Event 8: 3rd Place - Shasho

$350 + $50 Deep Stack NLH (Re-Entry)

Mike Shasho (Ramsey, NJ) 

Mike Shasho all in and at risk for 1.6 million vs Mike Dentale.

Shasho: A♣ 9
Dentale: 8♣ 8

Flop: 2♠ 6 7♠

Turn: 5♣ (Shasho with gutshot straight draw)

River: 5

Mike "Mad Dog" Shasho doesn't win the race and is on the rail.

"I feel great," says Shasho, who picks up his second final table of the Borgata Spring Poker Open (5th place Event 5 - $6,600). "I've been a lot more patient and folding more."

Shasho is a retired retail jeweler who now spends his time at the poker tables and with vintage cars. He says the "Mad Dog" nickname comes from his wild days at the cash tables.

Shasho finishes in third place for $10,924.

Mike Dentale and Dean Chen are now heads up for the title.
