Event 20 Champion: Parker

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

Brock Parker (Silver Spring, MD)

Congratulations to Brock Parker who is the winner of Event 20, the Borgata trophy, and $76,387.

Brock didn't feel too optimistic heads up since he started so far behind. Two hours later, he picked up quality hands at the right time, played them well, and edged out his tough Opponent, Manh Nguyen. "He had me out-chipped but I made a lot of hands" said Parker.

"I was actually down to 10,000 chips yesterday then won a lot of my all-in races" explained our Champion. From that point on he collected a total of 7 $500 bounty chips.

Heads up had some serious swings, the most significant when Brock's 10-10 held against Manh's 8-8. After that it was Brock-n-roll time.

In another key heads up hand Manh bluffed when Brock had two pair.

Brock has a couple WSOP bracelets and now adds his first Borgata title and trophy to his mantle.

Brock dedicated the win to his family.
