Borgota Poker Open Summer Seniors 2014

Woke up, got out of bed…… Surfing PokerAtlas and saw the Borgata Seniors is tomorrow. Quick check of my comps and I see I can get a free room, so off to AC.

 

So a day at relaxing by the pool and poker on Tuesday.

Chipped up early with some gig flops on the BB. Was chip leader for about the first 7 or 8 levels and had 3 to4x average for a lot of the tourney.

With about 35 left, out of 137 total I got moved to a table with a young man who was obviously not 50+. I doubt his mom was 50. Typical 20 something, multi-tabling on his tablet and raising constantly.

We got to the final table around 9 pm, 11 hours after the start. Played for 4 more hours before busting out 3rd for a pretty nice cash.

It was a tough final table with most of players having some great recent results.

Larry Ohalloran was coming off 3 straight victories according to the Hendon Mob

Sam Keyrouze won the event in November 2013.

Borgata Poker Open Spring Seniors 2014

I’m writing this several months after the fact and remember very little of the tournament. I had an uneventful tournament and went out pretty early.

Played 2 $140 daily’s for a min cash and a bubble.

Saw James Woods at the Seniors event and thought he must be in the area or be  a local. Wrong. Turns out he’s  a tournament grinder.

He has a little over $100,000 in cash’s and seems pretty active based on his Hendon Mob.
