The three biggest names in the final few tables of the WPT Borgata event failed to make the final six, though Fred Goldberg has managed to make his second final table of the WPT following his fourth-place finish at Foxwoods for $230k in 2007.

That same year, Goldberg won the $1,500 Mixed Hold ‘em event at the WSOP for over $200k, meaning he is no stranger to big final tables and wins. He is second of six in the chip counts, a mere few big blinds behind chip leader Bobby Oboodi.

All six players are guaranteed at least $186,585 with the winner set to take home a $922,441. The WPT Borgata was the largest WPT field on record, with re-entries making a total of 1,313 entrants creating a prize pool of more than $4,000,000.

The final table chip counts are as follows:
Seat 1: Jin Hwang 2.205.000
Seat 2: Darren Elias 7.360.000
Seat 3: Fred Goldberg 11.080.000
Seat 4: Bobby Oboodi 11.140.000
Seat 5: Dan Buzgon 4.710.000
Seat 6: Ricky Hale 2.320.000
