Event 2 Recap

$260 + $40 No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

For a great affordable buy-in of $300, 480 total entries were in the field, but only one came out on top.

Her name is Amanda Musumeci. She was the second to last woman standing at the 2011 WSOP Main Event but at Borgata she is a Champion.

It was a tough field as she had to navigate through Borgata notables such as, Austen Johnson, Adam Lippert, Al Riccobono, Eric Siegel, Kelly Armentrout, Lee Kirsch, Mike Summers, Larry Gold, Eric Doerr, Mike Castaldo, James Boyle, and Mike Dentale.

Dentale ended up being the triple bubble in 48th place while former Borgata Champ, Russel Crane was the bubble boy in 46th place. Adam Lippert flirted with the chip lead then had JJ run into QQ. But in a sea of Bro-gata's, who put up their share of the $124,800 total buy-in, it was a woman from North Philly who shined.

Amanda basically ran the final-table and always seemed to have one better when the cards flipped over.

Sahu Habibi will add 2nd place money, $17,856, to his wedding fund scheduled for next August. Third place of $10,895 went to Christian Farley .

But once again your Event 2 Champion is Amanda Musumeci who hoisted the trophy for her mom and dad and added $30,925 to her live tournament bankroll. Amanda runs well in on-line turbos, adjusted her game according to today's 30 minute blind structure, and took down all 5,760,o00 chips in play.

She zigged when she should have zigged and zagged when she should have zagged. Full of in-your-face attitude but with a certain smile and charm, Amanda is the definition of EAST COAST POKER.
