Tournament Rake: James “Capo” Caporuscio wins USPC
Score another major tournament win for a relative unknown, as James "Capo" Caporuscio is the new boss of the USPC.
Capo whacked a final table that included Men the Master (out in 4th) and John Juanda (out in 5th). Some other guys with great mafia names also made the final table, including Frank "Fat Fingers" Vizza* (8th) and Mike "Mikey Blades" Santoro* (9th).
This is Capo’s first major win or placing of any kind, and he banks $831,532 for the take down. Ralph "the Mexican" Pecorale* was second and earned $436,500. After dominating play for the better part of three days, Mark Seif was eliminated in 11th place by none other than Capo. Poor Seif never saw it coming. The way things were rolling, Seif thought was going to be a made man. Instead, no one heard from him again.
*Totally made those up.
