$300 + $50 Deep Stack Semi-Turbo NLH
The one day Deep Stack Turbo had 340 participants playing in Borgata Event Center and battling for the $98,940 prize pool.
Some Borgata regulars that took a seat this morning at 11:00 am include:
Little Joe Wagner
Alison Parker was happy to cash and told us, "I'm having more fun than I thought, and I just lost half my chips."
The consensus enjoyed how Borgata structured this tournament.
"It's a deep stack tournament without the tedium of the early levels," says Parker
Jason Young also played well and cashed with 100 players left but didn't make his goal of the
$26,713 first place prize.
That went to our winner Mark Succucci who is an amateur player who credits his win to a World Series of Poker Boot Camp he attended where he watched the November 9 final table live.
"I kept telling myself, don't get emotional, and I didn't." explained Succucci.
Mark came down saying how he's never won a big Borgata tournament and had a feeling today was the day. His winning hand was two black sevens. The mushroom buyer/seller from West Grove, PA thanked his wife Debbie who was following on the blog all day.
Second place prize of $14,840 went to Edwin Lau while third place money ($9,201) went to Bart Seemen.
