Event 7 – ‘Omaha/Stud H/L’
Level 21 (Limits 20,000/40,000)
Total Entries: 70
Players Remaining: 1
Average Stack: 1,000,000
When this final table came together, Marc Matz was under the 100,000 chip mark, playing just a handful of big bets. His stack stayed near that mark through the first few eliminations, with Adi Prasetyo notching most of them and increasing his stack to become an overwhelming chip leader.
Matz joked to Prasetyo, “I’m fine if you knockout everyone here, except me.” and, eventually, that’s what Prasetyo did. He paced this final table to the very end but, at the end, it was Matz who flipped the script. The two entered heads up play with Matz as a slight underdog based on the chip stacks but after a run of cards, he was suddenly the massive chip leader.
Once he got the lead, he didn’t give it up and held that lead all the way to his first career Borgata Poker Open title. He’ll make just over $6,000 for his Event 7 ‘Omaha/Stud H/L’ victory and while Matz joked when play was three handed that he “didn’t care about the trophy”, he was certainly happy to earn his first piece of poker hardware today.
That concludes our coverage of Event 7 and the WPO blog will be here all day, bringing you action from two other trophy events currently playing out in the Event Center.
