Mike & John McGuinness

Mike McGuinness has an incredible eight tournament wins here at Borgata, but all came in non-Open series one-day events.

His brother John McGuinness has only four wins at Borgata, two of which came during Open series events.

Their tournament earnings were comparable, until earlier this series when John took second place in a heads-up deal that ended the $1 Million GTD Deep Stack Kick Off event, garnering him $176,080 and pushing his lifetime earnings past the $500,000 mark.

"There's just no living with him now," said Mike.

Both brothers are still alive in this event with more than just bragging rights on the line. As it stands now, John is short-stacked with about 30 big blinds and Mike is sitting on about 1.4 million and among the chip leaders.
