Iman Majidi Wins Event 13 ($18,578)

DSC_0102

Event 13 of The Borgata Deepstacks Challenge had 185 total entries creating a prize pool of nearly $63,000. When the dust settled it was Iman Majidi who was left holding the trophy.

Majidi entered this final table as the chip leader and even though there were a few bumps on the way he was able to close it out. Majidi held more than a two to one chip advantage when heads up play began. He never relinquished this lead and when Charles Turner moved all in he woke up with ace jack and the rest is history.

This is Majidi’s first major title and he told us he is new to tournament poker. He is certainly off to a great start  taking home $18,578 and The Borgata Deepstacks Challenge trophy for his win here tonight. This will wrap up our coverage here in The Deepstacks Challenge but we will be back July 12 to pick up all the blog coverage when the Borgata Summer Open kicks off.
