9th Place - Allan Vrooman

Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship  

After action folded to Trevor Savage in the small blind, he moved all-in.  Allan Vrooman called all-in from the big blind, showing A7 off.  Trevor held pocket 3s and it was race-time.

The board came K 8 3 2 6 and Trevor flopped a set of crabs to take the pot.

Allan Vrooman finished in 9th place, earning $43,669.

Allan has a few cashes here at Borgata, but this is his first final table in a major event.  He's originally from Queens, but now resides down south in Greenville, North Carolina, where he makes a living as a coin and currency dealer.

He lists his greatest accomplishment outside of poker as "killing and skinning a grizzly bear with just a pair of toenail clippers".
