The Showboat Tournament and its rumors

I never got over to the Showboat today, but decided to play cards at Harrah's. However, I did hear how the big tourney at the Showboat went and I got a good laugh out of it.

Apparently, Paulie (Walnuts) from Harrah's got down to the final table. He comes to Harrah's looking stunned. He's in a state of disbelief, glassy-eyed, as though he can't believe what is going on. It could have been the drugs. It was probably a combination of things.

Anyway, he gets knocked out of the tounrey and wins about $2,000 for eighth place. Then, the rest of the table decides to chop the rest of the money for $10,000 a piece. Paul was pissed. It was awesome.

My guess is that Paul was acting his usual jerkface self and the rest of the table waited for him to get bounced to chop the money. That's great.

UPDATE: According to someone who was in the tournament, it was just bad luck for Paul. He just happened to be the guy that got beat before the chopped was finalized. It was fun anyway.

I was the person who knocked him out. I must admit, I don't even know who he is and had not played one hand with him in the tournament prior to being moved to the FT with him. The only reason I was in the hand was because, as you mentioned, the choop had not been finalized yet and until it was as far as I was concerned I was playing every hand for the win.
There seem to be a LOT of people who are 'happy' that this guy took one on the he an AC deadbeat or something??

I am going to be diplomatic in saying this. He's one of those guys that pushes every rule to the limit. There are many people who have stopped going to a certain poker room in Atlantic City because this guy is always there.

It's gotten to the point where the room has had to put restrictions on the people he is allowed to play with. He's a shady dude.
