Once the deal was struck, Edwin Ortiz locked up both his biggest tournament cash ever and his first tournament win. In fact, this is his first final table appearance in a live tournament. He’ll take home the Borgata Summer Poker Open trophy and $105,000 in cash. That will come in handy for his family — his wife and 2-year-old son are back home in Queens, NY.
Originally from Columbia, Edwin has been in the US for about 12 years and playing poker for about 10 of them. He’s self-taught, learning from books and playing online. When not playing poker, he makes his living as a driver and is both a fan and player of tennis.
Also notable at this final table was Vyacheslav Niyazov. He made the final table of this event last Summer, finishing 5th for $60,526 and has now gone back-to-back, making the final table again. This time he’s taking 7th place and $60,397.
