Interesting Matchups

Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship 

Any event of this type is going to draw a lot of big names and they're bound to butt heads if sharing the same piece of felt.  Table six is shaping up to be an interesting mix of styles.

In the four seat is three-time WSOP bracelet holder 'Miami' John Cernuto.  John's about as old-school as it gets.  He's won bracelets in Hold'em, Stud, and Omaha, proving he's versatile.  He's cashed twice already during the Winter Poker Open, finishing 2nd in the Pot Limit Omaha event and 13th in the Omaha Hi/Lo event.

 Al Riccobono, Miami John Cernuto, and Gordon Eng

John is surrounded by a couple of 'young guns' with Gordon Eng in the seven seat (three to his left) and Al Riccobono in the two seat, (two to his right).  Gordon has yet to cash in this series.  Al has inked a 19th place finish in a No Limit event. 

This should be an interesting table to watch to see whose style wins out.
