Event 20: Douglas Kim - 7th

$3300 + $200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH

Douglas Kim - 7th Place - $148,848

The final televised table is set! Douglas Kim (Hartsdale, NY) is out in 7th Place after shoving his 1,500,000 short stack holding only Q 4♠.

Unfortunately for Kim, his cards weren't even live as Bobby Oboodi snap called with A Q .

Douglas did not like the flop of 8 A 3 but held some hope.

When the K hit the turn he said aloud he was drawing dead.

Once the 7♠ fell on the river, Douglas Kim officially began his exit interview and the final remaining six players celebrated.

A disappointed Kim said, "I came so close and got so far" as he spoke to WPT reporters.

He'll take home $148,848 for his 7th place finish in the largest Borgata Poker Open WPT Championship of all time.

Ironically he also took 7th place in the largest WSOP Main Event field ever (2006).

Douglass won't be on the final telecast with the final-6 but did survive his short stack today for several levels and gave himself a chance.

Super 6 have bagged and tagged their chips and will be ready to play under the lights and cameras tomorrow at 3pm in The Event Center.

See you then.
