Level 38: Blinds 400,000/800,000/800,000 BB Ante
Total Entries: 1,075
On the final hand, Eric Yilmaz was behind when the chips went in, but he caught what he needed on the turn to take the lead. He defeated TK Miles after about 2.5 hours of heads-up play to take the 2018 World Poker Tour Borgata Poker Open Championship title. First place is good for $575,112, which includes $15,000 for an entry in the Season XVII Tournament of Champions (all expenses paid to Las Vegas) and the Borgata Open and WPT Champions Cup trophies.
This is his biggest score ever and he won his seat in this event in a $400 satellite. Eric is a professional poker player and newlywed (for about 1 month). He’s planning to use some of the money to take his new wife on a honeymoon. Then he plans to play lots more World Poker Tour events.
He was the chip leader for a large portion of Day 4, running over the table on the way to the final six. He held the chip lead all day at the final table until heads-up with poker pro TK Miles. They traded the lead back-and-forth several times before Eric finally secured the win.
