Jonathan Depa is the latest player to become a Poker Masters champion after he triumphed in Event #3: $10,000 Short Deck. He received $133,200 for his victory. A total of 37 players took part in the $10,000 buy-in tournament, 6 of them winning prizes. It took almost 13 levels to determine the final table. In the final hand, Alex Foxen played with J9 against Jonathan’s QJ, but despite the many outs, Foxen lost the hand and got $88,800.
Jonathan Depa went on the second day as a chip leader. It was a fantastic few months for Jonathan. He won a $25,000 high roller event at partypoker LIVE MILLIONS South America for $400,000, and also won a €50,000 short-collar tournament at the World Series of Poker Europe 2019 €641,250 ($715,457). Despite the fact that he had a big chip advantage, it was not easy for him to win because he was confronted by talented opponents.
“I definitely don’t have it all figured out, that’s for sure. I’m learning just like everybody else’s. I have a lot of PLO experience, and the two games have tons of similarities. So that’s probably why I picked it up pretty quickly. I really like it because it sort of has the best elements of No-Limit Hold’em and PLO combined, which makes it a really enjoyable game for me.”
