December of 2018 was hot and heavy with poker action, culminating with the final table of Super High Roller Bowl V at the PokerGO Studio. Just a few days prior to Isaac Haxton’s epic victory, it was Dylan Linde who put a bow on his career as a poker professional by taking down the World Poker Tour Five Diamond Poker Classic for $1.6 million. During the heads-up battle for the trophy, Linde made the biggest bluff of his poker career versus Milos Skrbic and in the video above he analyzes his play.

Coming into the World Poker Tour Five Diamond Poker Classic, Linde had been a successful tournament pro without a major career-defining win. Many close calls, including an eighth-place finish in the 2015 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event, had left Linde wanting more, and deservedly so.

On the Heads Up with Remko Podcast from last week, Linde talks about the long road he traveled to get to the top, and all the sacrifices he made to make to stay there. The Coeur D’Alene, ID native credits his friendships with EPT winner Kevin MacPhee, WSOP bracelet winner Elio Fox and U.S. Poker Open Champion Stephen Chidwick with a lot of his success. Listen to that podcast in the player below for the full story.
