Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship

Bobby Suer (Dana Point, CA)

After four and-a-half hours with out an elimination, the blinds are forcing the action.

Bobby Suer is down to 1.6 million chips and is all-in with Q♣ 8 vs the Q♠ 10 of Trevor Savage. There's no help on the board and Suer is out in 4th place.

"I played very good poker," says the 5 year poker pro, "unfortunately the blinds got so high it came down to who got lucky and won the coin flips."

Suer's 4th place, $156,000 finish adds to his more than $1 million in career earnings. His success includes two top 10 finishes in WPT events, featuring a second place in 2009. Suer also made a deep run during the 2009 WPT Borgata Poker Open with a 25th place finish ($12,765).
