Do you feel the game has fully recovered from that blow?A: What the WPT has done is recognize that poker will probably never be the same as in the Internet heyday. It used to be that our cheapest buy in event was $5,000, and that was in Reno. Now, we have buy ins that are $3,500, $1,500 we have a $15,000 championship buy in instead of the previous $25,000. At Aria, we had a $500 tournament that was very successful. The WPT decided to make poker more economically feasible. It was a very big decision for the tour to take, but it has worked out.Q: Daniel Colman, 23, recently caused a buzz in the poker community.

Mike Matusow, who won it the year before, finished third. And Daniel and I played heads up more than 7 hours for the title. So it was a proud accomplishment for me.A: You know what's interesting?
