“I ran good,” Meacham said in his post-win interview. “I guess it’s my tournament to have a nice little run, and things went my way at the final table. I played pretty solid, tight early on, then opened it up five, six handed. The cards just fell my way and held up in a lot of hands. It’s great. I’m very happy.”
