First Bluff

Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship

Scharf Survives Super Satellite

Dean Scharf (Suffern, NY) has pulled off the first major bluff of the Championship. As he walk towards his rail birds there's a gasp, "are you out?" After a slight hesitation Scharf lets his sister Lauren Snyder off the hook and stops by for a quick hello.

Snyder and her husband Rob are locals here to support Scharf, who took advantage of Saturday's Super Satellite to play his way into the Main Event. Scharf spending just $230 for a
huge discount on the $3,500 buy-in.

Three more sattys are today for Monday's Day 1B.
