Havin' A Balla

$500 + $60 Deep Stack NLH (1B)

Tom "Crystalballer" Balla

Tom Balla (Queens, NY) is among the chipleaders with 96,000.

Took down a big pot after sniffing out a bluff and calling an all-in with middle pair.

A fellow tablemate chimed in, "He had one nice call and three gifts."

In case you're wondering, there's no lenses in Tom's glasses. "They help me see through player's souls", joked Balla. As for the blue glass bird card protector? "I got all the gimmicks today. He's the blue bird of happiness."

Tom (screen name: Crystalballer) won a WSOP main event seat on-line and will head out after finishing up a few more Borgata Summer Poker Open events.
