The 2014 Borgata Winter Poker Open continued Sunday with Day 6 action from the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City. Now that the commotion surrounding the cheating incident in Event #1 is dying down, the focus is on the action in the 22 other events of the popular annual series.

Three more winners were crowned on Day 6. David Arsht (pictured) took down Event 6: $500 H.O.R.S.E.; Richard Gargel won Event 7: $340 Seniors NLHE; and Pat Knoll emerged victorious in Event 9: $300 Ladies Deep Stack NLHE Re-Entry. Meanwhile, Event 8: $400 $250,000 Guaranteed Deeper Stack NLHE Re-Entry kicked off with the first of three Day 1 flights.

Here's a recap of the three events that played to completion on Day 6:

Event 6: $500 H.O.R.S.E.

David Arsht outlasted a field of 113 to take down the $500 H.O.R.S.E. tournament at the Borgata Winter Poker Open for $14,796 prize. Arsht, who won a World Series of Poker bracelet in a $1,500 limit hold'em event in 2012, said he was patient at the final table before putting it into high-gear to emerge with the title.

"I got lucky in hold'em and made a few big hands," he told PokerNews after his win. "People started putting each other [all-in], and I just sat back and watched. All of a sudden, I had all of the chips."
