Notable Information

Being a poker pro, Asi Moshe has to travel to play tournaments, which means frequently being apart from his family. It is a sacrifice for them all, but sometimes, it pays off. Yesterday, Moshe captured his third WSOP gold bracelet.

“It really feels amazing,” he said. “Each one feels so different. This year, the travelling was really hard. I have a wife and a daughter, who is two and a half, and I love them both so very much, so being here for the summer wasn’t easy for me, and it’s not easy for them. This really makes it worth it. It’s really special for me.”

It helped to have friends supporting his run in the $1,500 NLHE Bounty, especially as he grabbed his 24th bounty of the event to claim overall victory. But he had only one message when it was all over. “I really want to say, and this is important, I really love my wife Enga and my daughter Mika. This is for them.”
