$1,500 + $150 + $500 Purple Chip Bounty NLHE

Manh Nguyen (Munhall, PA)

After a back and forth heads up battle, Manh Nguyen's Event 20 ride is over.

He'll take second place prize to the tune of $42,013.

The final hand had Manh Nguyen shipping a short stack with J 9 and Brock Parker calling with A 10 .

Board ran: A 6 3 3 J .

"This was one of the toughest tournaments I ever played in" said Manh once the two-hour heads up showdown concluded.

His thoughts on the overall tournament had him lamenting, "there were a lot of young, good, talented kids playing out there."

Nguyen continues his winning ways at Borgata. Today he takes 2nd but on during the 2011 Borgata Poker Open he won 1st in a $500 + $60 NLH Event.

Look for Manh to play in the 2012 Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship.
