Level 5: 75/150

There a few voices in poker that you can hear clear across the room and know exactly who it is. Matt Stout, Gavin Smith, and Will “The Thrill” Failla are among the most easily recognizable and we have Failla literally within shouting range of media row.

Failla is a recent edition to Table 7 and found himself sitting next to former Playboy Playmate Edina Pantinchin. We became aware of his presence when he was heard yelling across the table, “Give it up buddy. She’s never going to sleep with you!”

Pantinchin is often found at the Seminole Hard Rock poker tables and won her way into the Main Event via Qualifier. She’s laughing at “The Thrill” and having a good time, if she didn’t have a sense of humor it might have been a very long day for her.
