Event 22 Recap

Borgata Summer Poker Open 2010
Event 22:
$200 + $30 No Limit Hold’em
June 30

Number of Entries: 298
Total Buy-In: $59,600
Top Prize: $17,340

The final event of the Borgata Summer Poker Open featured 298 and players and Jimmy Wong (Brooklyn, NY) is the last man standing to win the first place prize of $17,340 and the championship crystal trophy.

"I wanted the trophy," says Wong, "that's all I wanted and I got it." Wong overcame a huge chip deficit three-handed to win the title over Andrew Blake (Bloomfield, NJ) and Jacques Melki (Avenel, NJ), who finished second and third respectively.

With nearly 3 million chips in play Wong only had 150k and had to double-up twice to take the chip lead and eventually the championship. First Wong had A 6 against Welki's K J and the ace high held. A few hands later he had A Q against Blake's A 2 and when a queen flopped Wong was on his way the title.
