Great player. Better ambassador for the sport. This is well deserved.

Two key things in the little video at the bottom of the page struck me...

1. When asked how he did it his answer..."Mostly I just played solid. Tight."

2. Again with the being in position for lightning/luck/fate--whatever you want to call it to wink at you and throw you it's blessings is the key. He shoves QQ into AA and binks a Q. You simple are not going to have a super deep run,much less win a MTT,without getting a couple of those or more along the way. The skill is in not making a habit of needing a lot of help like that and being consistent enough to get in a spot where if it does happen you get a big reward for it.

Even as great as Randy is he needs to bink here and there as well.

I looked at the chip counts yesterday before the final 9 (i think it was 9) began play and Mr. Lew was 9 of 9.

Way to fight for it nanonoko.

Good stuff he is good for the game. Always thought he only played cash games. For the amount off time and effort he puts in he deserves it.

Certainly a well deserved win. And has already been said -- a little run good at the right time is always needed for a big win.

Mega kudos to Randy.

What galls me, when all the hoopla is done, is that Randy and other honorable folks are not allowed to play on line in their own nation. Just something to ponder.

Congrats, Randy! Good to see a PokerStars legend take it all down.

Fillmore, am I missing something? Randy lives in Vancouver, Canada and Canucks are allowed to play online. In his home province of British Columbia, he can even play on the provincial poker site. But let's not lose him from Stars. He is a great ambassador.

Another Stars Pro, Daniel Negreanu recently returned to Toronto to get back into cash games on Stars.

Either this clarifies a misunderstanding or there is something about Randy Lew that I don't know - and would welcome any insights.

As for US players not being able to play online - I miss all of you and hope to see you back on Stars tables real soon.

I watched his tweets until he made FT and was short. To see him win this and a cash player do it is awesome.

Gidee Up!

Randy Lew is 100% American. Happy for him and his win. Kudos man, you certainly had the big one coming at some point!

Have to admit I am really jealous of Randy though. Moving to Canada, playing on Pokerstars every day, and traveling to Macau(gambling capital of world) to play poker!!!!

Thanks for the updates, Dan and Rocker. Smart move on his part. I dream of some day having the bankroll necessary to sit down with him at just one of his tables.

Thanks everyone for the warm congratulations! Always great to know that there are people rooting for me around the world! For the user who spoke about needing some luck, it is true, you do need a little bit of luck to win a big tournament like this. The key is to play your A-Game and in the long-run hope that your +ev decisions payoff compared to other players decision. It's likely why you don't see the same player winning every single tournament they enter. There was actually only one time throughout the tournament that I can recall in which I got it all-in in very bad shape and that was when I was very short w/ QQ vs AA at the final table. That is the good thing about deepstack tournaments. You don't need to get it in all-in as often. Regardless, I thought I played very well and did not make any huge mistakes and as soon as I doubled up w/ QQ vs AA. I played my game which I think is solid and by solid, I mean making decisions I felt were optimal or better than my opponents.

Thanks again!
Randy Lew
