Thomas Hoglund (New Beford, MA) - 160,000
A nice sub-plot has formed between Thomas Hoglund and Will "The Thrill" Failla.
Will currently is top of the 2012 Borgata Winter Poker Open Leaderboard with 512.268 pts. while Thomas Hoglund is 2nd overall with 501.005 (after 6 cashes so far).
The winner scores a seat to the Spring Poker Open Championship. So there's a lot at stake and this tournament will most likely be a factor.
You can imagine that Thomas is gunning for Will who is also sitting on 160,000. Are you kidding me, both players have the same stack which is fourth best in the room. Both players have been on fire.
In hockey, after an overtime tie they go to a shoot-out. I'd love to see these two move to the same table and duke it out.
We'll keep you posted...
