Championship: Day 1B Complete

$3300 + $200 Championship Deep Stack Double Play NLH (Re-Entry)

Play has ended for the day. The end of day chip leader and winner of the $5,000 bonus is Paul Volpe with 231,800. Second in chips is Anthony Castelli from Brooklyn, New York who said he got into this event by taking 3rd place in a Borgata Poker Room tournament and winning $3,500. "I bought into this tournament with that money," an excite Anthony said. He also wanted to make sure everyone knew that "Mike Sexton is my hero." Now he's adding another $3,500 and will be looking to make even more if he can make it through this tough field and finish in the top 110. Jeremy Stein finished just short of the bonus money but is sitting pretty with 206,100.

The field will combine tomorrow for Day 2 and play will get underway at noon. Full seating assignments and chip counts will be posted on the blog in the morning.

Paul Volpe, Day 1B Chip Leader - 231,850

Championship: Last level of the day

$3300 + $200 Championship Deep Stack Double Play NLH (Re-Entry)

Blinds 250/500 Ante 50

We are playing the last level of the night. Scott Seiver was recently moved directly to the right of Will Failla which makes for an entertaining table. In a recent hand, I caught up with the action with the board reading 6524. Seiver's opponent peeked at his cards prompting Scott to say "uh oh, diamond check". His opponent made a bet, Scott mulled it over for a second and made the call. The river was the 4♣ pairing the board. Seiver's opponent bet again, a smallish bet of approximately 3 K, again after looking back at his cards. Seiver said "Never the ace when they do the diamond check. I'm going to raise something he can't call" and raises 10K more. Seiver's opponent doesn't think long before making the call. Seiver turns over pocket 5's for a flopped set and a rivered full house. His opponent mucks and Failla says "guess he doesn't have the 3."

 Scott Seiver adding to his stack

Nick Frangos and Paul Volpe are leading the way for the end of the day bonuses with less than an hour left to play.

Championship: Better than last year

$3300 + $200 Championship Deep Stack Double Play NLH (Re-Entry)

Blinds 200/400 Ante 50

The unofficial official number of entrants for the Championship event is 1,189 which exceeds the number (barely) we had last year. Another record setting field for Borgata Poker Open. Prize pool and official numbers will be released shortly and we will post that information here when it becomes available.

Since last update, Kara Scott has tripled up and moved to James Woods table. "I'm having fun," she said. Here's to another triple up for you Miss Scott!

Matthew Waxman has busted but shared his love for Borgata with his exit tweet:

Championship: Cards back in the air

$3300 + $200 Championship Deep Stack Double Play NLH (Re-Entry)

Blinds 200/400 Ante 50

We're back to playing some poker after the dinner break and we should get the final number of entrants here in a little bit as well as prize pool information.

While waiting for break to end, Kara Scott sat in media row lamenting her bad fortune (no, she wasn't telling bad beat stories). She's down to 15 big blinds. Here's to hoping she gets a quintuple up and runs all the way to the final table.

Run good Kara... Run good

Championship: Dinner Break

$3300 + $200 Championship Deep Stack Double Play NLH (Re-Entry)

Blinds 150/300 Ante 50

We are on dinner break. Players have until the end of dinner break (according to Tournament Director that is 8:25 pm) to enter or re-enter. So far there are a total of 788 registrations today bringing the total for the two days to 1,164. Maybe we'll get a late surge and top the 1,200 mark which would be impressive indeed. Regardless, the three million guarantee has been surpassed.

Ethan Foxman (Chevy Chase, MD) is among the chip leaders, if not the chip leader with 137K. Walking by a table, I heard a floor person ask a player "You want to surrender your chips?" "No... No..." the player said as he sat down. He had 120K in front of him. That would be a balla move to surrender that stack, but also a pretty stupid one.

One short stack tripled up with Q-8 against queens when he hit three eights. "Weeeeeeee," he exclaimed. He only has 16K though so still a lot of work to do.

A few dinner break tweets:

Jeff Hagen

Jeff Hagen (N. Chili, NY) and his poker chip glasses are starting to be his signature look.

After wearing them at the WSOP for the Millionare Maker tournament where he just missed the final (11th), he's now sporting them on Day 1B.

It's his first trip to Borgata and he's treading water with 25k heading towards the dinner break.

Out Foxing the Competition

There's one hour left of play before the field heads off to the dinner break (~7:08 pm). Registration will stay open through the dinner break, after that there's no more re-entry or late registration.

Ethan Foxman (Chevy Chase, MD) is a bigger stack and is up to 120k. "It's early," he says, "I hope it stays that way and we're still here at the dinner break."

