Lindgren, Grinder, D’Agostino Lead WPT Borgata Final Table

BorgAnother 2006 major event, another group of big name pros filling out the final table.

The WPT Borgata Winter Open has four of today’s most respected tournament players (with three WPT titles among them) vying for the title.  Leading the way is two-time WPT winner Erick Lindgren.  Erick is stacked at 2,635,000. 

In second is the man, the machine, the legend, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi.  The Grinder won his WPT title at the LA Poker Classic in February last year.  He’s sitting with 2,040,000.

Josh Spiegelman, who has no WPT titles or major event cashes to speak of, is third with 1,635,000.  He’s followed by John D’Agostino.  D’Agostino always seems to show up for the AC events, and sits with 1,340,000.

Stuart Patterson is the fifth largest stack with 1,060,000.  This is Stuart’s first major event cashing as well.  And the short-stack at the final table is 2005 Bellagio Challenge Cup winner Amnon Filippi with 820,000.  Filippi has 16 tournament cashes in his career and over half-a-million in tournament earnings.
