2020 WSOP Event #28: $1,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 6-Max

Creating $498,750 in prize pool, the 28th bracelet event on WSOP.com saw 525 entries. It took 12 hours or so for the ultimate champion Connecticut’s William ‘SlaweelRyam’ Romaine to power through the strong field and take down the title, adding the first bracelet to his poker cabinet. Money reached the top 80 places after two-time bracelet winner Anthony ‘heheh’ Zinno bubbled the tourney.

Heads-up began between Romaine and Mark ‘victb’ Loli and it all came to end when the latter raised the button and Romaine called to see the  {3-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{a-Hearts} flop. Romaine ({a-Spades}{2-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}) was ahead with pair of Aces and Loli ({5-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}) held 5-5. But  {10-Clubs} and {10-Diamonds}  on turn and river gave Romaine two pairs who outlasted his opponent to collect $110,673 in top prize! The winner has over $234K in lifetime earnings including at least 9 WSOP cashes. His lone gold ring came in March 2019 when he won the WSOP Circuit WSOP.com $525 Main Event for $92,400.
