Jeff Madsen Wins the 2010 Borgata Winter Open Championship

Two-time 2006 WSOP (world series of poker) bracelet winner Jeff Madsen returned to top form on February 8th, 2010, winning the Borgata Winter Open Championship in Atlantic City. The 24 year-old Full Tilt poker pro outwitted a field of 766 poker players with several well-known poker pros to take home the title and the $625,000 1st place cash prize.

Madsen said that he feels really good about his but it has not yet set in. The final tournament table in the $3,000 started at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa with New York poker pro Matt Matros going home in 10th place losing a showdown with his pocket sixes to the big slick of Nick Kamen. After that, Chan Pelton ran his ace-ten against Madsen's eights but failed to improve, going home in 9th place.

Ross Mallor was the next one to go home, running king-queen into the ace-ten of Al Grimes before David Fox busted out after Grimes made a two pair to crack Fox's ace-seven.

However, all of Grimes' work was all for naught, as he dropped out of 6th place using a turned straight draw against the trips of Jeff Madsen. Kamen then ran an ace-eight against Barkley Hamilton's kings before Hamilton himself hit the rail, losing a big set-over-set cash pot against Madsen.

Tom Marchese finished in 3rd place when he lost a race with his pocket nines against Madsen's ace-queen. But despite sending home the last two players, Madsen started that heads-up showdown with two-time World Series of Poker final table member Sirous Jamshidi about even in total chips.

Within an hour, he had a 2:1 chip lead before Jamshidi pushed with a queen high. Madsen called with a king-high and the championship was his. Madsen said that it feels really good to continue to be able to prove himself in the poker circuit.
