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.
The second young man was first out ITM for a min cash. Several people at the table rode him hard. Why anyone enters an event they are not eligible for is beyond me. It disrespects the game and all the players. Karma will get even.
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.
