Event 17: 2nd Place - Rotches

 $350 + $50 Omaha H/L 8B

 David Rotches (Ventnor, NJ) 

David Rotches is drawing dead on the turn against Bob Scofield's full house and he settles for runner-up.

"I think I did pretty good," says the 75-year-old Rotches, who was playing in his first 
Omaha tournament.

"If you look up Omaha in the dictionary," says Scofield, "you'll see a picture of how Q 9 2 7 beats A 9 4 4.

The board of 7 Q A Q J gives Scofield the winning full house.

Rotches is a retired businessman and Borgata regular who usually plays NL hold'em.

"I got tired of getting garbage cards so I figured I'd give this game a try," he laughs, "I figured with my luck I'd have a chance."
