Final four chop at Isle main event

  The Isle Open Poker Tournament Series ended in a four-way weighted chop, as you could likely deduce from the smiling faces in this photo..

 Jay Romano of Boca Raton took home $100K, but three others left with at least $81K. First was to have paid more than $155,000, and fourth was $42,404. With that kind of money on the table, I'm chopping, too.

 The $2,500 buy-in event had 241 entries at the Isle Casino and Racing, many of them big names in local poker. (You'll see by looking at the money list.)

 The 62nd and final event is Wednesday, a deep stack turbo at 7 p.m. with a $7,000 guarantee. Buy-in is $120.

The money:
