Exit Interview with Daniel Santoro

On his run at the final table: “It was a good time. I came in short, and the cards went my way early, and I got up to the chip lead. It’s a lot of fun, but the end didn’t go so well. It was still a good time.”

On how it feels to belong to the WPT Champions Club: “It’s great, this a fun tournament. It’s fun to play with all the good players that are successful. This is one of my favorite tournaments I’ve ever played probably.”

On his final hand: “That’s how it goes. You’ve got to get in there, I think I was supposed to be in the pot. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.”
