Anton Morgenstern wins AUD 530,640 at AUD 25,000 Pot Limit Omaha
Anton Morgenstern from Germany emerged victorious in the 2019 Aussie Millions Event #24: AU$25,000 Pot Limit Omaha in a stunning come-from-behind performance against Farid Jattin.
This was Morgenstern's most significant cash win of his career and second (Pot Limit Omaha) title. He had also finished twentieth at the 2013 WSOP Main Event. On the other hand, runner-up Jattin added another AU$337,680 to his lifetime earnings, taking him a lot closer to the US$4m mark.
The Final Day
There were players from all around the world in the top 10 slots ready to battle it out for the title on the final day. Andras Nemeth from Hungary, who came in as the chip leader, had to settle for the tenth spot after a neck and neck tussle with Jattin. This happened just before the second break, and he had to miss out on the final table.
The Final Table
Money was to be paid to the top seven hence, the rest of the players went in with full force. Rory Rees was the first one to be eliminated and he was followed by Japanese Takashi Ogura who finished at the eighth spot.
The first player to be eliminated with money was Alex Foxen who had to settle for the seventh spot after a brilliant move from Jattin. Max Lehmanski was the next on the list at the sixth spot. After that, Jattin removed Jarryd Godena as well.
However, a four-handed deal from Morgenstern and Tobias Ziegler forced Jattin to cut his lead to just four big blinds at the top of the chip counts. Then Ziegler removed Daniel Demicki at the fourth spot, leaving the table with the last three players. In the end, Jattin removed Tobias Ziegler before losing the title to Morgenstern.
