borgata-poker-open-overviewThis year’s Borgata Poker Open attracted a milestone field of 1,042 players, up from the 1,018 players who competed last year in this $3,500 buy-in event. This is the largest WPT field ever assembled in the history of a World Poker Tour event.

The results are finally in from day 1A and 1B of the World Poker Tour  Borgata Open and they are quite impressive. Known to all 1042 entrants  as Event #17, the $3500 WPT Championship No Limit Hold’Em tournament has  been cut down to a field of 641 players from both days.

While Saturday’s turnout featured just 315 players, an impressive 727 sat down to  play here at the Borgata on Sunday morning. The end result is that  across the two days, exactly 641 players remain.

Your average stack is $49,249 chips tall with 275 players happy to be  starting Day 2 with more than that. In the current top 10 only one  player, a Canadian, Vincenzo Abate from Richmond Hill, Ontario is sitting at above 200k in chips. Here is the  breakdown of our top 10:
