Event 22: 1st Place - Ruberto

$400 + $50 No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

Tony Ruberto - (Boston, MA)

Great final table and finish for our Event 22 Champion Tony Ruberto (Boston, MA).

This one felt good for Tony who said Borgata had previously been his Kryptonyte.

He caught cards when necessary and did the lion's share of the dirty work at the final table by calling down the short stacks, holding only average or below average starting hands.  This proved profitable for Tony as he knock-out player after player going from an average FT stack to the chip leader.

After knocking out 2nd in chips, Tony Antonious (Redington Shores, FL) with K-6, he quickly took care of George Cain (Kings Park, NY) winning a 99 vs. A-K coin flip heads-up.

I know he wanted to win the Championship, but after busting out and channeling his anger/frustration into Event 22, he took her down to the tune of $25,093. 

Nice haul for the Florida and Boston and Borgata Poker Pro.
