$300 + $50 NL (1 Re-Entry)
Marguerite Spagnuolo (Staten Island, NY) hustled to Borgata to play in this no limit tournament, only to find herself on the rail an hour after arriving.
Spagnuolo has top-top and is all-in with A J on a jack high flop. Tony Licastro (Long Valley, NJ) calls with Q J and hits a queen on the river for two pairs.
"That's okay, I'm starving," says the Borgata regular who entered the event one hour late. Spagnuolo, who finished 5th ($6,163) in a NL event during the 2010 September Poker Open, has opted to skip the re-entry, and instead is grabbing some food before playing in the 3 pm Survivor tournament ($200 + $30, ~1 in 10 wins $2,000).
Licastro, who has more than $1 million in career earnings, including a $55,000 first place payday in the 2009 September Poker Open, has a healthy stack as level 6 winds down.
