The last day of 2009 is soon coming to an end. It has been a fantastic year with lots of thrilling news to write about almost every single day. We at BankrollMob would like to thank everyone who read and comment on our news and we hope that you continue to do so next year as well! A big THANKS to all of you! Anyhow, before becoming too sentimental, we would like to let you know which the most popular news were this year.
Joe Cada, 21, became the new World Champion just a few moments ago! He and Darvin Moon played heads-up for almost 3,5 hours, and WOW what an heads-up it was! Cada started with more than double the chips than Moon. But Moon had no plans on giving up as he gave Cada a really tough fight and even overtook the lead for a while.
The big turn for Joe Cada came when he flopped middle pair and Moon pushed all-in with a straight draw. Cada's middle pair stood up and gave him the lead. Only 8 hands later it all came to an end...
Final Hand: Joe Cada has the button (big blind 3 million), Moon raise to 8 million. Cada double-checks his hand before announcing an all in. Moon dobule-checks his hand as well before making the call. 150 million is now in the pot.
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.
Olivier Busquet - 10,350,000 Yanick Brodeur - 5,780,000 Ivan Mamuzic - 5,655,000 Jeremy Brown - 5,480,000 Keith Crowder - 2,750,000 Kenny Nguyen - 600,000
Olivier Busquet, from New York, had a big chip lead as the final table started. It was a very well deserved chip lead, and to be honest it seemed like nothing could stop him from grabbing the first prize of $925,514. But the way to the win of WPT Borgata wasn't all that easy for the American.
