2nd George Gillis (Glen Burnie, MD)
"It was a roller coaster," says George Gillis, who's unable to overcome a 5 to 1 chip heads up deficit and finishes runner-up to Yuebin Guo. "It's more about chips than cards at that point."
On the final hand Gillis flops a set of jacks, but Guo hits a straight on the turn to end Gillis' run.
Gillis had an up and down day and has another payday to go along with his 4th place finish in the PLO event of the 2009 Borgata Summer Poker Open.
His second place finish earns Gillis $3,483.
