Report thanks to www.bluffaustralasia.com.au David Borg is the 2008 New Zealand Poker champion. Borg defeated Melbourne’s Tony Hachem heads-up. With the blinds at 20,000/40,000, the end came when Hachem raised to 100,000 from the small blind. Borg re-raised, Hachem declared all-in and Borg called. Hachem showed Ac Qh and Borg Js 4s. The Melburnian took the lead with a flop of Qs 10d 9s, he stayed ahead on the turn (2d) but the Sydneysider made a flush on the river (3s) to claim the $100,000 first prize. Hachem took home $54,000 as runner-up.
