Event 20: Thomas Triples

$3300 + $200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH  

Level 10:  Blinds are up to 400/800 with 75 antes.

Travell Thomas (Buffalo, NY) min-cashed in this event last year, finishing 97th for $6,671.  Roy Winston won this event in 2007 along with over $1.5 million.  Today, they find themselves seated together and having a good time.

They started today at opposite ends of the chip-count spectrum.  Roy was 25th out of 753 returning players, with 142k.  Travell returned with 15,500, ranking 699 out of 753.

Travell has already tripled those chips today, thanks to pocket Aces holding up against pocket Kings and pocket Queens holding up against pocket Jacks.  He's currently up to ~55k.
