Sean Wallace (Horsham, PA)
Blinds 3k/6k/500 ante
Sean Wallace has a big chip lead heads up and never lets Gordon Eng double-up.
On the final hand Eng is in for 120k with Q♠ 10♠, but is in bad shape against Wallace's K♠ Q♥.
After the board runs out 5♦ J♣ 5♠ K♥ 6♦, Wallace wins his first Borgata trophy.
"It feels good," says Wallace, "I've gone deep-ish, but have never had a win."
This is the 23-year-olds 6th career final table and first at Borgata.
"I've always been a big fan of this," says Wallace of the modified shoot out. "It's just more fun and out of the norm.
