Event 14; 1st Place - Pahuja

$1000 + $90 No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

Vinny Pahuja (Hicksville, NY)

At midnight, after playing Alex Rocha heads up for an hour, it officially became Vinny Pahuja's birthday. And wouldn't you know it, he just unwrapped a $43,648 birthday present and a pretty cool trophy.

"I actually won a tournament. To be heads up so many times, it feels great to take one down" exclaimed Vinny. Event 14 represents the first tournament Vinny has ever won at Borgata.
Of course it felt that much sweeter having won on his actual birthday.

Vinny gave props to his opponent Alex as they played side by side for over 30 hours. "He gave me fits" laughed Vinny. Vinny and Alex play a ton of Borgata tournaments but this was the first time the two ever played heads up.

Vinny thanked his rail for their support and for being there the entire heads up.

What's next? Vinny says he's gonna crash tonight, then probably jump in the Championship tomorrow.

Congratulations to our 2012 Borgata Spring Poker Open Event 14 champ, Vinny Pahuja.
