First Five With 2012 World Series of Poker Bracelet Winner Chris Tryba

First Five With 2012 World Series of Poker Bracelet Winner Chris Tryba 0001

On a day when Phil Ivey was grabbing all the headlines for making his fifth final table, it was Massachusetts native Chris Tryba who came out on top, winning his first WSOP bracelet in Event #35: $2,500 Mixed Hold’em. Tryba’s a true grinder who plays all over, including the East Coast and travels the WSOP Circuit as well. He’ll be taking home $210,107 for the win.

What was your first thought after winning?

F**k yeah!

Who’s the first person you’re going to call?

My mom.

What’s the first thing you’re going to buy?

Nothing, I just bought a house.

What was the first turning point at the final table?

In the limit round, I was able to get a lot of chips.

What’s the first thing you’re going do tonight to celebrate?

We’re going to go out to eat. His rail mentioned Fogo de Chao as a possible destination.
