(l-r) Hasan, Nguyen, Gonzalez & Liberta
The PLO field is more than 100 players strong and one late registration table contains a couple of heavy hitters. Manh Nguyen (Munhall, PA), who has two final tables, including an Event 2 win and $40,000 in series earnings, joined the table after firing three bullets in the NL re-entry event.
"I should've gone with my gut and just played this," laughs Nguyen.
Another Event 8 casualty joining the table is Joe Liberta (Berlin, NJ), who also has two Borgata Spring Open cashes, including a final table for a total of $2,500.
Also at the table are Shiraz Hasan (Middletown, DE) and Joe Gonzalez (Cleveland, OH).
