Event 13: 1st Place - Levy

$400 + $50 H.O.R.S.E

Barry Levy (Brooklyn, NY)

Deja vu all over again. Unofficially, this is the first time someone has won two titles/trophies in the same Borgata Poker Open Series. What a run for Barry Levy who took 1st Place in Monday's Omaha and now 1st Place in H.O.R.S.E. He can use both tropies as book-ends.

Barry started the day with 124,800 which was second in the tournament. He dropped down to 16,000 after dinner but never felt like he was going to lose. "I knew I was going to win it. I wasn't happy with my chip count but knew I was gonna win" said Barry who plays best from the felt.

During heads up play against Lonnie Heimowitz Barry began a 2 to 1 chip dog. Barry was as short as 100,000 at the final table. Still, nobody counted him out. After a hidden stud full-house, he doubled up with Lonnie and took control. Barry tore up the field in Omaha and Hi-Lo which was his bread and butter.

Barry has a big fan club following his success on the Borgata Poker Blog and Ilya Dyment rooted live from the rail.

Three handed, Barry was nice enough to talk to me for a moment and the floor mucked his hand. It seemed like from that moment on Barry took off and went on a heater.

Congratulations again to Borgata's first two-time Series Champion - Barry Levy.
