ClubWPT Qualifier Stephen Galvin

Level 5: 150-300, 50 ante

ClubWPT Stephen Galvin
Stephen Galvin is seated in this $10,000 buy-in event, but he didn't pay $10,000. Galvin won his entry into the WPT L.A. Poker Classic by playing on ClubWPT.com.

Galvin is a 50-year-old Travel Trip Advisor playing in his first World Poker Tour event. But he's been playing poker since he was a teenager, and playing on ClubWPT for more than a year. He's cashed twice before on ClubWPT before winning his seat in this event.

In his first major tournament against some of the best players in the world, Galvin plans to "stay relaxed, be patient, go with the flow, and not let this big moment get to me and stress me out. I am going to have fun and enjoy this moment. ... This is one of my dreams, playing in a big tournament."
