After a heads-up adjusted payout deal, Ron ‘Wink’ Winkelvoss is our Event 2 Omaha/Stud H/L mix winner. He’ll take home $9,726* and his first-ever Borgata Open trophy — the first of 21 trophies to be awarded during this Borgata Poker Open series.
Wink was a top-three stack at the start of Day 2, despite making what he called “a mistake” late on Day 1. He explained that he was so tired he used the wrong denomination of chips when he intended to raise, but was only enough to call. That resulted in a lost pot near the end of Day 1.
Nevertheless, he started Day 2 refreshed and sharp, ready to do battle, and came up with the win. The retired entrepreneur has come close before at Borgata, with final table appearances in OE, HOSE, HORSE, PLO, and PLO/8, but this is the first time he’s taken home a Borgata trophy.
He’s got an OE win from a casino in Florida and a HOSE title from Mississippi, and now he’s completed the triple crown with an OE title from New Jersey.
