Event 16: Soldiering On

$2500 + $200 Championship NLH

Charles Ashby - Vietnam Veteran - 90,000

After playing poker at Borgata for eight years, Charles Ashby (Staten Island, NY) is happy to compete in his first major tournament ever.

After losing two Championship satellites in previous years, the third time was a charm for Charles as he satellited into Event 16 last night.

As for today, "New people keep coming to our table and handing us chips" said Ashby.

Charles won 70,000 after his opponent flopped two pair and Charles' aces hit runner, runner for a bigger two pair.

Ashby likes to talk at the table and in trying to get an opponent to fold, in classic Uncle Sam fashion said, "I Want You!".

It's been a long day for the disabled Vietnam Veteran who says hi to his wife Jackie who he called his hero.
