We didn't get started until around 3 and I busted within the first 10 hands. Not sure what's happened since but I'd imagine Aprilsfool destroyed the table and won pretty easily

They took forever getting the stage set up, the whole production was a joke.. there were no hole card cameras, lol.

From the looks of the pictures on JMLpoker.com it seems like it's down to heads up between Ed "Chris" Gamaitoni and David Gillen

GG Tremomey and King. the skullman got so coolered in 5th place - knocked out shipping KJ all in < KQ on KKxA board. and the little man got 4th place when he SB open shoved Ac8c on Tc3c3x board in 4 way limped pot preflop and was called by the BB with T3o. and i got knocked out in 3rd when i river shoved a busted straight draw into the chipleader's flopped set of 4s. not sure what happened after that. although very interesting that it they filmed it but had no hole card cams.

this was a small but great tournament with a great structure. 75 minute levels starting at 1:15PM every day is not that bad. plus, there are so many other live tournaments going on plus ftops to attract other pros that the field was diverse and beatable. although the final table did start at 3PM although they told us 1:15. so that was a waste of time. and they kept extending the breaks by 10 minutes without telling us why. so it was difficult to get a rhythm.

the taj is only a $160 90 minute cab ride from philly airport or $200 cab from newark. or if you're broke, you can take the train to philadelphia airport for $15 and there is a free shuttle from the casino to the AC rail station. unfortunately, there was an earth wind and fire concert on saturday night, so the room was $450. but on sunday just $100.

i also think it is interesting that with 3 left (the 3 youngest at the final table), we downloaded an iphone app to calculate equity for a deal, but decided to keep playing. i hope it gets more next year! if they air the final table (unlike last year), then maybe players will want to go because they have a pretty good shot at making it.

GG.. I fully agree with you on the bolded points. Hopefully it gets a bigger turnout next year. It was nice playing with you, see ya around. Here is the link to the pictures we took before the start of the final table if you don't have it-

i just remembered something funny. the taj staff removed the 100 chips, then realized that there was still 1 level of 400 ante. so they reinstated the 100s and we had to race for them twice.

I thought after Black Friday, ESPN was cutting back their tv time dedicated to poker.
