop and turn and that was it. He played well and deserved to win.” HPC: “What was the atmosphere at this tournament like?” Rev: “Well it was tough, Fish (Gil Dueck), was flopping all over the place, his play was erratic and so it is always hard to predict, it was as if he was abducted by KGB at 6 and beaten repeatedly, that would be the only reason why he could possibly be sooo erratic and suspicious of everyone, so the key is knowing that he will over-think his hands…for obvious reasons.”
HPC: “Was there any other highlights?” Rev: “Well it was fun seeing Stalin (Andrew Bergen) commit himself on NOT EVER winning the tourney. All though he is the most experienced player, he was no man of steal on this night. In fact at one point when I took him out of the match I think I spotted a tear. Cactus Jack (Jeff Peters) looked still too rattled from last tourney, he looked like he wasn’t sure if he wanted to do anything with any hand…It was hard to watch we wanted to look away but couldn’t it was like watching a Hutterite fall of his bike, and at one point Cactus destroyed a glass of coke in anger.
There was lots of loose play and was good to take advantage of it…and like always lots of luck involved, so I am happy with being in the money second time in a row. One disappointment was Doc (Ron Sigstad) not showing up for the tournament, but clearly he knew his result would be a quick exit, so I guess I don't blame him. But there were lots of new players, Full Tilt (Wayne Meek), The Law (Steve Nelson), High Card (Dave Murray) and of course the champion Big Shoes (Bryan Mclean) ” HPC: "Thank you for this enlightening interview, good sir, we wish you more fortune in your play." Rev: "You either got it or you don't."
