Event 16: Quad Kings Fall To Quad Aces

$2500 + $200 Championship NLH

Daniel Voccia - HamptonsPro

In the 2011 Borgata Spring Poker Open, Daniel Voccia (West Hampton, NY) won a $65 sit-and-go then took the prize money to buy into Borgata's Championship Event Satellite where he won his seat.

He used the exact same path to enter this tournament. "Last time I didn't cash but this time I'm looking to at least min cash," said Voccia.

Daniel just returned from the WSOP where he had quad kings and lost to quad aces - yikes.

Got paid off today after flopping a set of sevens and is currently up to 78,000.

Daniel is a professional poker player from the Hamptons and even has a damn cool looking business card. Follow his tweets at HamptonsPro although Daniel told me tweeting between hands sometimes distracts his game.

During our interview an opponent at the table suggested that Daniel was getting lucky today.

If that's true, of course it's all part of the game.

I still can't imagine losing quad kings against quad aces.
