The experiment that was the Borgata Poker Open Main Championship has come to close with Frenchman Oliver Busquet walking away with the coveted title, and around $925,000. Busquet went into the final table with a commanding chip lead (nearly 2-to-1 on his nearest competitor) and was able to stay out of the way while Jeremy Brown (the eventual 2nd place finisher) did the dirty work knocking out 3 of the 4 other players.

1. Olivier Busquet – $925,514
2. Jeremy Brown – $453,519
3. Ivan Mamuzic – $251,955
4. Yanick Brodeur – $216,681
5. Keith Crowder – $188,126
6. Kenny Nguyen – $156,212

The WPT event was the first of its kind in two distinct ways: The first was the reduced buy-in– the championship buy-in was dropped from $10k down to $3,500: The second was a $2 million guaranteed prize-pool—the first guaranteed prize-pool for a WPT event.

The WPT’s next stop is northern Africa, for the WPT Marrakech event in Morocco.
