The inaugural Bobby Baldwin Classic played to a winner on PokerGO with a familiar name emerging with the historic win. Darren Elias battled against 162 of the game’s best to win his record fourth WPT title and become the first player to hit that number.

The final table was stacked top to bottom with four WPT champions, 2015 WSOP Main Event winner Joe McKeehen, and former Aussie Millions Main Event final tablist Kitty Kuo. No matter who came out on top, history would be made on PokerGO.

Two-time Champions Club member Jonathan Little was the first to fall. The short stack when the final table started, Little bowed out against fellow two-time champ Sam Panzica.

Panzica lost a key flip to McKeehen a short while later and had his second final table of Season XVI brought to an end in fifth place.

German star and Season XIV LAPC winner Dietrich Fast started the final table second in chips but today was not meant to be his day. Fast was all-in with ‘the ones’ against Kuo but found himself drawing dead before the river.

In the hand that defined the tournament, Elias got lucky when it mattered most versus McKeehen. Should McKeehen win the Bobby Baldwin Classic, he would also take home Season XVI Player of the Year honors. McKeehen said he was playing to win but that mindset did him no good when the cards refused to cooperate.

Elias brought an astonishing chip lead into heads up play versus Kuo, who was up for the challenge. Their match lasted for over 100 hands until Elias brought the win home to write his name on the Champions Cup for the fourth time.

The next tournament for Elias is the WPT Tournament of Champions, which starts tomorrow at ARIA. Super High Roller Bowl is next up on PokerGO. The $300,000 event starts on May 27 with four days of live stream coverage until the next winner is crowned.
