Event 22: Wolper the Artist & Writer

$400 + $50 No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

The legendary Howard Wolper is not only a poker player playing in this event, but also an artist and writer.

Before Howard won three Borgata Open titles, he "created conceptual and performance artwork in the 70s and 80s. A spinning self portrait game, a random element dispenser, a popular NY art rock group Suicide (with Alan Vega) and the Howie’s (clones playing household appliances) to mention a few. Disillusioned with the NY art scene in the mid 90s, he became a poker pro and later a poker champion."

He's now written a book which is available online.
