Tournament poker is finally back! And we have the results from the latest High Roller final table. Plus Steve Z has a new article out and Lee Davy has a brand new interview with PHIL IVEY. It’s all here and more in this – the weekend edition of the Hit and Run.
Tournament Poker Returns at King’s Casino!
Sure, it’s not much, but live tournament poker is finally back in the form of the €2,500 PLO High Roller, €100K Gtd in Razvadov. The High Roller was able to generate 60 entries and a nice payday of €40,401 for the winner.
After Day One, tournament pro and WSOP PLO bracelet winner Jan-Peter Jachtmann stood atop the leaderboard with 210,000. But as is the case with PLO, he would fall short of the final table.
The top seven in this one made the money with Germany’s Ossama Khamis getting 7th for €6,733. But the tournament is still going on. With just four left Roger Hairabedian leads the way with 1,500,000, half the chips in play.
