Joe Reddick Triumphs At 2016 Borgata $1 Million Deep StackFebruary 4, 2016 12:45 pm
Joe Reddick had amassed $372,490 in poker winnings since his first tournament cash in 2009, but on the last weekend of January the player dubbed “Black” claimed his first ever official title, as well as his biggest score to date, after taking down the Borgata Winter Poker Open $1 Million Deep Stack. After outlasting the impressive sized field of 3,270 players, Reddick walked way richer by $217,792, in the process boosting his career earnings to $590,282.
The Borgata Winter Poker Open is currently drawing to a close, with its 22 event schedule having taken place in Atlantic City between January 19th and February 5th. Event #10: $450 NL $1 Million Deep Stack subsequently saw its $1 million guaranteed prize pool swell to $1,307,200, thus offering 300 players a chance to walk away with a return on their buy-ins.
Amongst the notable pros succeeding in this endeavor was Ryan Olisar in 100th ($1,902), Tyler Patterson in 77th ($2,219), Kevin Saul in 62nd ($2,739), Jamie Kerstetter in 61st ($2,739), Greg Himmelbrand in 44th ($3,487), Zo Karim in 13th ($8,242), and Mike Linster in 11th ($11,412).
Joseph Reddick then entered the final table in pole position, but Jason Bral then Farid Jattin claimed the chip lead at different points before Reddick got his nose in front once more. In the hand of the tournament, Jattin (A-A) and Reddick (K-K) got their big stacks all-in preflop, but a K on the turn put paid to Farid Jattin’s run, who then hit the rail in 5th place for $63,716.
Now firmly back in control, Joseph Reddick proceeded to eliminate Jason Bral (4th), Hector Chevalier (3rd), and Almog Biton heads-up to claim his biggest poker success to date. Following his victory, Joseph Reddick attributed his success to “black magic”, and said that the win would provide a boost for him going into his next tournament.
