WPT BPO: Rich Get Richer

$3,300 + 200 WPT Borgata Open Poker Championship NLH

Brian Lemke opened the pot from the cutoff to 25,000, and Patrick Eskandar then called out of the small blind.  Carlos Alvarado (Freeport, NY) then went all-in out of the big blind for 300,000.  It was Lemke's turn to act and he called the 300,000 (leaving 160,000 behind).  Eskandar then went all-in, and Lemke was left to call with some much of his chips in the pot.  We had a three way all-in, with Eskandar (chip leader) covering both:

Lemke: 8 8            Eskandar: As Ad            Alvarado: Ah Kc

Flop: Qs 5c Ac

Turn: 4d

River: 4h

Eskandar would win the monstrous pot and watch as his stack goes over the 2 million chip mark (2.3 million).  Alvarado would go home in 68th ($8,762), while Lemke takes home the same money for 67th.
