Poker Masters Series ended with a second event $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha. A total of 62 players took part in the tournament. The winner of the event was Ryan Laplante, for whom the $186,000 prize was the second largest of his career. His biggest win $190,328 was won with a WSOP bracelet in 2016. In the heads-up, Ryan Laplante defeated Chance Kornuth, who also took second place in the first Poker Masters event.
An emotional Laplante said shortly after his impressive victory, “This tournament series as a whole is obviously very tough, playing against some of the best players in the world. The structure, however, is built to be pretty fast and especially in a game like PLO it’s a real battle and you’re constantly going for it. I tried my best to get into good situations and make thin bluffs, but honestly, I just ran really well and that’s required to win any tournament.”
