The $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller final table lived up to the billing with six splendid players fighting for the $1.4 million first-place prize on PokerGO. James Calderaro headlined thanks to his pursuit of a second title in this event in as many years. Shaun Deeb started play third in chips and finished with his third career World Series of Poker bracelet.
Every player at the final table was chasing their own piece of poker history. Jason Koon attempted to gain his first bracelet, Ryan Tosoc already owns a WPT title and was five players from adding a WSOP win, and Scotty Nguyen was the closest he’s been in a decade to bracelet number six.

Deeb admittedly ran well at the final table and in the first few hands, got lucky against Calderaro. The hand put Deeb into the chip lead where he never looked back on his way to the winner’s circle.
