Two Former Champs Still Alive

Heads Up - Double Elimination ($2000 + $150)

A long day of heads up play is finally over as Farzad Rouhani defeats Michael Fong on back to back hands with pocket queens. "It's always the ladies," says Fong, who's out of the tournament.

On the penultimate hand of the night, Rouhani beats Fong's A J and cripples him to 2k. On the final hand it's QQ vs 6 9 and Rouhani moves on.

"This is way tougher than before," says Rouhani, who won the heads up title in the Borgata Winter Open going undefeated.

Rouhani is one of 8 players in the losers bracket who are still alive for the heads up title and return Friday morning in another elimination match.

It will take two more wins in the losers bracket for any of the remaining players to cash in at least 6th place.

Meanwhile in the winners bracket, the 4 remaining players Jesse Yaginuma, Christian Harder, Robert McLaughlin and Jack Schanbacher are all 4-0 in the tournament and guaranteed at least $6,209.

Yaginuma won this event during the Borgata Poker Open in 2009 and is looking to defend his title.
