Peter Costa, aka The Poet, makes it in seventh place to the final of the Professional Poker Tour event in Los Angeles, after a nail-bitingly tense day of play.
"I was all-in three times," said Peter Costa, "and the lowest on chips, and after three days without sleep, I was running on sheer determination and I played my heart out, but I’m in the final on March 12th."
In the final hours of play, Peter Costas was knocked out to seventh place after he moved all-in for 38,000 with JcTs. Tom McEvoy reraised all-in for 86,000 more from the big blind, and Toto folded his A6. McEvoy had QcQs. The flop was Q76, and after a 2 on the turn, the river card, another 2, was immaterial.
