Event #2, $150 + $20 + $50 PLO Bounty Re-entry tournament was a fun filled tournament, with plenty of action for the usual suspects who love to play poker with four cards in their hand. When late registration came to a close, there were 44 entries (including 10 re-entries), allowing the prize pool to go way above the original $6,000 guarantee.
Ron G. loves to play PLO, however when he started on the final table, he had the second lowest stack. He knows the game well and was able to start to build up his stack, as he watched the eliminations on the table take place. After losing Alphonsus Kiwook Yoon in third place, play went heads-up between Arthur W. and Ron G., and with both players having almost the identical chip stacks they asked the floor to pause the clock to allow them to discuss a deal. Ron G. had 569,000 chips, and Arthur W. had 531,000. The ICM numbers would give $1,820 to Ron and $1,790 to Arthur, with $190 left in reserve for the eventual champion. Both players agreed to the deal and also decided to hold on to their own bounty chips, adding another $50 into each of their pockets.
Play only lasted a few hands before the two players put all of their chips into the middle.
The board ran out , giving Ron a flush on the turn, and, just like that, the Event #2, $150 + $20 + $50 PLO Bounty Re-entry tournament crowned a champion, Ron G. for $2,020, with Arthur W. taking second place for $1,790.
Event #2 Champion: Ron G., $2,010 (plus bounties)
