Katikakis Made More Money Than You Yesterday

Winterlogo3If you’re not following the Borgata Winter Open over at Tao of Poker because you’re too busy catching up on your cross-generational strip poker reading and learning how to improve your chances of landing a job out of college, as well as a Costa Rican lady friend and an STD, the latest news from the A.C. is that the man with the unfortunate Greek last name outlasted 244 runners to win the $1,500 NLHE event. Boston's Konstantius “Charlie” Katikakis defeated Andre Rosskamm from New York City for the first-place bracelet and a $113,460 cash, with Rosskamm collecting $64,050 for second.

2005’s WSOP main event runner-up Steve Dannemman survived to make it to the final table but his luck ran out when he ran in to a set of fives. He collected $10,980 for finishing in eighth place.

Also joining the final table was World Poker Tour final table veteran and 2005 Borgata Poker Open $1,500 buy-in event winner, Robert “Action Bob” Hwang. A crowd favorite, Action Bob finished one ahead of the poker player no longer referred to as the Weaz and collected $18,000 for finishing seventh.

The $10,000 main event starts up this Sunday, January 29, and at stake is a 2006 Cadillac Escalade, $1 million in cash, and a $25,000 seat to the World Poker Tour’s championship event in April. Follow the action with Pauly as he live blogs this event, as well as the $2,500 NL and Lady's events going on today and tomorrow.
