3rd Place - Daniel Buzgon

$3300 + $200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH

Daniel Buzgon - 3rd Place - $335,433

Daniel Buzgon (Marlton, NJ) lost a race with his tournament life at risk and is out of the Championship in 3rd place. A huge payday for Buzgon who pockets $335,433.

Buzgon was slightly ahead holding 7♣7 up against Jin Hwang's AK.

Here's the action for Daniel's final hand.
Bobby on the button opened for 800,000.
Daniel in the small blind jammed his remaining 7,870,000.
Jin quickly called and the television audience exploded into an uproar.

Bobby Oboodi thought for two seconds, pondering if he could felt two players and win the tournament right here. He decided to fold, letting the shorter stacks battle it out.

So we're off to the races with Daniel's 77 vs. Jin's AK.

Flop: 9♣ 10 Q♣.

Turn card J♣ gives Jin a straight.

River 7 gives Buzgon a meaningless set.

Jin advances to 18,000,000 just three million short of chip leader Bobby Oboodi.

Daniel Buzgon is finally gone. He said his good-bye's and exited the felt, soon to receive $335,433 for a job well done.

Sure to be an exciting heads-up between Bobby & Jin. Both players have many fans cheering them on from the rail. It's anybody's game. Who will be the next World Champion?
