Already a two-time WPT Champion, Rhode Island native Anthony Zinno sat with only seven big blinds at the WPT L.A. Poker Classic at Commerce Casino with just four players left before surging back to win it all on Thursday night.
Last month Zinno took down WPT Fallsview Poker Classic which along with this victory makes him only the third player to ever win back-to-back WPT titles, joining the company of Marvin Rettenmaier and Darren Elias.
Zinno has also become only the third player to ever win 3 WPT titles joining the likes of Gus Hansen and Carlos Mortensen.
It is no surprise to learn that with this score of $1,015,860, Zinno has amassed more than $2.8 million in live tournament cashes.
