$1,000+$90 Heads Up NLH
It didn’t take long for Eric Schwartz to widen his chip lead against Zhaoxing Wang after gaining his initial edge. Wang was cut down to less than eight big blinds and was in shoving mode with Schwartz patiently waiting for a hand to call with.
Wang got his last 3,700 in at big blind 600 with J♦8♥ and was live against the A♥2♦ of Schwartz. The Q♠Q♦5♣ flop creeped the backdoor open for Wang. The 6♣ turn did not improve Wang’s draws and he would have to hit on the river.
The K♠ was no good and Wang will exit just shy of his third career Borgata Poker Open trophy. A winner’s recap will be posted shortly.
