Event 27: 4th Place - Piccolo

$200 + $30 Deep Stack Semi-Turbo NLH (Re-Entry)

Matthew Piccolo (Dumont, NJ)

Borgata regular Matthew Piccolo has now cashed in every season of Borgata Poker Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall events since January 2011.

We'll call it the Piccolo Slam.

As for today's event, Piccolo had the table in stitches as usual.

He caught lucky on one hand when his 10-8 button shove was called by Tim B's big blind A-10.

Matthew caught the 8-ball on the flop and it held.

This caused Ben Geller on the rail to say, "What planet are you from kid?"

A couple rounds later Matthew shoves from the button again. Tim tanks again, this time longer. Finally he calls with Jacks.

Matthew's A-J vs. Tim's JJ.

Board: 6-3-8-9-4.

With that loss, Piccolo was down to 8,000 and got it in begging for a double gutter on the river that never hit.

Matthew Piccolo finished in 4th Place earning $4,556
