The 2019 Borgata Poker Open has now had another tournament draw to a conclusion here in Event #6: $350 6th Annual Mike Sica Memorial Seniors. A total of 89 entries were gathered for the event and when the field whittled down to the final four a deal was made.
The players took an even chop of $4,856 each, with Dave Hollenberg taking the trophy home. Hollenberg was very clear that he wanted to take the trophy before any talks were started as he wanted to surpass his son (Michael Hollenberg) in Boragata trophies.
The other three players obliged and Hollenberg added a second trophy to his resume. Henry Porcaro, Ken Weinstein, and Mark Smolley also took home an even piece of the remaining prize pool. Each pocketed $4,856 for their piece of the four-way chop in the seventh event of the night.
