Event 15: Featured Match

$2000 +$150 Heads Up Double Elimination NL

Blanda & Affleck

The heads up tournament is underway and there's an intriguing match featuring Borgata regular Bill "Big Daddy" Blanda (Galveston, TX) and Matt Affleck (Seattle, WA), who's making his first trip to the casino.

Affleck's a young West Coast player who made two deep runs in the WSOP Main Event, including a heartbreaking 15th place finish in 2010. Blanda, a South Philly native, has three Borgata wins on his resume, the most recent in the 2008 - $1,500 Event ($207,000).

2010 Borgata Poker Open Champion Dwyte Pilgrim has a bye into the second round.
