Poker is full of bad beats.
That said, every once in a while a story comes along that’s going to lift you up, and this is for damn sure one of them. This past weekend marked the full fledged return to the poker tables for Kevin “Phwap” Boudreau after two years when at one point he was literally fighting for his life.
You may recall that a couple years ago, Kevin was struck by a sudden crippling traumatic brain injury in the parking lot of the WSOP. Kevin fought back and with the help of his friends and family and received the care and inspiration he needed to grind out tough days of recovery.
Now Kevin’s the inspiration as this past weekend, according to Bluff Magazine, he played in the Mid-Stakes Poker Tour event in Colorado and not only did he take his seat – the kid took 5th for over $34K.
Now that’s one hell of a comeback. Congrats to Kevin (and his family).
