On-Line Olivier, Live and in Person

On-line high-stakes heads up sit and go specialist, Olivier Busquet is still alive in the losers bracket after winning three Friday matches. After losing to September heads up champion Jesse Yaginuma in the third round of the winner's bracket, Busquet's won four in a row and is now playing Jason Lufkin in the money round, as all 6 remaining players will cash.

"It's a really different experience," says Busquet, who won Borgata's Championship Event at September's Poker Open. "I've played a million hands on-line, but maybe only 10-thousand in live action. I'm learning to trust my reads a lot more."

Busquet, who has more than one million dollars in career earnings, and countless more on-line, says that it's been a tough field of 64 at Borgata and is slightly disappointed he didn't get to play Olympic swimming gold medalist Michael Phelps in the last round.

"It would've been cool," he says. "I know he plays a lot of poker and would've been a tough match. The fact that he's an expert, I would've liked to have seen how the competition transferred to poker. Because really that's what this is, competition."

The feeling is mutual as Phelps is a big poker fan.

"I'd love to play him (sometime), I always see him on-line playing sit and goes," says the 14 time Olympic gold medalist. "The guy's very talented and knows what he's doing. I'd love to play somebody who's as talented as he is in his world, especially in this format.

Phelps lost to Basilios Diakokomninos in the double elimination format, who then lost to Busquet in the 7th round of the losers bracket.

Busquet's guaranteed to earn at least $6,208 for a 5th/6th place finish, as nearly $50,000 is up for grabs to the heads up champion. "This format is great," he says, "the fact that you're only playing a person one time, really lessens whatever edge I may have and forces me to focus and step up my game."

The PPI Perspective


By David Zeitlin, PPI Elite Player

6-Max Redux

Various factors seemed to conspire against a big turnout for the Borgata Winter Open Event #12, 6-max tournament.

As it kicked off, it was Day 2 of the Deep Stack and Seniors events.

Also, the average punter fears unknown formats, and a short handed event with re-entries is certainly foreign to most players.

So when the 6-max started, a quick glance at the 160-player field made it apparent that it was unofficially the most difficult $450 buy-in in poker history.

If you don't like being played back at, this was not the tournament for you. Dangerous characters lurked at every table. For instance, midway through this tournament, here was the lineup found at

Table #1:

Seat 1: Dave Fox
Seat 2: Chris Bonita
Seat 3: Unkown
Seat 4: Joanne Dorin
Seat 5: Adam Lippert
Seat 6: Nick Binger

That is not a favorable spot for "Unkown."

While the prize pool generated for Event #12 wasn't huge, the quality of the field added a certain insider's prestige to winning this one. There were absolutely no soft spots at the hotly contested final table, and I was disappointed to only muster a seventh place finish.

Congrats to the six terrific players who outlasted me and in particular to the final three, Taylor Shpur, Wade Woelfel and Chris "BonesMaster" Bonita, all of whom were tough as nails.

Special congrats to Taylor on his win. And a super special congrats goes out to Chris for a never-before seen achievement: briefly playing someone else's stack after the dinner break, then almost shipping the tournament for good measure!

That's a Lot of Nicknames

Event #17 $300+$50 No Limit Hold'em

There are twelve players remaining after Robert Parenti ran his Q-5 into the A-A of Vinny "onCard9" Pugliares, who goes by Vinny "onCard9" Gurriero. We're not sure what to call him.

Event #17 Payouts

There were 349 players in the $300 + $50 Event #17, creating a prize pool of $101,559. Here are the payouts.

1 $29,452
2 $17,062
3 $8,429
4 $7,109
5 $6,094
6 $5,078

Buy In: $1500 + $125

Frank Conti (Staten Island, NY) and is "no fear, aggressive" style of play is a non-factor when he's dealt J 9 . By the turn Conti has two pairs and reraises his opponent, who flat calls.

The river is the J ♣ for a full house and Conti checks. The trap works as his opponent pushes all in and Conti snap calls. "Happy Birthday to me," says Conti, as the player mucks. Conti more than doubles his 20k starting stack to 44k.
