6th place - John Borzio

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

John Borzio - 6th place

Billy O'Neil opened for 150k, John Borzio called from the button, and Steven Curtin called from the big blind. The flop came 8 7 3 rainbow. Steven checked, Billy checked, then John bet 350k. Steven folded. Billy took his time, then raised another half-million on top.

John then took some time, finally announcing he was all-in. Billy said "I guess I picked the wrong time to bluff". He asked for the count and John had 610k on top. Billy finally called, tabling JT off. John was ahead with AQ off. The turn was a 6 and changed nothing. The river changed everything, however, when a Ten fell giving Billy a pair and the pot.

John Borzio finished in 6th place, earning $31,137.

John is a 59-year-old New Jersey native, currently residing in Robbinsville. He says he's a farm boy, grew up on a farm in South Jersey, fishing, boating, gardening and riding Harley's since he was 19. Today's finish is his first reported cash in a poker tournament, but probably not his last.
