Event 11 Recap

$350 + $50 + $100 Black Chip Bounty NLH

Big name pros and former online stars headlined a field that featured bounty hunters looking for a piece of the $93,800 prize pool.

Event #11 drew 282 players, including Lee Childs, Gordon Eng, Kevin Saul, Bill Blanda, Matt Brady, Ryan Eriquezzo, Eli Lowenthal, Josh Brikis and Austen Johnson.

After the Dinner Break, Event #11 was a poker show featuring Kevin Saul dominating the field. When you combine skill with luck, good things happen.

Kevin 'BeLOWaBOVe' Saul is best known for his impressive online results before making a name for himself on the live tournament circuit. The sponsored pro and former online instructor has eclipsed over $2 million in lifetime earnings, but lately he's decided to put his talents in smaller buy-in tournaments.

Kevin still finds time to put in volume with 10K's and other big buy-in events, but tells Borgata's Poker Blog "I enjoy the edge in smaller buy-in tournaments...there's more to exploit."

Marguerite Spagnuolo battled through a long day of poker to earn the title of last woman standing. The lucky lady busted when her K K was cracked by the young pro. The run good continued for Saul who eliminated both Harry Zhou (3rd) and Robert Fetzko (2nd) on the way to his first Borgata title. The Forest Park, IL native takes home $25,473 for the win.

Kevin kept the virtual railbirds entertained with constant texts and tweets to his followers. The #BorgataBountyDoItFest was fun to watch.
