On Saturday night, the 2020 Borgata Winter Poker Open completed Event #4: $400 Saturday Series and it was none other than Men "The Master" Nguyen besting the 741-entry field, taking home the trophy, along with a $50,000 first-place prize.
Nguyen is one of the most known poker players to ever hit the felt, boasting over $11 million in live career earnings with seven WSOP bracelets. This is just a drop in the bucket as far as money goes but he did acquire a new feat, taking home a prestigious Borgata trophy to put on his mantle.
A long day of play saw just three remain at the early hours of the day as Nguyen, Eric Valerio and Alex Lunenberg battled it out for a level before taking a break to discuss an adjusted payout deal. The three agreed on a deal and Nguyen brought in the largest chunk for himself, taking $50,000. Luxenberg took $33,000 for his efforts and Valerio pulled in $30,077 for his part of the deal.
