Baumstein misses his two outer on the river and wins the Borgata Fall Poker Open for $372,568.
"I was lucky considering where I started," said Parker who was 26th out 27 returning players with only 14 big blinds. "I didn't expect to stay very long, but I was lucky enough to get two double-ups and then took it from there."

This is Parker's best finish at Borgata and pushes him over the $2 million mark in live career tournament earnings.

The Borgata trophy adds to a resume that features two WSOP bracelets.
