WPT record broken with Rajkumar win

Vivek Rajkumar

The World Poker Tour was in Atlantic City this week for the Borgata Poker Open. Once again the WPT hit a new record, but not for attendance or money this time.

Vivek Rajkumar pulled off a record-setting win by taking down the final table of the Matt Stout, Michael Binger and Steve Dannenmann. John Myung was the unlucky bubble boy in the event, going out in seventh place to miss making the televised final table.

That left Rajkumar leading the way into the final table with more than $6 million in chips. His nearest competitor was Dan Heimiller with $3.3 million in chips and behind him were Andrew Knee, Mark Seif, Jason Strochak and Sang Kim.

They came together again on Thursday for the final battle in front of the TV cameras. Forty-eight hands later, it was all over and Rajkumar had become the latest member of the WPT million-dollar club.

The final-table results were as follows:

Place Name Prize
1st Vivek Rajkumar $1,424,500
2nd Sang Kim $750,000
3rd Dan Heimiller $387,500
4th Jason Strochak $337,500
5th Mark Seif $287,500
6th Andrew Knee $237,500
