December 11, 2017
The final tournament on the 2017 Bar Poker Open schedule started at 6:00 pm and was completed shortly before 2:00 am. The $100+$20 Super Stack Semi-Turbo No Limit Hold’em drew 173 entrants creating a $16,781 prize pool to easily surpass the $10,000 guarantee.
Some notables to finish in the money were Basil Congro, who scored his third cash of the series by finishing in 16th. Benny Braun who came in $252 falling short of his goal of winning his first tournament. James Fairneny who finished second in Event 5 ($3,614) also cashed in Event 10 taking home $294 for his efforts.
After the hysteria of the Bar Poker Open National Championship Final Table died down, the Signature Room was the quietest it’s been all weekend. Randie Klein was eliminated in 11th place, and only ten players remained. Before a single final table hand was dealt all ten players agreed on an adjusted payout structure with Terry Glover taking the trophy.
Glover hailing from Virginia Beach, VA represents Kings and Queens Poker League. “It was a good tournament, I got lucky a few times. I just took my time and played my game” This was Glover’s first cash of the series, and first time being to Borgata.
Glover says he learned a lot from Daniel Burns, the owner of the Kings and Queens Poker League. He also says the league is the reason he’s here and he’s very appreciative of the opportunity.
