Hevad Khan busts out of Day 7 of Event 55, World Championship No-Limit Texas Hold'em at the 2007 WSOP

This (almost) famous sit-n-go multi-tabler has busted out of the Main Event in 6th place. We caught up with him just as he was escaping the clutches of the media, and had him feed us some words.

So why don't you tell me what's going on - you just won a lot of money!

I'm ecstatic. All my friends are with me, I gave it my best shot. You know, I played it the best I could - they're all great people. They're giving their hardest too, it's not like I'm the only one here. Every single one of them gave their heart and soul.

I did my best to adapt and I'm glad for my finish. I could have gotten seventh, could have gotten eighth, could have gotten ninth, but I got sixth, you know? I deserve more than - I mean, I got more than I deserve.

Did you play the same way today than you do when you play, say, 26, 46 sit-n-gos?

Absolutely. Well, those I play a little bit tighter cause I don't have enough time to really spread out my decisions. But, I was able to play just as well as I did three months ago when I started playing tournaments professionally online.

So I'm ecstatic, I'm thrilled, I'm just happy I was able to give it my full shot.

Alex Kravchenko. Let's hope the Russian can hold on!
