99 1/2 Wilson St
Norwwod , MA
The first event of the year at the Super Dragon saw a below average field of 27 players. Thank you to everybody who made the trek using roadways only a true New Englander could navigate!It was a slow moving field as players vied for their share of the $400 GTD prizepool.
5 handed action got underway with Kurt Heitman driving the action and though he was both super stacking and crippled during 5 handed play he eventually lost one too many flips to sign out 5th tonight. Longtime EPT RI rounder Steve Borges rode his short stack as long as possible but never seemed to gain ground on the field before being eliminated in 4th place. This left only Action Mike Poulin, Firefighter Paul Shaw, and tonights bounty Gloria Lambert 3 handed
With a target on her back all night, Lambert survived numerous flips while at risk long before the final table and thrived tonight before finally losing to Mike Poulin 3 handed. Action Mike squared off against Paul Shaw, how was down to 5400 early, early on but managed to weave his way through top 16 and the FT chipping up all along the way! It just wasnt meant to be for Shaw though as Action Mike just held on and hit when he needed, eventually winning one final flip to take down his second event of this early season!
Directors Note: Jason Bolton was on a quest for a 3rd consecutive win but was ousted 11th. This also marked the second consecutive event, in 2 of 2 total event this new year, where the victor captured bounty honors! Congratulations again Action Mike!
This event is part of the Southern Massachusetts Tour
