WPT Borgata attracted a huge starting field this year. Not so many notable poker players, but the tournament turned out great even though the most stars decided to play WSOPE in London instead. Of the huge starting field it came to be the 6 players below who made it to the final table.

20-1 chiplead is sick. i would like to know the blinds at this point. but i have to say, i have seen a comeback that was more lucky. in my first live tournament i made to the heads-up and after a long time i won a huge pot and my opponent had less than one big blind left, while i had around 30bb. he won everyhand from that point on. all preflop all-ins. i think it were 6 hands and i had the better starting hands 4 times and coinflips the other two. that was really sick.

Twenty to one disadvantage... Who reads only this can come to think the chip leader on the heads up was a big donk, which is absolutely not true, considering the huge starting field of the beggining of the tourney that he had to pass. Even though we have to say Olivier Busquet must have been playing a powerful poker at the heads up, to come up with such a victory!
