A third member of the Poker Night “Cash Game” has taken his seat as Western Pennsylvania’s own David Eldridge is in the Day 1A field. Eldridge is primarily a business owner but has done well for himself when he’s taken to the felt in recent years.
Eldridge started his 2016 off with a bang when he made the final table of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) Main Event. Navigating his way through one of the toughest tournaments on the calendar earned Eldridge $62,000. A few months before that score, Eldridge won the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open $1,100 event for $146,000, beating a field of 794 entries.
Coincidentally enough, both of those final tables came on a live streamed stage similar to this weekend’s Pittsburgh Poker Open Main Event. Eldridge is scheduled to play in Sunday’s “Cash Game” session but may have to rearrange those plans should he make it Day 2. There are few hole card pairings Eldridge isn’t fond of playing and we expect to see those skills on display plenty this weekend.
