Wantman And Lee Looking To "Take No Prisoners" Again

CPPT Main Event
Level 8 (250/500/75)
Total Entrants: 177
Matthew Wantman (Stoneham, MA)
Foxwoods "regulars" invaded first week of the Borgata Winter Poker Open with a "take no prisoners" mentality as Matthew Wantman and Stanley Lee each won their first major live tournament titles, with Wantman winning Event 4 of that series for $50,000 and Lee winning Event 11 of the WPO for $66,000 after making a deep run in the opening $2,000,000 GTD event as well.

While Lee opened up the series with a big score and then won his title, Wantman did it the other way around, winning his title in the first week of play and then waiting until the end of the series and the WPT WPO Championship to notch his second biggest haul of the month long event.

That WPT score would net Wantman just under $7,000 and would be the first WPT cash of his career, putting himself up and over the $200,000 mark in terms of career live earnings.

Both players have been seen looking for another score here in first few events of the Card Player Poker Tour series, but have yet to get much traction in any event they've played thus far.

They'll both look to regain that "take no prisoners" Borgata form here in the CPPT Main Event with just a few minutes remaining in Level 8 and the late registration period.
