The next World Series of Poker tournament with double stacks and a buy-in of $1500 is over. The victory was celebrated by Tom Coral. This event was attended by 2589 players, and the prize for the first place was $530,164. For Tom Coral, this is already the second WSOP gold bracelet, the first one he won in 2017 in the Stud tournament.

“It means a lot to me specifically because it’s hold’em,” Koral said to assorted media directly after his victory. “I think a lot of people look at me as mixed games primarily, so this was kind of my way of showing I could still play hold’em,” he chuckled.

In the heads-up, Tom Coral was confronted by Freek Scholten. However, a key hand would soon take place that saw Koral improve to a lead he wouldn’t give up. In the pivotal hand, Koral raised with ace-five first to act and saw Scholten throw in a three-bet. The flop came jack-jack-ten rainbow and Scholten threw out a small continuation-bet. Bets are often polarized here, according to Koral, and he called figuring his ace-high was still good often enough to call one bet. The turn brought an offsuit deuce and Scholten checked. Koral bet 8.5 million, around 40% of the size of the pot, and Scholten called.
