The 2005 Borgata Poker Open

I am in Atlantic City this week playing in satellites for the World Poker Tour (WPT) Borgata Poker Open.

I won a Stage I Satellite which was a $50 buy in, 99 people, where they gave away 8 seats to a Stage II Satellite. I finished 3rd and won one of those 8 seats.

The big play came when we were down to two tables, I got pocket Kings and re-rasie all-in for about T8,000 someone calls with pocket Queens and the original bettor calls with pocket Jacks. My Kings held up and I tripled up. The very next hand I got pocket Queens, I raise, someone goes all -in for just a few thousand more with Ace Jack. I call and they hold up again. I sitting with T36,000 with 13 people left. Its an easy coast into the money.

I play tomorrow in the Stage II satellite which is a $500 buy in satellite, where they give away one seat for the WPT Borgata Poker Open, $10,000 main event for every 20 people in the satellite. I expect about 200 people which means about 10 seats.

Wish me luck!

We will resume our normal Friday night tournament next Friday, September 23rd.
