Event 16: 10th Place - Mike Dentale

$2500 + $200 Championship NLH

Mike Dentale - 10th Place - $10,183

Last level Mike "Unbelievable" Dentale (Brooklyn, NY) had AA and Paul Freedman folded A-K pre-flop to him after Mike limped, then shoved.

Fast forward to a few minutes ago. This time Dentale has A-K and runs into A-A of Austen Johnston.

Austen leads out in the cut-off for 46,000 into the 10,000 / 20,000 blinds. Dentale in the big blind pops it to 200,000. Austen re-raises to 385,000. Dentale ships his 800,000 plus stack and Austen calls.

Dentale's A♣ K vs. Johnson's A A.

Both players stand up with a crowd watching around the table.

Board runs out: A-J-2-9-6

Dentale has been playing professionally, especially at Borgata for 3 years. He's a proud father of two children and is married - which he told us is his greatest accomplishment in life.

Mikey used to be a trader on Wall Street but currently, when he's not playing poker, runs a window company which he owns.

Mike is a fan favorite at Borgata with many people cheering from the rail.

He picked up quad threes right before the bubble broke last night and continued to build his stack today.

Dentale takes home $10,183 for his 10th place finish.
