Event 16: Extra Time for Grimes

$2500 + $200 Championship NLH

Griming It Out

Al Grimes (Miller Place, NY) is halfway out of his seat and raising the white flag before he gets new life with a triple-up holding 9 4 off.  Grimes puts his last 2k all-in after the flop of 10 6 9 and two other players call, then check the turn and river.

The pair of nines are good as the the other two players muck and Grimes lives another day.  "I'll fight to the end," he says, "but figured I was done."  

Grimes is a familiar face at Borgata and is most remembered for his 6th place finish in the 2010 Borgata Winter Poker Championship Event ($116,000).  Grimes, who suffered the "worst beat" he's ever taken to eventual winner Jeff Madsen, still has some work to do after winning the last hand before break.

Grimes busted just after the break.
