Event 4 the $350+$50 Saturday Series Deep Stack NLH (RE) drew a total of 778 entries. This created a prize pool of over $264,000 and when the dust settled one man was left standing. Gordon Eng who was done to just 8,000 chips late in the tournament was able to spin it up all the way to a victory.
Eng showed patience picking his spots and slowly chipping up at the final table. His patience paid off when Jackie Liu moved all in for over 2,000,000 holding pocket jacks and Eng woke up with pocket queens. Eng then found himself holding the chip lead which he would not relinquish.
He adds a second Borgata Poker Open title to his extensive poker resume along with another major milestone. The $50,000 that Eng will earn for his first place finish now puts him over $1,000,000 in live career tournament earnings. Eng tells us he has to get back to work and the real world on Monday but something tells us we haven’t seen the last of Eng this series.
