Dave on the other hand, is writing a chapter in Playground’s history books. Not only did he just win the $2,651 1st prize money, after besting 112 players, but he is also taking home his THIRD World Cup of Cards trophy!

Dave is shown below, showing 3 fingers, a jolly reference to his trifecta achievement.
