National Bar Poker Open Winner Basil Congo Wins the Eastern Poker Tour Season 29 $30K in Comeback Fashion

The Eastern Poker Tour Season 29 $30K Finals have to come to an end at Foxwoods.

Today’s action started with 106 players with 14 of those starting with “Double Stacks’. One by one players were falling. Ten hours later we reached the Final Table. On this table we saw Joe Colton knock out 4 players.

But in the end, it was Joe getting knocked out in 2nd place and the person knocked him out was National Bar Poker Open Champ Basil Congro from the Charity division taking home either $10,000 in cash or a $12,000 WSOP Main Event Package.

Basil, who is a very quiet person is shocked that he won in the fashion that he did. “I put the time in to play and it’s paying off”,

Basil had Season 28 Champ Manny Avila to his immediate right. “Manny is the best player and I had to pick my spots when he was/wasn’t in an hand” said Congo.

When asked what he is going to do, Basil simply replied “My wife needs a car because she just sent me a text saying “Mama needs a new car”.

Congrats to Basil, Joe and the rest of the final 16 players.

Bring on Season 30!
