The Borgata Poker family wants to congratulate Scott Blumstein on his win in the World Series of Poker Main Event!
Borgata’s own 2016 Summer Poker Open Kickoff event winner, Scott Blumstein became a World Champion last night in Las Vegas! Just one year after booking his first six-figure score, he now has a seven-figure score and a massive bracelet to go with it. The final table action was followed on the big screen in the Signature Room last night as players watched one of their own take down the most prestigious title in poker.
In his post-win interview, he said “Just two weeks ago I was a New Jersey online grinder and nothing has really changed.”
“Money doesn’t really motivate me, it doesn’t drive me. I didn’t want to win this thing for the $8 million, but with that being said it’s nice to have some freedom now. The goal was to get to a point where I can do whatever I want to do. And I think I’m going to have that opportunity now whether it’s poker, business, going back to school. I have the freedom to do that now. That’s the American dream in my eyes and finding happiness is part of that. What a good way to get there.”
