Event 18: 5th Place - Longo

 $1000 + $90 Six-Max No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)  

Troy Longo (North Haledon, NJ)

The happiest player left in the tournament is Troy Longo who says, "I picked up 11-grand just sitting here." 

That's the pay difference between 5th ($23,858) and 7th ($12,513) places after Longo was left with < 200k after his pocket queens were crippled by Will Tonking earlier in the level.

Blinds 8k/16k/2k ante

The action folds to Longo in the SB who says, "I'm all in blind."

After looking at one card Seth Berger calls from the BB.

Longo: 8 4
Berger: A♠ 8

Longo doesn't pick up any help and hits the rail.

"I have to thank my wife Tammy," says Longo who finishes in 5th place, "without her support I couldn't be here."
