After giving him his $5000 package, Global Poker interviewed Blair, the self-identified recreational player couldn't hide the excitement of seeing his hard work and patience pay off. 

Blair said in the interview: 

"Just don’t give up... the key for me was to stay focussed and to not lose my cool when I got a bad beat. There are always other opportunities to make a comeback. I didn’t win anything for the first couple of weeks, I didn’t give up and I just played my game. When I started putting some good results together, it became very interesting. It was really exciting to slowly start moving up the leaderboard." 

His patience and dedication have indeed paid off big, he spoke about his experience playing on Global Poker:

"I love tournaments so this is fantastic... I normally just play online at Global Poker or some home games with friends so this is a great opportunity. Global Poker has been great, I have been playing there pretty consistently since July... It is really easy to get in games and lots of fun to be able to play from home against so many different players. It is really easy to cash out your winnings. Being able to use PayPal is really nice." 

Everyone at Global Poker will be following and rooting for Penta as he takes on this challenge, expect frequent updates on his progress to pop up on Global Poker's social media.
