When the dust settled Ricky Guan was the last man standing. Guan got off to a red hot start collecting four bounties early and never looked back. He came into the final table in the middle of the pack but was able to pick his spots and always got his chips in good.
It was a marathon final table lasting nearly six hours and wrapping up just before the clock struck 8 A.M.
Guan took a brutal beat during three handed play when his were cracked on the river by Kevin Saul’s . He took the bad beat in stride and quickly battled back to eliminated Saul in third.
When heads up play was set to begin the final two players agreed to a deal and Guan takes home his first Borgata Winter Poker Open along with $22,000. He also added $9,000 in orange bounty chips to his bankroll.
He is off to get some rest but will be right back at it in WPT BWPO Main Event on Monday.
