Level 36: Blinds 250,000/500,000/50,000 Ante
Total Entries: 2,201
The final three players agreed on adjusted payouts and decided to call it quits about an hour after the dinner break. Gary Tavella held the chip lead and claimed 1st place along with $143,730 and the BSPO trophy. This is his first title and largest cash. In fact, before today he’s only had one reported tournament score. He’s usually found in the $40/$80 Hold’em cash games, but likes to play some tournaments when he has time.
Gary is a local home builder and is married with “a couple of kids, and three granddaughters”. They’ll all be very proud of his shiny new Borgata Hotel replica trophy. He said we may see him again in some other tournaments during this series.
Borgata tournament regular Michael Rossitto took 2nd place and $143,730. This will be his best live cash and will boost his lifetime earnings past $382,000.
Our 3rd place finisher wished to remain A. Nonymous, but he will take home $128,729.
