The 2020 Borgata Winter Poker Open has just witnessed another trophy head into the hands of a champion, as Todd Rodenborn secured a victory in Event #9: $230 Pot-Limit Omaha for $6,927.

Rodenborn has accumulated over $130,000 in live career earnings and has seen almost all of his success come right here at the Borgata. His largest cash took place here in 2012 when he placed second for $72,921. Although this cash is not his biggest, it is indeed his first recorded victory and with that, he takes home a shiny new Borgata trophy.

Rodenborn found a chip lead early at the final table and really had now hiccups en route to his victory but rounding out the top three to cash in this event were Franklin Moody (2nd - $3,873) and Joseph Bowles (3rd - $2,347). Both of which were just too out stacked by the likes of the eventual winner, losing in just a matter of hands once three-handed play began.
