On Tuesday, Sean Winter overcame the field of 809 players and won the Main Event at the SHRPO series held in his home state Florida. For his victory he received $698,175, a welcome gift on the eve of his first child to be born in less than 3 weeks. Winter showed the dominant game at the final table and received the lion’s share of the prize pool which was $3,923,650.
The final table played out well for Winter, as Cheong lost flip after flip to fall among the pretty even shorter stacks before he was eliminated in seventh. The chip leader kept the pressure on for the duration as shorter stacks battled for second-place position, looking to ladder up against similarly-stacked opponents.
Early in the final day, Winter played a significant pot to pad his stack even more. Shalom Elharar, a recreational player who recently finished fifth in the WSOP Little One for One Drop, entered the day third in chips and wasn’t afraid to mix it up with the big stack.
