Event #21 $230 Deepstack NLH drew a total of 247 entries creating a prize pool of over $47,000 and when the smoke cleared Peter Zarriello was the last man standing.

It was a long night of tournament poker that wrapped up in the Event Center in the late-night hours.

Zarriello entered heads-up play against Benjamin Datsko with more than a 2-1 chip deficit but managed to double up early in the match and he never looked back.

"I was pretty card dead for much of the day, but I was on fire at the final table, I won this one for Kobe," Zarriello said as he posed for his winner's photo.

Zarriello took home the second-largest tournament score of his career earning $13,420 and his first Borgata Poker Open title.
