$350 + $50 Seniors No Limit Hold'em
Every time there's a big hand involving Edward Newman, Leonardo Palermo leaps off his chair, rushes over, and follows the action.
Funny part is, Leonardo is playing in Event 12 - 1B deep stack. Coincidentally, his table just happens to be a couple feet away from his home game poker pal.
Palermo has been tearing up the 2011 Borgata Winter Poker Open.
He was 4th in event 1, 3rd in the Omaha hi/lo, and 14th in Event 10.
"And now my boy is doing great in the Senior" said Leonardo.
Funny to see someone rooting, not from the rail, but from the felt. I know it's a big hand when I see Palermo jump up and cheer.
