When we last saw Todd Rebello he had just finished bagging up the biggest stack in play after Day 1b of the $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship.
Rebello failed to capitalize on the early momentum and earn a cash in that event, but he is back at it again here today, climbing in the chip counts after a recent hand saw him generate a huge preflop pot that was ultimately pushed his way.
A short-stacked player tossed his last 75 chips into the pot from under the gun, and Rebello limped in for 150 from middle position, with another player in late position following suit.
The button then decided to try the squeeze play and he raised to 600, but the small blind was having none of it, and he flatted the big raise.

After the small blind tapped the table Rebello jammed for his last 2,200, and the power play forced his trio of opponents to get out of the way.
Rebello then tabled for flopped trips, and his hand held up through the turn and river against the shorty's .
