Isaac Haxton became the champion of Main Event Poker Masters PLO
Poker Masters PLO series finished at PartyPoker, as part of which PLO high roller events were held. Main Event for $51 000 was a final chord and Isaac Haxton became its winner. It is worth noting that he has already got another victory at ME of this series in the tournament with $25 500 buy-in.
29 participants fought for their share of guaranteed prize pool of $1 500 000. There was a small overlay of $50 000 in Main Event, and only one player was missing to avoid it.
On the first game day, the event was held until top 5 was determined. After that, the tournament was stopped and finalists had an opportunity to rest for one day. The following day, players returned to the virtual final table. Top 5 included the following participants:
- Andre Felipe
- Christopher Kruk
- Aku Joentausta
- Grazvydas Kontautas
- Isaac Haxton
There were only 4 places in the prize zone, so the final day started with an anxious moment for all participants: bubble stage. Andre Felipe became a bubble boy and left the tournament without prize money.
Isaac Haxton was the most famous poker player among finalists. He became both the chip leader, and the player who made four knockouts. After Andre Felipe left the game, Isaac got to Christopher Kruk. As a result, Kruk finished fourth and earned $157 000.
The Finnish poker player Aku Joentausta became the next “victim”, because he also lost to Haxton.
In heads-up, Isaac had a big stack advantage against Kontautas. In the final hand, river helped Isaac and made him the champion of tournament. Haxton earned a big prize money of $675 000.
