Bob the Blade?

$3300 + $200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH

Bobby Oboodi wins three straight hands and four of the last six. His rowdy supporters continue to chant something along the lines of, "Bob the Blade, Bob the Blade, Bob the Blade!"

Other suggested translations include, "Bob the Bling," "prob-a-bly," and "Bobby Flay."

Oboodi is still second in chips, but is less than one million behind Fred Goldberg as players are on a 10 minute tv break.

As the WPT crew make a few tweaks for the broadcast, we confirm that the chant is in fact
"Bob the Blade," and his rail birds are known as the Morris County Crew (MCC). Joe Gossweiler admits he's the ringleader and the New Jersey group includes WSOP bracelet holder Allen Bari who is not in the audience.
