Leaderboard Update

$3300 + $200 Championship No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)   

The top two players in the point standings of the Borgata Leaderboard challenge have busted on Day 2 of the Championship Event.  Two hands before the, break points leader Thomas Hoglund (New Bedford, MA) busts when his last 12k goes to Steve Dannenmann who's holding aces against pocket 7s; Dannenmann is up to 100k.

On the last hand before break, Will "The Thrill" Failla (Smithtown, NY), second in the standings, is in a hand with Luis Urioste (Flushing, NY).

After they check the board of Q J J, the turn brings a 6.

Urioste: check
Failla: bets 4k
Urioste: raises to 15k
Failla: calls

River: 6

Urioste moves all in and Failla reluctantly folds.  Urioste shows Failla the J for a full house.  Urioste now has 66k, while Failla drops to 27k and then busts two hands after the break.
