Wrapping Up

Here are a couple of quick items that need finishing up.

Our Goodbye Girl

Our Goodbye Girl

The World Series of Poker Circuit Events at Harrah’s Resort championship event, a $1,500 + $100 No Limit tournament played Dec. 10, drew 618 entries, the most ever for Harrah’s for the circuit championship in the eight years the casino has been holding the event.

That’s up 75 percent over last year’s main event, which drew 352 players.

The 2011 winner was amateur Taun Phan, of Vienna, Va., who takes home $188,830.

The Borgata’s Saturday series, a $350 + $50 No Limit game with a $100,000 prize-pool guarantee, that was also played Dec. 10, actually outdrew the circuit championship with 656 players and a total buy-in of $229,600.

The winner was another amateur, Lok Chhantyal, of Harrisburg, Pa., who wins $53,472.

And that’s about it for The Real Deal.

It’s been fun while it lasted (and a little frustrating dealing with tight-lipped casino public relations people), but I hope I helped some grinders enjoy their A.C. experience a little more.

I know it’s a game of skill, but I wish you all good luck. It never hurts.

The Poker Atlas will probably keep functioning, but as for The Real Deal, well, this is the end.

    Boooo!!! I loved this place for checking Bad Beat hits and the other poker info.

    It’s crazy that AC casinos act like their keeping state secrets and are so tight lipped. Go ahead and stay silent as poker rooms in PA, DE and CT continue to steal your players.

    Dear Real Deal, thanks for your time and effort for keeping this alive as long you did. This blog will be missed by all the grinders I know that hit the AC poker rooms weekly.
