If you’re wondering where the really big names in poker are as the Borgata Winter Open continues, they’re down under at the Aussie Millions in Melbourne.
Guys like Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius, Chris ‘Jesus’ Ferguson and Erick Lindgren were in the mix this year for what is billed as the second richest poker tournament in the world and a $2 million first prize.
And the winner is … David Gorr, a 68-year-old Australian who finally scored his first major tournament win.
The final hand saw Gorr win the tournament with two pair after his kc-4c outstayed England’s David Keys’ 7c-3c and he became the third Australian winner in a row of the Aussie Millions Main Event, according to SBR Forum.
The computer analyst also tells the Sydney Morning Herald, “I will be at work during the day as it would be silly for me not to pop in tomorrow,’” he said. “I haven’t missed a day of work since 1976.”
The moral here is even though pros like Vanessa Selbst and Steve Dannenmann have been spotted at The Borgata, it’s anyone’s game.
And some people just don’t know how to relax.
