He's exactly the kind of guy who would look like a Rocco - wrinkled face, slicked back grayish hair. Probably in his early to late 60s. He's a solid player from what I've seen at 5/10, but I've also really only seen him play his own cards - that kind of style just can't make him one of the biggest winners.

really loud and obnoxious, wears a lot of jewelry, talks about how much money he wins, greasy italian guy? super weak-tight and always calls out people hands (which is always the nuts) and talks about how good his folds are? i've seen him wear a michael vick jersey twice in the maybe 5 times i've seen him. same guy?

Re: Best 10-25 NL Player at Borgata?

why are you guys beating on rocco? I have never seen him angle shoot, he is a pleasure to talk to while I sit there and fold all day long like all the nits since there is ZERO. READ ZERO. [censored] ACTION AT BORGATA. Get rocco to your left, it becomes the new nl game where you get the button twice a round. he [censored] runs the floor too, I've been there and not had a poker rate room at borg., he found a way to hook me up with the right floor guy.


if you want to talk about angle shooting, you should talk about that [censored] sean. he was playing 5/10 last year, and went from 5/10 to 50/100 in like a month, it was [censored] sick, they were all talking about how sick he ran. Anyway, i forget action, but river goes down how ever, all the money goes in, sean has nothing, trying to bluff some old nit off AA or something, the guy ssays something under his breath that the table can't hear, so sean says, oh did you say call? well i have a straight. the guy flips saying he didnt say call and he was thinking, and sean starts arguing about how he said call, but not in an active kinda way, the guy instamucks his hand and sean [censored] has this [censored] eating grin on his face and very casually shows his buddy nothing but no one else at the table, and instamucks as well, obv. it's borgata so the dealer misses all of us this, pretty big pot for 5/10 too. a [censored] dbag i tell you.

in my limited experiences there the borgata regulars are generally uncreative, boring, nits. rocco is a huge nit who misses value bets like its his job. that big guy with the red hair they call red is a solid/standard player from what i can see. i have more respect for a lot of the crazy commerce players because a) they are more fun to play with and b) they have fun and are more creative.
What do you mean by uncreative?

Re: Best 10-25 NL Player at Borgata?

based on my limited experience with some of the players the two that stick out in my mind are troy and phillies hat mike. I think troy is probably the best player in the game but I haven't played with everybody enough give a very informed opinion. I agree with this:

Quote:
I vote that Troy is the best player at the 10-25 table. He has amazing reads. He is constantly a winner at the table no matter his opponents.

Re: Best 10-25 NL Player at Borgata?

AZK,

You don't know Rocco very well. He is the biggest angle shooter at Borgata. He would run the time pots. I seen it when a fish would win and he would not ask for time from the fish, waiting for a skill player to win and then ask for the time pot.

Who is this sean guy? Can you describe him?

Usually has goatee, Brownish/redish hair with some freckles, probably about 5-10, not skinny but not fat, usually wears a hat and sunglasses, early to mid 30's. Looks a little bit like a badass but is actually a nice guy with a fun / sarcastic personality (he might come off as an a-hole to some). I think he actually lives in Maryland or something and comutes to AC every week. You might have played with him at the bellagio this summer also because he made several trips.

Re: Best 10-25 NL Player at Borgata?

5'11" - 6'1" easy 200+ seems like he has a lot of muscle and fat, i think he has gained weight in the last year, he was at wpt borgata carrying over 4 racks of black to the 50/1 game. He used to paly 5/10, plays the 10-25 also, buys in big now, was on the tour for a little I heard from some local, normally hair combed forward with some gel, that's about all i got.

Re: Best 10-25 NL Player at Borgata?

I guess I don't mind roccos 'angle shooting' since it is so insignificant to me that I think "who cares". I mean so rocco adds greens into a capped 5/10 game, big [censored] deal. Like they will ever get into play.

Rocco comes across as a nice guy at first but is in fact an a-hole. I saw him get into a huge fight with a black dealer and wanted to go out into the parking lot and fight. The dealer just kindof laughed at him. The dealer messed something up but Rocco was totally out of line.

Re: Best 10-25 NL Player at Borgata?

lol . . . last time I was at the Borg, Rocco pulled the same sh*t at my table . . . demanding to change seats when the table was full and there was no open seat, and then taking his chair from his seat - seat 8 - and cramming it and his chips in between seats 3 and 4 . . . when I told him that he was out of line and couldn't just invent a seat, he said the same thing: wanted to go out in the parking lot and fight me. Security came but didnt escort either of us out. The floor told me they would make a written report of it, but I don't know if that happened.

Re: Best 10-25 NL Player at Borgata?

If, by "handle" you mean "fondle," I'm sure he can and has . . . I know he comes damn close to a mandatory fight under Haralabos Voulgaris' 50 50 rule . . .

Re: Best 10-25 NL Player at Borgata?

okay, enough about Rocco. We all know that he's an angle shoot and a nit.

Now, who's the best player? So far people have said Troy, Mike, and Sean. Although I still don't know who Sean is.

I still would put Boris and Wayne in the top five. Who else would you put in the top five. Here is my list.

1. Troy
2. Jason
3. Boris
4. Wayne
5. Mike

Re: Best 10-25 NL Player at Borgata?

fwiw, i am pretty sure i would not want to [censored] with rocco, parking lot or not. He has the look of someone connected deep, with god knows what, but i would not want to [censored] with him. Mike is a nit, so stfu, and get him out of the line up...duck, mikech, and me have plenty of stories, so enough already.

why the [censored] do you care in the first place?

Re: Best 10-25 NL Player at Borgata?

Troy is the best I've played against in that game. I would agree that among other leaks, Mike doesn't know how to lay down often enough.

Rocco is hideous.

same elmo who plays in the trop 5/10 twice a month? he's a breakeven player, a very marginal winner at best.

Re: Best 10-25 NL Player at Borgata?

the game was on saturday and the guy that put in 7,000 is an older man who probably figured Boris was making another move because that's what Boris' reputation is
