1K Recap

Borgata Summer Open 2010
Event #10 - $1,000 + 90 NL
Entries: 153
Prizepool: $153,000

The biggest buy-in tournament of this year's series to date drew a tough field of 153 players. Over the course of two days we saw sensational poker and sick suckouts.

We began the day with the final 10 players fighting for their shot at the $45,710 first prize and Borgata trophy and it ended with Hal Neeman (Cherry Hill, NJ) standing alone as our champion. The Final Table saw Borgata regulars, 'Benny Benz' Bianco and Ed Corrado, put up a good fight, but fall short to the young kid on a card rush.

David Rosenau, Manny Patel, Adam Gerber and Tom Dobrilovic were listed as notables that anted up and busted on Day 1. Sheree Bykofsky and Joanne Monteavaro headlined the female participants, with Monteavaro placing sixth, good for $7,421.

After a busy Father's Day at Borgata, Monday's schedule includes:
- Day 1B of the $560 NL Deep Stack
- $120 NL tournament at 7 pm
