Event 18: 1st Place - Camuso

$400 + $50 Deep Stack Semi-Turbo NLH

Laura Camuso (Boston, MA)

Former RN Nurse and Social Worker Laura Camuso wins Event 18 and $17,110.

A very excited Laura gave out hugs and kisses after the win.

This is her first time at Borgata and the first time she's taken down a Major casino tournament.

Laura wasn't even gonna play in this Event but after busing Day 3 in the Championship decided to take a shot.

Three weeks ago she took the leap of faith to back herself and hasn't looked back. She's been cashing 3 out of 5 tournaments and has built up a bankroll to enter the WSOP Main Event.

Laura wanted to thank Alex Rocha, Manh Nuguyen, and Morgan. She was excited to play with 5 WSOP winners at the 1K final table and was more than willing to learn from their expertise.

Also thanks to her Granddaughter Taylor for sharing her tiny light-up shoe that Laura used as a card protector.

Son Jeffery drove down from Boston to show his support and just missed watching Mom beat out all the boys. Other Women were proud and happy to see one of the girls win 1st in a 2012 Spring Poker Open Event.

Shout out to her kids - Liz, Leeann, and friend Gary. Would most like to thank her husband Arthur for holding down the fort so she could play.

"I wanted the 1st Place trophy so bad" said a very very excited Laura Camuso. "This is better than Christmas as a kid" exclaimed Camuso.
