Event 20: Santiago Promises Victory

$1000 + $90 No Limit Hold'em (6-Max)  

Level 3: blinds 75/150.

Taking his seat during the previous level at table 42 is Andy Santiago (Ben Salem, PA).  "I'm going to win this tournament"  he said.  That remains to be seen, but if confidence is a factor, he's got it in spades.

Unfortunatly for Andy, he's facing Dwyte Pilgrim across the table.  Dwyte has never lacked for confidence, as everyone will see when his WPT episode airs.

Dwyte won the Borgata Poker Open World Poker Tour main event here last September, taking home over $733,000 in the process.  That final table was filmed and will appear on Fox Sports some time after Season IX begins airing in February.
