If you hadn’t heard, the gentleman who won the Borgata 2014 Spring Open Main Event, Abraham Korotki also entered and outright won a Ladies’ Event back in 2009 (for 20k!). While he takes a little time to celebrate his recent victory at the Borgata, Bluff Magazine's Thomas Keeling isn’t about ready to let him off the hook for his industry-accepted indiscretion of having the balls to play in a Ladies’ Event.
In this really fun interview, Korotki does his best to justify that decision by praising the ability of woman on the felt, declaring that it’s not a “weightlifting contest” and noting that he “played for charity.” It didn’t hurt that he snap busted the tournament he intended to play in the first place.
The best part is listening to Keeling ask the BSO Champion if playing Ladies Events “is still something that you do?” to which he assures the audience that he’s a retired Ladies’ Champion and those days are behind him. Enjoy.
