After a final day that lasted roughly six one-hour levels, Tomas Ribeiro from Portugal claimed the title in Event #11: €2,200 Pot-Limit Omaha of the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe. Ribeiro defeated Omar Eljach heads up and took home his first gold bracelet and €128,314 in prize money.
“I’ve been a full-time poker player since 2014 when I was nineteen years old, I usually play a lot of cash games in Omaha, 50/100 is my limit now. I enjoy No-Limit Holdem, too, but I feel a little outdated because I haven’t studied it for a while. I’m a poker guy, so I love all kinds of poker! “[With Omaha], I like the card removal effects, when you play four cards you have double information, you can play with that. You can use more information on the game when in no-limit hold’em it’s more a people’s game, at least I feel that way.”
Finally, when asked about what a WSOP bracelet means to him, he said: “Actually it’s my first trophy ever, I won three tournaments, but they didn’t have trophies and winning my first ever trophy at a WSOP event it’s totally overwhelming.”
