I was very excited about the HPO coming to Penn National. I play daily’s there 3-5 times per week and hoped to take down an event in my home poker room.
Played the first event, busted out early when my AKo ran into AA. A K high flop got me in trouble. When the beating stoped i had bled off a lot of chips.
On to my second event. The Seniors. This is the one I was really shooting for and steady play and a favorable flop with KK v AA paved the way for a trophy.
Played the Bounty tournament for a 7th place cash and standing on the leaderboard.
The Hollywood Poker Open moved to St Louis which was a little to far to travel. However the next stop was Charlestown, only 1.5 hours away. I wanted another Seniors trophy.
