Patrick Lynch Mob

Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship

Patrick Lynch (Brooklyn, NY)

Table 38 is the only table on the floor physically turned 90 degrees more than all the others. And its positioned front and center like a feature table would be.

It's playing different than the other tables in that there's been no monster starting hands. No Aces, No Kings, No Queen... Not too much is going on.

The only player on center stage according to Jerry Maher (Warren, NJ) is Patrick Lynch (Brooklyn, NY).

"Thin hands are good at 38" said Lynch, a stage actor in NY.

Jerry - "This guy's been getting it in with three-gappers and hitting rivers. Unbelievable."

Patrick rivered a set over set during Level 1 and has built his stack to 60,000.

Perhaps the source of his lucky hits is coming from his tiny elephant-holding-a-basketball card protector. Who knows?

If Lynch continues to catch flushes on rivers and turning poor starting hands into tournament gold, there will be no exit stage right for this thespian.

Lynch is keeping an eye on Paul Volpe and Lee Childs. Looks like if he can't win, he's rooting for them.
