Zachary Schwartz - (New York, NY)
Zachary Schwartz started heads-up play against Anthony Bocchino three hours ago with a 3 to 1 chip disadvantage. He hung in there, making a great fold against Anthony who floppped quad deuces, and basically just kept chipping up when he needed to.
Tournament winning hand was Schwartz A♦ 10♠ vs. Bocchino Q♥ 10♥
against an 8♦ A♣ 3♠ 6♦ K♠ board.
So why isn't this kid gonna take a shot at the Championship Event? "I got a meeting at work on Monday" said the Telecom Salesman.
His crew railed him for a good part of the heads-up match. When the tournament ended, his girlfriend Patricia shouted, "You won!" And Zachary announced he was gonna take her out to dinner and on a vacation.
Schwartz takes home $45,564 for his 17.5 hours of impressive, winning, Borgata Poker and the trophy.
