5th place - Steven Curtin

$2000 +$200 Deep Stack No Limit Hold'em
Borgata Summer Poker Open 2010
Championship Event Final Table

Steven Curtin - 5th place

Steven Curtin opened for 180k and Billy O'Neil announced he was all-in on the button. The blinds got out of the way and Steven called all-in, showing AK suited. Billy was ahead with pocket 6s. His lead got bigger when the flop came T 7 6, but Steven had picked up a flush draw.

It was all over on the turn, however, as the case 6 fell, giving Billy quadzilla and the pot.

Steven 'SOS' Curtin finished in 5th place, earning $37,364.

Steven was born in Linden, NJ, but currently resides in Indian Trail, NC, outside Charlotte. He's a 40-year-old insurance agency owner and has been playing major tournaments for about two years. He finished 1st in the $350 No Limit event at the Borgata Winter Open in January 2010 ($26,175) and took 2nd in the $300 No Limit event at the Southern Poker Championship in Biloxi that same month ($16,107). His next major event will be the WSOP Main Event in Vegas next month.

When not playing poker, he volunteers with Elevation Church and enjoys magic, juggling, acting and supporting his local sports teams.
