Jeff Mazzella Repeats! - 04/02/11

When it comes to needling Jeff Mazzella, Mike Sprugasci has it down to an art. If Jeff makes it to the final table, Mike isn't far away telling him how terrible he's playing. This month was no different except for the fact that Mike was competing for the cash as one of the final four players.

Mike's big moment came when Damon (99) and Bonnie (AK) were all-in and Mike stated that he woudn't call even if he had pocket aces. Sure enough, pocket aces is exactly what he had and despite his announcement, his call gave him a big stack when his hand held up. Jeff grew his stack when he called Jim South's A5 with a dominated A4 even after Jim flashed an ace! A four hit the board and it was time for head-to-head action. Jeff's pocket fives was enough to eliminate Sprugasci and seal his repeat championship performance.

A note to players: Make sure to use the evite rsvp. It's becoming more important to estimate the chip and table setup needs!
