On Wednesday, March 15, at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas, Sean Troha booked a $200,000 win when he topped the 80-entry field in Event #4: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo at the first-ever PGT PLO Series. With the victory, Troha moved to the top of the series leaderboard with 240 points.
Earlier in the PGT PLO Series, Troha finished in seventh place in the record-setting first event. Troha now has more than $2,000,000 in live tournament earnings, according to TheHendonMob.com.

At Wednesday's final table, six players returned to action. Troha was out in front, but he only narrowly edged out Michael Wang at the top of the leaderboard. In the end, it would be Troha against Wang for the title. Wang started with a sizable lead, but it didn't take long for Troha to move to the front with a big double. Troha sealed the deal shortly thereafter to grab the $200,000 prize.

The final table was a fast one, with Sean Troha finding himself in the winner's circle after just about two hours of action. Jake Schwartz was the first player to bust, then it was Nick Guagenti falling in fifth place. Early on during the final day, Michael Wang was the player winning all the pots, including the pot that took out Guagenti, and extended a pretty big chip lead.

Wang then busted Yuval Bronshtein in fourth place, before Troha scored an elimination by busting Paul Zappulla in third. By busting Zappulla, Troha moved IP to 3,220,000 in chips entering heads-up play, but he was still trailing the 6,780,000 of Wang.

It didn't take long for the match to turn. After just a few hands of heads-up action, Troha had doubled into the chip lead. A few hands after that, the tournament was over and Troha had his hands on the trophy.

On the final hand, Troha had queen-queen-six-five in his hand against Wang's ace-queen-seven-three. The pair of queens held for Troha and there was no eligible low, so he scooped the entire pot to eliminate Wang. Wang took home $136,000 for his runner-up finish.

The $200,000 that Troha won also gave him 200 PGT leaderboard points. Combined with the 40 points he earned in the first event of the series, Troha jumped to the top of the series leaderboard with 240 total points. He's now the player to catch in the race for the PGT PLO Series title and $25,000 championship bonus.
