Michael ‘Gags’ Gagliano has been grinding tournaments here at Borgata for years and despite some close calls in the past in big events (2nd place, 2013 Spring Poker Open Championship; 3rd Place, 2016 Spring Poker Open Championship; 6th Place, 2016 Fall Poker Open SixMax) the WSOP bracelet holder did not own a Borgata title.
Until today, that is. He was trailing in chips when heads-up play began, but he dominated the match and in the end came out victorious. Now the trophy that has eluded him all these years is his. In addition to the Borgata Hotel replica trophy, Michael will collect $36,084 for the win. This score will propel his career live earnings past $1.8 million.
Michael is also a BorgataPoker.com Ambassador, serving as the face of online poker here in New Jersey.