Championship: Level 6 underway

$3300 + $200 Championship Deep Stack Double Play NLH (Re-Entry)

Blinds 150/300 Ante 50

Level 6 is just getting underway. This is the last level players can re-enter in. They have until the end of the dinner break (which is after this level) to decide if they want to fire another bullet. Unofficially, we are at approximately 1100 registrations for the tournament - probably won't get to last year's number unless a lot of people re-enter in the next 2 hours.

Former One To Watch'er Ebony Kenney is having a good day thus far according to her Twitter update:

Championship: Remember When?

$3300 + $200 Championship Deep Stack Double Play NLH (Re-Entry)

Blinds 100/200 Ante 25

I'm dating myself here but remember the days when you would play poker and actually talk to people in between hands or pay attention to what everyone else was doing? Ahhhh, those were the days. Now, 1/2 the table will either be texting, watching something on an iPad or even playing Candy Crush in between hands. It's not all about the cards people!

James Woods is back in action today and looking good so far. He's above 55K and stated that "I am the worst player at this table." Not sure if the rest of the table is buying it though. Mike Sexton recently took a decent sized pot when his A-K went up against pocket 7's. The flop came J-J-8 and the turn was the inevitable 8 to counterfeit the pocket 7's.

Vanessa Selbst recently tweeted about her day yesterday:

Championship: Big Stacks

$3300 + $200 Championship Deep Stack Double Play NLH (Re-Entry)

Level 5: Blinds 100/200/25 ante

 Lenard Adams

Midway through the level we find one stack that's more than 100k and it belongs to Lenard Adams (Chicago, IL) who is at 115k.

Adams says he got paid with quad Kings on a K-K-8-K-Q board against a player with pocket Queens in an 90k chip pot. "Is there a bonus for the end of night leader," asks Adams who sends a shout out to his brother Andre.

Another player jumps in and says, "double that and you have a shot."

The end of night chip leader gets $5,000, while second in chips takes home $3,500. The Day 1A chip leader was Cong Pham (Naples, FL) who bagged 191k.

Plenty of other stacks are in the 80k range including Keith Crowder (Elkins Park, PA), Perry Johnston (Oak Island, NC) and Anthony Zinno (Cranston, RI).

 Barsanti-Chou & Volpe (right)

From the cutoff, fan favorite and three-time Borgata trophy winner, Patti Barsanti-Chou (Warren, NJ) 3-bets to 1,600.  Paul Volpe (West Chester, PA) pops it to 5,800 in the SB forcing the original raiser to fold and the action is back on Barsanti-Chou.

After a long stare down, Barsanti-Chou calls with both players holding, roughly, their starting stacks.

Flop: 8 7 4♠

Volpe leads for 5,750, Barsanti-Chou goes back in the tank before moving all in , Volpe snap calls.

Volpe: AA
Barsanti-Chou: QQ

There's no help on the turn and river and Barsanti-Chou heads to the exit while Volpe is up to 70k.

Other recent bustouts include Ron Vitello (Cherry Hill, NJ) & James Boyle (Havre de Grace, MD).

Mike Sexton

WPT Commentator and Poker Hall of Fame member Mike Sexton (Las Vegas, NV) has joined the field at one of the 'late registration' tables.  He's no slouch, either.  He's got more than $5.6 million in lifetime tournament earnings and a WSOP bracelet to his credit.

On the two occasions when Mike has been playing at the final table of a televised WPT event, he has had a guest commentator fill in for him in the WPT booth.

Even though he has 55k bagged and tagged from Day 1A, Lee Childs can't get enough poker and is playing in the Survivor Turbo as we waits for Tuesday's Day 2.  Currently 13 players remain with 9 prizes up for grabs.

1st-8th places earn $3,500, not coincidentally, the same price as entry into Day 1B of the Championship Event, while 9th place takes home $2216.

Terry Grimes is another familiar face still, playing along with Marguerite Spagnuolo. Grimes was recently crippled when his A8 ran into AK.

Matt Burnitz

Matt Burnitz (Bear, DE) was runner-up in this event last year, losing to Ben Hamnett (Pittsburgh, PA).  Matt was unable to overcome the 2:1 chip deficit he faced when heads-up play began. 

It only took about 30 hands and it was over.  His last ~4 million went in pre-flop with JT suited and was trailing Ben's KQ.  A Queen on the board sent the pot to Ben. Matt  took second place and $488,850. 

Matt is back today trying to make history, again.

Then he got his chips in ahead of Steve Brecher (Reno, NV) but was run down on the river.  David finished 6th for $167,337.

David is back today taking another run at a major title.

In a game dominated by twenty-something and thirty-something year olds, it is good so see that experience still makes a difference.

Currently seated together on table 15 are James Woods, Cary Marshall, and Paul Spitzberg.

James Woods (Beverly Hills, CA) finished second in event 20, $350 Big Stack NLH, earning $17,214.
