Out of the Snow and Off to Borgata

by Roy Winston |  Published: Jan 27, '11


I am questioning my decision to relocate to the NY City area, after just finishing digging my car out for the 4th time this season. We had 15 inches of snow last night and the snow plows did an excellent job of putting a 3 foot wall of snow around my car. Anyway, it was a good workout, and the roads themselves are pretty clear so I’m off.

I am headed to Borgata for there Winter Series which culminates this weekend in there 2 Million dollar guarantee main event. I am going to play the 6 handed $1,000 event which starts Saturday, and some cash games as well. I know I take some heat for my strong praise of Borgata, but they provide a quality product in a great atmosphere. For those of you that have been there you know what I’m talking about, and those of you that haven’t, well it’s your loss.

I have been playing quite a bit online and am enjoying this week of Full Tilt with the double guarantees, and am looking forward to the upcoming FTOP’s series. The one event I really wanted to play is the 10k heads up, but I will be in Las Vegas as the fight doctor for my friends Muay Thai fight.
