Sign Up for the 7

Event 13: $170 + $30 No-Limit Hold'em (2 Re-Entry)

"Nicky Trips" Pulls a Double

After signing up for this tournament Tuesday night, Nick Curattalo (Brooklyn, NY) decided to play in the 7 pm ($150 + $30) since he was already at Borgata. "The Yankees were coming on, they've got the big screens here, so I said why not?"

Curattalo made the most of the spur of the moment decision and won the tournament. A few hours later he returns to the Event Center to play in Event 13, and after another another 12 hours of poker Curattalo navigates a field of 948 entries to finish 25th.

Curattalo says he was inspired by two friends who made deep runs in Event 1. Rich "Migs" Migliorisi (11th) and James "The Gobbler" Nilsen (25th), who both cashed and were railing Curattalo at the end of this event.

If Curattalo plays the Championship Event and cashes, he'll be 3 for 3 and can live up to his nickname, "Nicky Trips."
