Montreal native Eric Afriat earned his second World Poker Tour title winning the Season XVI WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open.
Afriat outplayed a field of 1,244 entries for a pay check of $651,928 after defeating Justin Zaki in heads-up play.
“The excitement of a second title, I think it brings me to another level,” Afriat said. “You win one WPT, but when you win the second WPT, I think you are considered a great poker player. I knew I was a good poker player and maybe even a great poker player, but to come in and have two of them, I think I put my stamp on what I do.”
Final Table Results were:
1 Eric Afriat – $651,928
2 Justin Zaki – $434,614
3 Zachary Gruneberg – $321,533
