9th place - Ed Corrado

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

Championship Event Final Table

Ed Corrado - 9th place

Ed opened for 110k on the button and Billy raised to 300k from the small blind. Ed called and the flop came A 7 3 rainbow. Billy led for 200k and Ed called. Turn was a Jack. Billy announced he was all in, having Ed covered. Ed had about 320k behind. He made the call, showing A9 for a pair of Aces, but Billy had him out-kicked with AQ.

Only a 9 on the river would save Ed, but it was a 6. Billy pulled the pot.

Ed Corrado finished in 9th place, earning $12,456.

He was born in Chicago, but now resides in Naples, Florida. At the age of 79, he's retired and is a regular on the tournament circuit. His wife travels with him to casinos around the country where he has amassed over half a million dollars in tournament earnings in the last ten years, starting with a win at the US Poker Championships in December, 2000 ($40,800). His most recent cash before today was a 4th place finish at the WSOP Circuit Championship in New Orleans, where he took 4th place and $59,648.

When not playing poker, Ed can be found in the skies flying a twin engine airplane.
