Just a few short minutes after accomplishing what most poker players dream of - winning a World Series of Poker bracelet - Ari Engel stood in front of the assembled poker media for the customary post-tournament scrum and spoke candidly about how his confidence was low. “So many people are doing work and improving their games and you get owned a time or two from people that you thought were worse than you. I'm the kind of person to lose my confidence real easily,” Engel said. “It's kind of a relative thing. It's not like I thought that I sucked, but maybe not the same level of confidence tha
