Ronald Keijzer has topped a 95-entrant field to win Event #9: $2,200 5-Card Pot-Limit Omaha, the final event of the inaugural PGT PLO Series at the PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.
Keijzer came into the final table with the chip lead and was the last man standing as he defeated Tommy Le in heads-up play to win $43,700. Le came into the final table second in chips and takes home $30,400 for his runner-up finish.
The 95-entrant field generated a prize pool of $190,000 and paid the top 14 places. Some of those who made it into the money include Stephanie Chung (14th - $3,800), Sean Troha (12th - $3,800), Isaac Kempton (11th - $5,700), Jeff Madsen ($7,600), Jordan Spurlin (7th - $9,500), and Christoph Csik (3rd - $19,000).
A pot-limit Omaha specialist, Keijzer notched the sixth-largest live tournament score with this victory. This was his third cash of the inaugural PGT PLO Series as he also picked up a 16th-place finish in Event #2 and a 14th-place finish in Event #7.
The Dutch player added another PGT trophy to his collection as he also won one in a series last year at the PokerGO Studio. He defeated Ben Lamb in heads-up play in Event #3: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha at the 2022 Poker Masters for a $202,500 score.
On the final hand, Le got the rest of his chips in on a flop with two pair. Keijzer had a flush draw, and he completed that draw to win the trophy and first-place prize of $43,700 to wrap up the first-ever PGT PLO Series.
