SHARP MARINE SCORES IN W.S.O.P. POKER
2011-06-22

Captain Shortway finds a faster way to wealth
The poker news and information site Pokerlistings carried the interesting story of a Marine officer who clearly knows how to pick winners and play a few successful poker hands of his own this week.
On a three week furlough after an eight month stint in Afghanistan, US Marine Captain Robert Shortway has managed to cash for over $268,000 at the World Series of Poker, the site reports.
The canny officer started out by staking friend and fellow poker fan Justin Zaki in a World Poker Tour Main Event in Florida; Zaki scored a third placing worth $413, 000, which the two split evenly.
Captain Shortway used the cash to head for Las Vegas and indulge in some tournament action himself, a decision that proved to be a smart move.
In just a week so far the captain has enjoyed two WSOP event cashes, one of them a $263,655 third placing in a $1,500 NLHE competition.
Encouraged by his friend Zaki, Shortway has now entered event 35, the $5,000 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha competition despite his relative inexperience in that genre, and as InfoPowa went to press late evening Tuesday Vegas time he was still among the last 21 players from an original field of 507, albeit one of the low stacks.
Not bad going, considering the high ratio of quality players and professionals that entered for the event. He's in good company, with players like Gregory Brooks, Erick Lindgren, Jason Mercier, Vanessa Selbst, Michael McDonald, Tom Dwan, David Ulliott, Peter Jetten and Chris Moorman still in the mix.
As we went to press, the captain was around position 20 at level 18 on the second day of the event and assured of at least a cash of another $16 000.
