The #9-ranked player in New Jersey picked up a big title on Tuesday night and came oh-so-close to a second.

Jon ‘toddchipman’ Borenstein won Event #31 ($1,000 Six Max No Limit Hold’em High Roller) for $16,207.03 after coming to terms on a chop with eventual runner-up ‘You Are Tim‘ who pocketed $14,667.97. Third place finisher Ricky ‘ratedGTO’ Quan earned $9,262.50. The event drew 65 entries.

That wasn’t Borenstein’s only heads-up chop of the night though. Daniel ‘AvaGray’ Lupo and Borenstein made a heads-up deal in Event #30 ($150 No Limit Hold’em [1 rebuy/1 add-on]). Lupo topped the 62-player field to win $4,630.27 while Borenstein had to settle for $4,000 as runner-up. ‘Tilt-Donkeyy‘ ended up with $2,251.39 for finishing third.

The final event, and largest field, on Tuesday’s schedule, was Event #32 ($100 No Limit Omaha Hi-Lo) and ‘SnashuaJ‘ beat ‘SaucyPaws‘ heads-up to win $2,631.51. A total of 117 players entered the event to create a prize pool of $10,740.60. It’s yet another second place finish for ‘SaucyPaws’. Last week he finished second to Jason ‘jayriv’ Rivkin in Event #18 ($100 NLHE Turbo). Matthew ‘MattEMenz’ Mendez wound up third for $1,396.27.
