Faro was overwhelmed at winning and posted his feelings about the win on Twitter. A regular on the live WSOP Circuit, Faro took a break to start a business and spend more time with family.

Last year, Faro returned to poker and made it a goal to take the game more seriously. He was pleased to see everything come together on Sept. 21 for the title.

“To me, (winning a bracelet) meant more to me than any amount of money,” he noted. “It made all the work I put in worth it. I proved to myself that I belonged and that I’m capable. I haven’t slept yet and part of me still doesn’t believe it, but we did it and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I feel like I got the money off my back.”
