The most well-known player at this final table, at least to the Borgata and the World Poker Tour, is another Jersey Guy, Dan Buzgon. The poker pro and Borgata tournament regular was named as a BorgataPoker.com Ambassador shortly before the start of the 2019 Winter Poker Open and he did a great job representing the online poker site, cashing in two events before making his deep run in this Championship.
Among the final six, he’s got the most experience with World Poker Tour Final Tables, with two previous appearances. In 2011, he finished 3rd in the WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship, collecting $335,433. That remains his best live cash and he’ll have to finish third or better in this event to beat that. His second appearance at a WPT finale was the April 2012 bestbet Main Event. His 4th place finish in that one was good for more than $94,000. This 34-year-old poker pro has already locked up his fourth six-figure score here, but will work hard to add another title to his two Borgata wins and three WSOP Circuit rings.
Dan’s 9.1 million chips puts him right around the chip average with 61 big blinds. He’s in Seat 6.
