Event 15: Former Winners

$200 + $30 Deep Stack No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

 Watters & Cillo

The last two winners of this tournament are not only back to try and win again, but they're good friends.

Mike Watters (Middle Village, NY) won the $100,000 Guarantee last year for $35,000, while Justin Cillo (Brooklyn, NY) took it down in 2010 for $51,974.

The players are part of another massive field as we've hit our first break of the day.

Watters says the key to his success was a dicey hand where he said, "screw it, call," which propelled him to the win.  Both players don't expect the one-day tournament to end before 6 am Thursday morning.
