David Wang has topped a 48-entrant field to win Event #10: $2,100 5-Card Pot-Limit Omaha, the final event of the PGT PLO II Series at the PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.
Wang came into the final table as the short stack and quickly secured a couple of double-ups. He continued to add to his stack and came into heads-up play with a slight deficit against Quan Tran. After a heads-up battle that lasted over an hour, Wang ultimately defeated Tran to win $32,640 and the Event #10 trophy.
The 48-entrant field generated a prize pool of $96,000 and paid the top seven places. Tyler Brown finished third, while Ronald Keijzer, who won this event in the first PGT PLO Series, came in fourth. Daniel Schimmel (5th), Jim Collopy (6th), and Ted Forrest (7th) round out the players who finished in the money.
On the final hand, Tran got the rest of his chips in preflop and ran into Wang's aces. The runout failed to improve Tran, and Wang won the trophy and first-place prize of $32,640 to wrap up the PGT PLO II Series.
