Carlos Welch is a player, writer, and coach spending much of his time living out of Prius. Carlos recently won his first WSOP Bracelet, besting a field of 782 entries in the Crazy Eights ONLINE event for $124,369. He plans on using part of the money to buy a house for his mom in George to serve as the central location for when the Welch family gathers. Carlos shares some tips on being frugal in Vegas during the WSOP and just brings a general positivity to the poker world. Connect with Carlos on Twitter @hiphop101trivia.
