Event 23: 1st Place - J. Melo

$170 + $30 Deep Stack No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry) 

Joe Melo (Staten Island, NY)
$11,588

Joe Melo came out on top of the field of 251 enrants to claim the final trophy of the 2013 Borgata Spring Poker Open, along with $11,588 in prize money.

Joe Melo had the largest (and only) rooting section at the final table when play wrapped up at about 4:30am.  His brother and mother were here rooting him on the whole way.

His younger brother, Nick Melo, also played in this event.  Nick finished in 24th place for $373.  When I asked who was the better poker player, Joe replied "Look who's got the trophy."
