With the elimination of Mitchell Ames in 7th the final six players began to discuss an adjusted payout deal. The stacks were counted down and it didn’t take long for them to come to an agreement.
Bob Flacco who was holding the chip lead with 1,077,000 will take first earning $6,109. The players agreed since Bob Flacco was the chip leader he would take the trophy but Flacco had other things in mind.
Jacob Barkol recently lost his father who was an avid poker player and the last time they spoke he told Barkol “The next time you play poker bring me back a trophy.”
After posing with the BSPO trophy for the winners photo the players began to make their way to the payout line. Flacco turned to Barkol with the trophy in hand and handed it to him “Here, this one is for your father” he said.
The players shared an embrace and Barkol did just what he set out to do taking home his first Borgata Poker Open trophy in memorable fashion.
