|Canadian Brian ‘WiseOne0x’ Storm will be on the way to Las Vegas for the first time to compete in the World Series Of Poker (WSOP) after winning Hollywood Poker’s qualifying event.|
The poker player will be competing in the WSOP Main Event after triumphing during the Hollywood Poker and PokerListings.com Live Like A Celebrity Freeroll.
'I couldn't be happier,' said Storm. “I was stunned about it when I first realized but it's settling in. I've mostly stayed out of the spotlight as much as I could but I think the winds are changing.'
The married father of two knocked out 58 other competitors to earn a $12,000 WSOP Main Event prize package and an entry into the Live Like A Celebrity freeroll final this week where he could win a four-day prize package to ESPN's ESPY awards.
Storm is now battling pre-event jitters and mingling with excitement for his day at the big show next month.
'I've played final tables before and the nerves are always there, waiting for the next card to drop, hitting those pockets and trying to play them for all they are worth,' he said.
'I'm definitely excited: the trip, the vacation, the chance to play some of the best for the biggest prize of all, who couldn't be excited.'
