Event 18: Adam Agaev - 1st

$170 + $30 Deep Stack NLH (Re-Entry)

Adam Agaev - 1st Place - $28,206

After Adam Agaev's (Brooklyn, NY) 10-3 of clubs held up to defeat Joe Liberta, he stood up, let out some excitement, and hugged his cousin Emil on the rail.

Congratulations to Adam who never gave up heads up even when it looks like he was outmatched and outchipped.

He began heads up with a 2 to 1 deficit then won a monster pot with 9-7 of diamonds. "I made a move...I had a feeling" said Adam.

Adam is in the liquor store business and this $28,206 represents his largest Borgata cash by far.

He already has plans for the money. Last week he booked his hotel room and bought his plane ticket for Vegas to play in the WSOP main event. "The only thing left to do was to win this tournament and I did it" said Agaev.

Great job Adam on closing out such a long and difficult final table.

Event 18 Winner!
