“Last year, I had the Main Event cash and made it to Day 5, where they put me on the secondary feature table. That got my nerves. I had Greg Raymer on my left and a couple other guys. So, just having that exposure and having that time in a game that I’m extremely comfortable with helped a lot.” — Gamble, on handling the pressure of the final table.
