Tom Christopher - 2013 Patriot Poker Classic

(Uncasville)

After 27 long levels, 3 days of player poker, Tom Christopher is the winner of the 2013 Patriot Poker Classic.  Starting the day with only 115,000 in chips, Tom chose his spots carefully to raise.

During the last few levels, Tom became the chip leader and when it was heads-up action with Joe Starratt, he had a 4-1 chip lead.

The very last hand of the tournament…

Tom – Qh 9h

Joe – As Jc

Flop – 10d 8d 4h….Joe is in the lead

Turn – Jd….gives Tom a straight and the win.

River – Qx

Congrats to Tom and during the post-interview said that “The structure for this tournament is perfect”. Tom says that he is planning on making to the DeepStacks Poker Tour stop at our sister casino Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in 2 weeks.
