Gruneberg will take home $31,502 and his second Borgata Poker Open trophy of the series. He previously won Event #3: $500 Black Chip Bounty for $56,073.
This is Gruneberg's third Borgata Poker Open title and he has now earned over $1,800,000 throughout his career.

He is certainly having a series to remember and he is off to get some rest before taking his seat in the BPO Championship.
