This victory puts Zack in first place on the WSOP Player of the Year standings.“I’m really happy, much happier and I feel more energetic than the last bracelet,” an excited Zack commented. “I’ve had a lot of marathon matches heads-up. You just learn through experience to take it one hand at a time and do your best,” added Zack, crediting his success to his long nights at cash games.
