Event 21 Recap

$200 + $30 No Limit Hold'em

The last one-day main event of the Borgata Poker Open began at noon Wednesday in the Poker Room with a price tag of $200 + $30, generating total buy-ins of $64,800. The final 36 would get a piece of that pie.

Among the 324 players who entered event 21 were:
Mike Summers, (Charlottesville, VA) who was looking to add to his second place finish in the $1,500 tournament (Event 14) where he earned $66,130;
Dao Bui, (Sterling, VA) Event 7, $350 Deep Stack, 4th place finisher for $15,086;
James Boyle (Havre De Grace, MD) Event 7, $350 Deep Stack, 5th place finisher for $12,025; and
Gene Castro (New York, NY).

None of these players made the final table.

With two tables remaining, Don Popowski's top pair held up against a straight-draw to scoop a monster pot, chipping up to 567k. Don (Hamilton, NJ) rode that big stack all the way to 4th place, taking home $4,714. Eric Olson (Cannon Falls, MN) did him one notch better with his 3rd place finish, earning $5,846.

In the end, it was Simon Rudin (Monroe TWP, NJ) who came out on top. He took home $16,971 and the beautiful Borgata trophy. Aaron Carr (New York, NY) had to settle for second place and $9,428.
