While there are no “official” Borgata Poker Open leader board standings, since we cover every event, by the end of each series, we’d usually be able to give you an “off the top of our head” top five or so from each series and Dan DiZenzo (Sussex, NJ) would certainly have been on that list during the WPT BPO held in September.
DiZenzo recorded four cashes during that series, but three of those scores came in the biggest events offered, including the opening $2,000,000 GTD, the $1,000,000 GTD and the $100,000 GTD Saturday Series.
DiZenzo got off to a fast start, posting a top stack coming out of the Day 1 sessions, but couldn’t get anything going on Day 2 of the opening Event 1 and bowed out just short of the 150 player mark.
DiZenzo would get a lot going on Day 2 of the $1,000,000 GTD Event 10 and would turn that second day run into a Final Table appearance and a 3rd place finish on the “live stream”, making just over $70,000 for his efforts.
Just a few days later, DiZenzo was making another deep run in a massive field, making a top 20 finish in the $100,000 GTD Saturday Series.
Throw in another top 20 finish before the series was over and DiZenzo was solidifying himself as one of top players on our “estimated” WPT BPO leader board.
DiZenzo then continued his Borgata run good to Parx, where he made three cashes, including deep runs in both the 300 Big Stax and 500 Big Stax event, as well as recording a min-cash in the Fall Poker Open Championship.
He’s been quiet since then, but if the last WPT series was any indication, DiZenzo will be a forced to be reckoned with over the next few weeks.
He is currently working an average stack, mid-way through Level 6.
