Event 1: Leading Lady

$500 + $60 Big Stack No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)     

During the previous level:

Ellen Lambeth (Charlotte, NC) opened for 3,500.

Mark Wahba (Cleveland, OH) was in the small blind and raised to 10k.

Ellen called.

Ellen Lambeth

The flop came A T 4 with two clubs.

Mark fired 25k and got called.

When the turn blanked, Mark shoved and Ellen called.

Mark had AK for top/top.  Ellen had T6 of clubs for middle pair with flush draw.

River was a club giving Ellen the flush.  She collected the pot, chipping up to over 230k.

Mark was sent to the rail.

Mark Wahba etched his name into Borgata Poker history during the 2012 Spring Poker Open.  During that series, he won an event, finished second in another, plus added three more cashes to top the Borgata Leaderboard in points.  That earned him an entry into the Summer Open Championship event.
