The $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship came to its epic conclusion on Saturday night, and after finishing second in the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller at the WSOP in 2016, and 3rd in this same event last year, Tommy Le won his first-ever gold bracelet! Le collected $938,732 for the biggest win of his career, beating Chris Lee heads up.
The entire final table is now available to watch on PokerGO.
The final table of the biggest PLO Championship in WSOP history began with a man leading who was chasing his part of poker history, as Scott Clements looked to become the biggest winner in WSOP Omaha history. Clements came into the day with a big chip lead, but it turned out not to be his day.
Clements, however, started out strong, taking out Militadis Kyriakides in eighth place. The Cypriot took home $79,599 after his aces got cracked by Clements who turned a set of sevens after they got all the chips to the middle before the flop.
Murat Tulek was next to go in seventh place for $105,705, the first ever tournament cash of his life. Former November Niner Eoghan O’Dea was next to go, getting his aces cracked by the kings of Mio. O’Dea collected $143,128 for his biggest result since 2014.
Hours went by before the next elimination, but it was two-time bracelet winner DeWitt who exited in fifth place. Le took his last chips in a big clash on the flop where the later winner held bottom set versus top pair with the nut flush draw. Le’s set held, and four remained.
Clements – who had retaken the chip lead at this point – then doubled up Mio and Lee, leading to his elimination a few hands later. Clements ran into Mio’s flush, and collected $277,768 for his deep run.
Three-handed it was Lee and Le who dominated, as Mio slipped further and further. Ultimately Mio was at risk versus both Lee and Le, and the runout gave the latter the pot and the knockout to start the heads-up battle with a 2:1 chip lead.
After a fairly short heads up, Le found himself victorious after five previous unsuccessful attempts at WSOP Omaha final tables. Lee – known as Genius28 online – failed to win his second bracelet but still collected $580,177 for the largest cash in his poker career.
