This was the first WSOP tournament Veckey had ever entered.  He intended to play in the previous No-Limit Hold'em tournament (Event #51).  But it was sold out.  He decided to play in this event instead.

"I said to myself - I want to cash.  That's it.  Just make it past the first day.  I am going to make it to Day Two, so I can cash.  But then I saw I had a chance to win the gold bracelet," Veckey said.
