Event 3 Winner - Quigley

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

 Rob Quigley (Pittsburgh, PA) 

Heads up doesn't last long as Rob Quigley and Tim Ace Eller are willing to put all their chips in preflop with each having more than 50 big blinds.

Blinds: 20k/40k/4k ante

Eller (2 million) bets 125k
Quigley (2.7 million) raises to 400k
Eller all in, Quigley calls

Eller: A Q♠
Quigley: 9 9♠

Flop: 2 5♠ 4 (Quigley still leads)

Turn: J♣ (no change)

River: 6

Quigley's pocket 9s win the coin flip and he wins the tournament and the trophy.

"I'm really happy and really relieved," says the 31-year-old part time player. "I've had a couple of cashes and a final tables here (at Borgata), so I really wanted to win."

Quigley gives credit to his girlfriend Amanda who arrived from Pittsburgh last night and was on the rail the rest of the way.  "I didn't win a flip until she got here. She's my good luck charm."

This is Quigley's first live tournament win and biggest career cash, including online.  He's looking forward to returning for the Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship event at the end of the month.
