Will "the Thrill"Failla (Smithtown, NY)
Will Failla outlasts Dilip Ravindran to win the tournament and in the process continues to put his stamp on the 2012 Borgata Fall Poker Open.
It's an astonishing 5th final table for Failla in the series and marks the third time he's won a Borgata series trophy.
The win will also put Will "the Thrill" into first place on the Tournament Leaderboard standings, after beginning the day in second place. The $58,865 prize now gives him more than $3.5 million in live career tournament earnings.
With his third trophy, Failla joins the short list of three time winners*, joining Chris Reslock, Howard Wolper, Bill Blanda and Yuebin Guo.
Failla is quick to point out that he has four Borgata trophies if you include his 2007 win in a $300,000 guarantee tournament.
