A familiar face making his return to Borgata is trophy winner Todd Rebello (Oaks Bluffs, MA).
"Just got back from the West Coast," says the winner of a 2010 Spring Poker Open event for $21,000.
Rebello recently got some serious tv time, unfortunately it was as a spectator at the WSOP Main Event. Rebello is family friends with Jesse Sylvia who finished runner-up in the Octo-nine.
"10 minutes after I got there my phone blew up with 50 messages," says Rebello who was seated with Jesse's mother, Marlene, during the coverage.
Rebello, who's playing today's double black chip bounty, his first event of the series, says he's known Sylvia's family since Jesse was a young boy.
There's no word if Sylvia will be making the trip to Borgata, but here's a look at the featured interview with him when he was here in September for the WPT Borgata Poker Open.
Moments after catching up with Rebello, he's knocked out with pocket 10s against the pocket aces of Tony Tran (Philadelphia, PA).
