The players have just returned from break and we spotted a few BorgataPoker.com online qualifiers in the field. Soheb Porbandarwala is fresh off a win in the BWPO Saturday Series NLH event. He bested the 639 entry field winning over $52,000 and the trophy.
Anthony Maio’s Borgata Winter Poker Open also got off to a great start. Maio made a deep run in the massive 5,130 entry Event 1 finishing 36th for $7,255.
WSOP bracelet winner Matt Mendez also won his BWPO WPT Chamionship entry on BorgataPoker.com. Mendez wasted no time putting his starting stack to work and he has been in cruise control for much of the day.
He is now playing over 100,000 and will look to finish strong with less than two levels of play left in the night.
