Dave Farah leads the six-handed final table of the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open, third-time WPT final tablist Daniel Busgon headlines

While WPT action at the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City wrapped up last night, the winner of the 2019 WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open is yet to be determined. However, fans of poker and of the popular series will have to wait until mid-March to see who will claim the title.

There are just six players left in contention after five days of action at the host casino and they all are vying for their first WPT Main Tour Main Event title. The six finalists will gather together for one final day of action on March 13. The final table of the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open, just as all other televised final tables within Season XVII of the series, will be played at HyperX Esports Arena at Luxor Las Vegas.

This year’s edition of one of the most popular tournaments within the WPT Main Tour schedule drew a record-breaking field of 1,415 entrants. A prize pool of more than $4.5 million was generated to be split among the top 177 finishers.

The penultimate day of the event kicked off with 29 remaining survivors and by the end of the night there were just 6 of them left to compete for the title and a first-place prize of $728,430 up for grabs.

A Little Something about the Six Finalists

The six final tablists will be led by Dave Farah, who secured a comfortable advantage over the rest of the pack over the course of Day 4 play. The player bagged and tagged 18.85 million in chips last night. Farah has two previous WPT cashes and this will be his first Main Tour final table.

Brandon Hall bagged the second largest stack last night, good for 14.1 million. The player made it to his first WPT final table and has locked up his fourth cash from the series.

Daniel Busgon rounds out the podium in the temporary chip counts chart with 9.1 million in chips. The player has seven previous WPT cashes recorded to his name and two previous final tables. Joseph Di Rosa Rojas with 5.8 million, Ian O’Hara with 5.1 million and Vinicius Lima with 3.55 million were the other three players to make it through the end of Day 4 of the tournament and secure their seat at the final table. All three of them will be playing their first WPT final table.

Each of the six finalists is guaranteed a minimum cash of $154,734. However, they are certainly eyeing the top where a prize of $728,430 awaits. The champion’s payout also includes a ticket into the season-ending WPT Baccarat Crystal WPT Tournament of Champions.
