PCA 2013: Alexis Gilbard tops the $300 turbo, beats Baumstein into third

Scott Baumstein has notched up $1,202,608 in live tournaments so while you might not have expected him to play a $300 turbo once he final tables you'd probably put your money on him. Baumstein, who final tabled the Bounty Shootout here two years ago, had to settle for third and a nice bankroll boost of $5,260 while victory went to one of the three women at the final table: Alexis Gilbard.

Gilbard, a former Poker News reporter and Jonathan Aguiar's partner, took the $16,230 first place prize for a career best live score.
