80 Players Remain

WPT BORGATA POKER OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP

Down to ~80 players now.

Mike Sexton

Mike Sexton took a pot from Dwyte Pilgrim with pocket Jacks. Dwyte didn't show his hand, but claims he held pocket Tens. Mike is up to ~800k while Dwyte dropped to ~480k.

Olivier Busquet is up to about 1 million, putting him second in chips to Giuseppe Pantaleo, with 1.2 million.

Table 7 has become the center of the WPT universe with the cameras constantly hovering. Chip leader Giuseppe Pantaleo, Dwyte Pilgrim, Andrew Badecker, John D'Agostino, Rebecca Gennett, (last woman sitting) and Mike Sexton are all sharing that piece of felt.

Mike 'Little Man' Sica

Mike 'Little Man' Sica utters his classic "Start the car!" after putting his chips all-in. His opponent says "You just gave your hand away, I have to fold". Mike replied "If you fold, I can't lose!" as he collected the pot.

I believe Mike Sica, Mike Sexton, and Jeffrey Papola are the only WSOP bracelet holders still in.

Olivier Busquet and Jonathan Little are the only two WPT title holders still alive.
