"Surreal" Experience for Estrada
It's been ten years since Francisco Estrada first discovered poker. A decade later, he says he's still grinding and playing to try and perfect his passion.
"Being a professional poker player is a goal of mine," said the 27-year-old. "I've played in WSOP events before, but the Main Event has always been on my list."

A couple of weeks ago, Estrada discovered ClubGG through PokerNews and hurriedly read through the article describing the steps players have to do in order to win a WSOP Main Event seat.
"The article was only five minutes old! I clicked on it and it told me all the steps and all the different stages. I felt it was meant for me."
And now, having battled through the stages, Estrada finally has his hands on a WSOP Main Event seat.
"Poker is one of my biggest passions and it's a huge part of my life. It feels amazing. Too surreal. I still can't wrap my head around what's going on. All the support and love has made me realize what I did.
"If I cash it's going to be for my daughter. There's so much motivation that comes into it. I'm excited about the future."
"I'm going to do a lot more studying. over the last few months I've been playing cash games here in blackhawk colarado, but next months I'm goign to study more, get more volume and more consistent. GGPoker and ClubGG you acn look at hands from previous tournaments. Going to see what hands I did and didn't play to analyse.
