Event 15: 2nd Place - Tim Tuveson

$2000 +$150 Heads Up Double Elimination NL

Tim Tuveson (Philadelphia, PA)

Tim Tuveson rallied from the loser's bracket to defeat Brandon Zaucha, but in the end he came up short in the "rematch." He's a University of Pennsylvania student who's closing in on a degree in Criminology.

Tuveson has spent a lot of time playing heads up on-line and thinks the Borgata Winter Poker Open double elimination format is fantastic and so was his opponent.

"He was a really good player, who didn't have any weakness. His game was solid and he knew what he was doing. Tuveson says it's "to be determined" if he'll pursue poker professionally.

Tuveson ends the tournament with a 7-2 record.
