Bill Blanda
Blanda Ready for “Soft” Florida Field

Bill Blanda (Galveston, TX) stirred the pot prior to the start of the Championship Event when he called the South Florida market “soft,” and that the event is “big money, easy pickings.”

The statement prompted tweets like:

“I got enemies, I didn’t even know about,” laughs Blanda who has $1 million in career tournament earnings and five career titles.

Blanda arrived at the start of play and says, “I’ve had some big hands disguised, but can’t get paid. That means they were bluffing, they’re all bluffing.”
