Will Failla Wins Fifth Borgata Open Title

Will “The Thrill” Failla became the first player to win five Borgata Open titles when taking down Event #6 in the current Borgata Poker Open series.

Event #6 of the Borgata Poker Open was an extremely tough tournament – partly due to the 159 players who entered or re-entered the $1,090 buy-in NL Hold´em event, and partly due to the quality of the players who took part in it. It took 16 hours on Day 1 to reduce the field to the 18 players who would cash in the event and return to the tables on Day 2, and another 14 to determine who the winner would be.

Failla took down the event eight hours after the game went three-handed; defeating Jonas Wexler in the heads-up to claim the $46,269 first prize and extend a run of victories which first started in September 2007. Will Failla has also appeared at eleven Borgata Poker Open final tables (without winning) during his incredible sequence of results, and this victory took his career live poker winnings to pennies short of $4,000,000.
