Matt Salsberg Looking To Win Second WPT Title
The final table of the 2013 World Poker Tour Borgata Winter Poker Open main event is set. A total of 1,042 entries were made in this $3,500 no-limit hold’em re-entry event, building a prize pool of $3,335,442. Now, after two starting days and three full days of play, now only six players remain to battle it out for the title and the $730,053 first-place prize.
The chip leader going into the final table is Andy Hwang with 9,550,000. Among the final six is Matt Salsberg, the 2012 WPT Grand Prix de Paris earlier this season. The television producer and poker player is looking to become only the fifteenth player in the eleven years of the WPT to win two or more titles. Salsberg will have an uphill battle, as he is the shortest stack at the final table.
Also of not is Jim Anderson, who enters the last six with the second largest stack. Anderson first made his mark on the tournament scen when he won the $10,000 World Series of Poker Circuit regional championship in Hammond, Indiana in 2010 for $525,449.
