The World Poker Tour is back. First after a three-month break, the WPT Main Event was held at the Choctaw casino in Oklahoma.
The tournament with a buy-in of $ 3,700 brought 924 participants together, who fought for the Cup, place in the WPT Champions Tournament and $ 3.12 million of prize money. As usual, it turned out to be a huge number of pros among the registered players, including the main star of this summer, Scott Bloomstein. He was striving to add the WPT title to the WSOP Main Event gold bracelet, but this time the amateur player from Texas became a winner.
Recently Jay Lee has worked as a food delivery man, and all his tournament successes made up $ 10 000. Yesterday he got to the final table of the live tournament for the first time, and today, after going through a difficult and lengthy finals, he added half a million dollars to his personal account.
Despite the presence of three short stacks (Lee had a middle stack), the game in the top 6 started too calmly. They had to wait for the first knockout for 50 hands - Josh Kay knocked out Eric Bunch. During the next 50 hands Paul Fisher and Michael Stashin dropped out of the tournament, Kay retained his stack, but Lee managed to catch up with him. It took 80 hands to determine the fifth wheel in the top three. Josh Kay did not cope with the pressure.
Periodically breaking the boundary in 50% of the chips, he could not press his rivals out and facing several unpleasant coolers, finished the game on third place.
Headsup turned out not to be long. Lee started the final duel with a slight advantage, and during the first 10 hands only strengthened his position. Though Hutton lost part of the stack, he still tried to play only strong hands, but in the crucial hand he fall into Lee’s trap by paying him a full house, which he has been slowplaying starting from the flop.
After the game Lee said that he had not seen so many coolers for a long time, but was very pleased with the game and his result.
