“I wish I could say I took home the title in Velden, but the experience itself was a win for sure,” recalls O’Keefe who won his way to Austria . “We all made day two, which is always tough and a plus for any poker player. The big buy-in and long structure always bring around the better players, so just making it that far was quite an accomplishment. I was a bit jealous the others hit the beach without me!”
