After winning back to back seniors events in the HPO series I was very excited to play the Columbus Hollywood Poker Open Seniors for a try at a hat trick.
The schedule came out in early/mid April and had a seniors, PLO and woman’s events. Just like all the rest of the HPO Regionals. About a week later I noticed the schedule had been changed. No Seniors. No Woman’s. No PLO.
I decided to make the 6 hour drive anyway and possibly win a seat for the HPO Main Event at the M Resort in Las Vegas.
The first event 5/16-17 was a 2 day $450 buy in. 331 runners competed over the 2 days. I made it until the second break.
Which ironically they had no trophies! Didn’t arrive in time. WTF?
Tuesday was another $235 and they paid 13. Finished 12th for a min cash.
Wednesday I played another $235, got schooled by local pro Shawn Cunix and bubbled. I was 4th on the leaderboard 4 points out of first and had decided if I cashed and got points I would continue to play.
