partypoker and Borgata Poker crown New Jersey’s Next Poker Millionaire
Continuing to strengthen their position as the number one regulated online poker room in the State of New Jersey in terms of size, the partnership between partypoker and The Borgata online poker room featured a live $1 million 8-man live table this weekend in a promotion entitled New Jersey’s Next Poker Millionaire.
Players were able to qualify online via many satellites and even via free entries on partypoker.
The 8-man table took place on Saturday February 1st, live from The Borgata in Atlantic City, just less than one day after Anthony Merulla of New York City beat out a big field at the WPT Borgata Winter Open to win $842,379.
Play started at 3pm and the tournament ended at 9.45pm. It took three hours for the first player to bust.
The winner of the $1 Million top prize was New Jersey State resident Myroslaw Woroch who ended up flopping a straight on his final winning hand to seal the victory.
“You are New Jersey’s Next Poker Millionaire!!” shouted host Mike Sexton under a cloud of confetti.
