WSOPE: Tomas Ribeiro triumphs Event #11 PLO Poker

WSOPE: Tomas Ribeiro triumphs Event #11 PLO

by Gutshot Editorial Posted on 25 Oct, 2019

The 11th bracelet event concluded yesterday with Tomas Ribeiro winning his career first bracelet in Event #11: €2,200 Pot-Limit Omaha after defeating Sweden’s Omar Eljach in heads-up. Ribeiro brought his home country, Portugal its 5th bracelet. WSOP Europe has been the greatest challenge for the poker enthusiasts representing their respective nation at King’s Casino.

The final day lasted for 6 long hours, with 8 players returning to the showdown. The event shared the prize pool among the top 41 places with each receiving a minimum amount of €3,210, including Event #2 PLO winner Dash Dudley (13th, €5,829), Daniel Negreanu (20th, €4,127), Sam Higgs (27th, €3,596), Jeff Madsen (30th, €3,596) and the only Indian to cash was Jagdeep Singh (40th, €3,210).

Day 2 chip leader and the 2018 Event #7 PLO 8-Handed winner Anson Tsang entered with 480,000 chips but unfortunately, his hopes were crushed ending his journey in the 6th position. Though Ribeiro started the day with an average stack, he eventually managed to take control of the table.

Marc Palatzky had the third-largest stack and soon leading and busting out include Christopher Frank, Leonid Yanovski, the defending champion Anson Tsang, and Ilyaz Dosikov. In the final hand of the tournament Eljach (Ah Kh Js 6s) had 1.36 million chips and Ribeiro (Kc Qs Qd 10s) raised to 300k.

When the board ran 6d 4h 4c Jd 9s, the latter rushed with his Queens and Fours defeating the former to settle in second place. Ribeiro walked out of the tournament after adding a prestigious title along with a massive sum of €128,314 and the most awaited gold bracelet. The player now sits in 26th place in Portugal’s All-Time money list with total live earnings of $425k.
