Poker Start: Small home tournament in 2007

Best Borgata Moment: Final tabled the first real casino tournament I played. It was the $1k, during the 2008 Borgata Winter Poker Open. It was my first real tournament and I thought, wow I can do this.

Ipod Selections: I have different music for my different moods. When I'm on tilt I'll put Out of my Head (Fastball) on repeat. Short stacked: Holding Out for a Hero (Bonnie Tyler). Tired: Gonna Fly Now (Rocky Theme Song/Bill Conti). I know my selections are cheesy, but I love them!
