Event 1: Poker Face

$500 + $60 Deep Stack No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

 Rocha Rocking the 'Stache

Alex Rocha (S. Setauket, NY) is a Borgata trophy holder who uses his attire to try and get people off their game.

"That's the idea," says Rocha who is trying out some novelty glasses on Day 1A of the Borgata Fall Poker Open kickoff event.

Rocha, who won the premier event of the 2011 Winter Open for $151,000, has worn pajamas and slippers to the poker table and goofy hats.  The strategy is to get opponents to think he's more of a loose cannon than he really is.

Here's a look at when we profiled his philosophy earlier this year, along with his winter cap with faux fur ear flaps.
