Kevin Vannicola (Toronto) who tore it up in the Bahamas during the PokerStars Carribean Adventure, making three final tables and over $168,000, has blanked here during the Borgata Winter Open.
Today he got his chips in good holding pocket Kings on a King-high flop against a player who held AQ for top/top. Another Queen hit the turn and Vannicola reported to the rail. "How does someone put their tournament life on this line this early with top pair?" he wondered. That's a question for poker minds greater than mine.
