Borgata Spring Poker Open: Carlos Alvarado wins the Event #1 at guaranteed $1M
After the scandal of last January about the fraud on chips, the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City resumes its activities of live poker by proposing since last week its traditional spring tournament, the Borgata Spring Poker Open. This event stands out mainly by the introduction of new chips manufactured by Game On Chip Company that the Division of Gaming Enforcement of the State of New Jersey approved a week ago. The Borgata Spring Poker Open started on last Monday with the Event#1 which guaranteed a prizepool of $1 million for a buy-in of only $560. This poker tournament has raised the passion of visitors because 2,500 registrations have been registered during the four departure days.
At the end of six days of competition, Carlos Alvarado won the event for a gain of $127,652 in a 9-player final table. The four last players of the final table won the same amount after a deal. In the second place of this inaugurating event of the Borgata Spring Poker Open 2014, we find Adam Pace, followed by Kevin Grabel, Philip Neiman, Mitchell Mantin ($63,223), John Yanni ($51,181), Zbigniew Fido ($39,740), Matthew Itkin ($28,902) and Mikhail Mironenko ($21,074). The 500$ PLO Hi/Lo (Event#4) was won by Amnon Filippi on Saturday, on a field of 90 players. He pocketed $13,750 for this third victory in career. In the rest of the classification of the final table, we find Vincent Firsching in the second place for $7,464, Leonardo Palermo (3rd, $4,714), Greg Joslyn (4th, $3,536), Wilfredo Divio (5th, $2,750), Barak Zaken (6th, $2,357), C.J. Mucciaccio (7th, $1,964), Menachem Rosenberg (8th, $1,571) and Timothy Rausenberger (9th, $1,179).
