$1,000+$90 Heads Up NLH
The Heads Up event is always one of the premier events in any Borgata Poker Open. Top players looking to show their mano-a-mano skills enter with the hope of winning the event and taking down bragging rights. It is always a decorated field but it was a less familiar name who entered the winner’s circle for the second consecutive time.
Eric Schwartz won the Heads Up event in September when it was in the “Online Live” format. Schwartz battled through a sea of tough opponents to make it deep including Barry Leventhal, Jeremy Perez, and Jon Gilliam. Schwartz’s final opponent, Zhaoxing Wang, provided a game battle as their final match went the full three-game distance. Schwartz would eventually prevail and once again hoist the Heads Up trophy.
With his second victory in as many Borgata Poker Opens, we will likely see Schwartz back inside the Event Center to take his chance at a third consecutive victory.
