Total Entries: 64
Players Remaining: 2
Level 1: Blinds 100/200
The final two Heads-Up NLH players have returned to the Event Center to face off in the finals.
After defeating heads-up specialist Olivier Busquet 2-0 Joey Cappello will battle it out with none other than 15 time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth.
Hellmuth took a short break after defeating Ryan Hall 2-1 to enter the opening flight of the $3,500 BWPO WPT NLH Championship. With just 20 minutes left in the night Hellmuth managed to turn his 40,000 starting stack into 88,500 and move on to Day 2.
There were 64 heads-up players that entered and just two remain. One of these players will be crowned the Borgata Winter Poker Heads-Up NLH Champion and take home $37,248 and the BWPO trophy.
Play is now back underway and we will be picking up on all of the heads-up action.
1. $37,248+BWPO Troph
My opponent had me down to 4,000 in chips, actually I think 3,700 (to his 26,300), but I never gave up! I came back to win. Now I’m through to the finals in @BorgataPoker NoLimHold’em Heads Up Tourney. 64 started, 2 left, playing it out at 9:15 PM EST #POSITIVITY
