As the end of Day 2 approaches, the remaining Event 1 players are making their desperation shoves.
Chin Du (Belleville NJ) did just that, getting his last chips in holding pocket 8s. He ran smack into the pocket 9s of Michael Marder.
The board came K 5 Q 2 A and was not what Chin needed to survive. He hit the rail in 51st place, earning $5,566. He’s got a couple of prior small cashes here at Borgata, but this is his largest.
Only 50 players remain with about 15 minutes left in the final level of the night.
