Rainy days on Monday…

It is just seven days away from the most needed gift from Santa Anita to its patrons…an umbrella. Inside the $2k NLHE attracted some names to the upstairs tournament room. Only 188 bought in. Lakers fan Maria Ho was originally seated at a table with Jerry Buss, Brandon Cantu and Scott Clements. Other notables: Chris Bjorin, Robert McLaughlin, Mike Katz, Barry Greenstein, Scott Montgomery, David Pham ,Chris McCormack + Big Tom D.

Tyson Marks is dominating the final day of the $550. Starting the day in ninth place with 79k he has catapulted himself into a huge chip lead. Tyson has already won a tournament here the LHE. Sara Chau, complete with cough, visited the final table again. She has all the qualities to become the new media darling. Also poker is her life at this time.

Robert III finished third to take home $14k. The winner was Jason Mercier
who usually reserves his best for european tournaments.
