Dwyte Pilgrim pops his WPT cherry

TAGs: Atlantic City, Borgata Poker Open, Dwtye Pilgrim, WPT

Dwyte Pilgrim had never won a WPT live event, ever. That is, until last night. Last night the World Poker Tour’s Borgata Poker Open in Atlantic City served as the stage where Dwyte Pilgrim would finally pop his cherry and win his first live event.

Pilgrim had previously won $450,000, three gold rings and cashed in some twenty WSOP circuit events and though he was one of the more successful players, the satisfaction of standing alone as a champion had eluded him. Late last night Pilgrim secured his victory in Atlantic City and snatched up a purse of $730,000.

That’s when Pilgrim went diva on us, as the WPT website depicts,”Pilgrim runs off the stage, drops to his knees near Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten, and then falls to the floor face down – we think he is crying with joy. After about two minutes, Pilgrim slowly stands up and wipes tears from his eyes as the audience gives him a standing ovation”

It kind of reminds many of us of the first time we popped our cherry. No? Or is that just me?
