Event 20: 1st Place - Schwartz

$500 + $60 Big Stack Semi-Turbo No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)  

Zachary Schwartz - (New York, NY)

Zachary Schwartz started heads-up play against Anthony Bocchino three hours ago with a 3 to 1 chip disadvantage.   He hung in there, making a great fold against Anthony who floppped quad deuces, and basically just kept chipping up when he needed to.
Tournament winning hand was Schwartz A 10♠ vs. Bocchino Q 10
against an 8 A♣ 3♠ 6 K♠ board.

So why isn't this kid gonna take a shot at the Championship Event?  "I got a meeting at work on Monday" said the Telecom Salesman.

His crew railed him for a good part of the heads-up match.  When the tournament ended, his girlfriend Patricia shouted, "You won!"  And Zachary announced he was gonna take her out to dinner and on a vacation.

Schwartz takes home $45,564 for his 17.5 hours of impressive, winning, Borgata Poker and the trophy.
