Jeremy 'the Big Dog' Brown (Scottsdale, AZ)
Jeremy Brown claimed his first Borgata Open Trophy here today. He'll pick up $15,044 for the win to go with his 17 bounties.
"It feels good to take one down. Get a big lead and hold on to it" he said. He's referring to his near miss in the 2009 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship event where he made the televised final table. When heads-up in that event, he had a 19:1 chip lead, but watched it dwindle away to his opponent and eventual winner Olivier Busquet. Jeremy had to settle for second back then, along with $453,519.
