$2,500+$200 Championship NLH
Level 6: Blinds 300/500/500 BB Ante
Borgata legend Will “The Trill” Failla made his return to the poker room for the Championship and made his presence felt early. After a Michael Ruane open to 1,200 and three callers including the small blind, Failla three-bet to 4,500 and picked up two calls before the small blind shipped for 45,000.
“Sometimes in life, you just have to win races,” Failla said as he called for his last 26,700. The other players abandoned their chips and they were heads up.
Failla was ahead for the double and faded the board for his double.
Failla is a six-time Borgata champ with two WPT final tables and one WPT title along with his $5.8 million in career earnings.
