Austrian player Borromias recently took down a $14,000 WSOP prize package.
He explained how he made it to the final WSOP Satellite saying, “I qualified through a $80 subqualifier. If I remember correctly, I played two or three of these.”
Once he got there, how did the final WSOP satellite go? He admits he doesn’t remember much except that he was chip-leader most of the time!
Borromias summed up the tournament modestly saying, “the tourney went down somewhat smoothly”.
Borromias is a PartyPoker.com regular and for him it’s all about securing seats at action-packed live events. He says, “I play on PartyPoker.com mostly for the WPT and WSOP satellites. I also play 6max PLO cash games and regular tournaments from time to time.”
The Austrian isn’t just going to be paying Las Vegas a flying visit either. He reveals, “I am of course looking forward to my trip as I’ll stay in Vegas for about six weeks during the WSOP. I’ve been there before so I already know what to expect; six weeks of live poker with loud gambling machines in the background and ‘free’ drinks!”
Borromias is a big fan of the WSOP and all it has to offer. This isn’t the first time he’s played at the WSOP either, he competed in the WSOP 2009 main event and has played in numerous other live events in Austria.
As you can imagine Borromias is pretty pumped up about getting the chance to return to the WSOP. He says “I loved the WSOP atmosphere the last time so I am really looking forward to playing there again.”
When we asked Borromias about whether he was looking forward to meeting any famous poker players in Las Vegas, he gave a tactical answer saying “Hopefully lots of recreational players”.
