Henry Horse worth backing at this level

Monday, March 15th, 2010

As one of two poker players I see at Santa Anita enjoying the horse racing Kaptain Henry probably appreciates better than most the class dropper. This is usually when a horse is dropped into a race of lesser value in order to win. A month ago Kaptain Henry was running in a WPT event at […]

That Zenyatta feeling

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

I originally planned to go to the Breeders Cup at Santa Anita,last November, on the Friday and watch Saturday’s racing on TV.However, Friday went so smoothly,although the racing wasn’t memorable, I was up with the birds on Saturday morning to green light my impromptu day at the races. Seeing Zenyatta win that day was one […]

Wednesday update

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

I have been avoiding any updates from Bay101 until now. I am delighted to see Vanna Tea has survived Day2. She now is in the final 27.No longer chip leader but “A million miles” from the tournies at the Bike. Everyday locals Freddie Legaspi and Toothless Nguyen made it deep into the $50k guarantee. Freddie […]

Comeback Crockett

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

I am more familiar with Steve Crockett at the Bellagio but a younger family member, Chris,started Day2 with 49k. The chip leader Phuong Tran had 295k. Chris won with Umbro track suited Tony Zoric second. Tony only started with 32k. The 65 players returned at 4pm and three hours later we had a final table. […]

Another FT for Limit specialist John Claycomb

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

Although scheduling a LHE tournie is almost like a day off for the tournament staff John Claycomb,for one, is ever present,at any buy in.His record is good in these events and he finished fifth of eighty four at th Bike’s $100 LHE WOTG. Unless he plays the HORSE next week he is finished for the […]

Tea storms towards cup in San Jose

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

Vanna Tea reluctantly left Signal Hill last week to relocate to N.California. Well she reluctantly left behind the WOTG at the Bike. Not sure if she even unpacked before heading off to Bay101 where she is Chip leader after Day1a.That alone is worth $10k. Pretty shocked that the results are in for the 7pm WOTG […]

Bike has over a thousand entries in Guarantee

Monday, March 8th, 2010

With almost 500 on Friday and just shy of 600 on Saturday the Bikes $200 buy in $150k guarantee was a success. Very few names around but Mickey Mills was the Day1 chip leader and Sam Simon Day1b. Simon is on a roll at the moment winning $4ok in a $1500 tournament last month at […]

Heads Up from Santa Anita + Caesars

Sunday, March 7th, 2010

What a great value a day at the races is. My $2 admission voucher today included a Santa Anita wall clock, a $10 slot voucher for San Manual, two free tickets for tomorrow and $2 admission for Derby Day. To top that off the racing today was unusually competitive. I didn’t have money to bet […]

Shocks at Santa Anita and Caesars

Saturday, March 6th, 2010

A first time runner ridden by his exercise girl won in nice style in the last at Santa Anita today. Dubai You xyz was given an excellent ride by young Charleen Hunt and paid $106.80 for the win and $30.60 for the place. I was one of many hoping to hear that the win triggered […]

Pick Six at Santa Anita and Bike

Friday, March 5th, 2010

The pick six has not been won for the last two days at Santa Anita. With the carryover the pool should reach $1m on Friday.Good luck Kaptain Henry. Maybe Gevork will throw in some of his $450k WPT  windfall. I picked six to photograph in the $100 HORSE tournie at the Bike. A big field […]
