No Days Off Is Paying Off For Palma

Nick Palma will look to regain the form that saw him crush the Foxwoods World Finals, where he won a $1,000 event and finished as the runner-up in a $100,000 GTD event.
After a month on the road following the early 2015 tournament circuit, Nick Palma (New Rochelle, NY) has finally settled down and is now back to his favorite place to play poker.

Nearly every poker player has their favorite spot where they "run better" than anywhere else and for Palma, that place is Foxwoods, as it's where his tournament career started and where he basically just crushed an entire series during the 2014 Foxwoods World Poker Finals.

That series would see Palma make a handful of scores, but he'd run pure for seemingly an entire week in the middle of the series, finishing 2nd in a $100,000 GTD event and then winning a $1,000 buy-in event, with those scores netting him just over $60,000 in earnings.

Palma didn't slow down after that, Final Tabling events in his next two stops at the WSOP Circuit Hammond and the Borgata Fall Poker Open.

He wouldn't slow down coming into this year either, as he spent New Years stateside but then flew to the Bahamas for the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, where he continued to play well and make serious scores, cashing in both the PCA EPT Main Event for $20,000 and making a deep run in a PCA Turbo event as well.

Poker professionals don't have many off days, so Palma would go right from the PCA to the Borgata Winter Poker Open where he'd notch another top ten finish in a PLO/NLH mix event, putting his early 2015 tournament haul at just under $25,000 in January alone.

After nearly an entire month away from home, Palma left the Borgata to get a few days to relax, but, staying true to the "no days off" way of thinking, is back on the grind here in the $100,000 GTD Card Player Poker Tour Event 1 field.

He'd be hard pressed to replicate his finishes from the last time he played a full Foxwoods series, but judging by his recent results and his hot start to 2015, we certainly wouldn't be surprised to see him make a few deep runs here at the CPPT.
