Robert Boyko (Yonkers, NY)
Congratulations to New Rochelle Police Officer, Robert Boyko who just knocked out a player he called "crazy" in a blind-shove heads up match.
Robert Boyko locks up Event 25 for a $20,271 payday.
"Borgata is my home away from home" said an excited Boyko who shared the moment of victory with his wife Suzy who supported from the rail. "She was my cheerleader" said Robert.
Robert plays 8-10 times a month and is currently on a 2.5 week vacation.
Luck was on Robert's side two times at the final table in particular. He made a move with 6-7, was called by 8-8's and spiked an 8 on the river to complete a straight along with a monster scoop.
In another hand his A-Q ran down A-K once a Queen hit the flop.
As for the heads up insanity, Robert said he found redemption beating Kardon "Wolf" Chatman at his own game - a blind pre-flop shove fest.
This is Robert's biggest Borgata cash and he said he'll put the money to good use.
Robert Boyko finished in Place earning $20,271.
