David Peters Wins USPO Main Event And 2019 USPO Championship
The 10-event 2019 U.S. Poker Open was concluded on Saturday night. This conclusion was not only grand but dramatic in a lot of senses. David Peters was declared the winner of the Event #10: $100,000 Main Event, and the overall USPO Championship title. David came out of nowhere and swept the title from Sean Winter by 10 points.
Before the Main Event he was at 11th position on the overall title leader-board, and after the last event, he was the winner. Sean Winter was the favorite for the title at the start of the day, but after his exit at the eighth position on the final table, it was an open battle for the trophy.
The Final Table Action
The final table started with nine players, but the money was to be given to only five. The first one to leave the table was Nick Schulman at ninth place. With his departure, the USPO title was to be settled between Winter and Peters. However, the next one to go shocked everyone. It was Sean Winter who had to exit at eighth place. This exit cemented one fact that if Peters wins the event, he was going to get the title as well.
The next one to go after this debacle was Jason Koon who exited at seventh place. Justin Bonomo was the last unfortunate one to leave the table in sixth place. After prize money came into the picture, Ryan Riess was the first one to go. Martin Zamani followed him as the next one to go. After this, the Three-handed play lasted for a while before Keith Tilston had to exit. This lead to a heads-up between Chris Hunichen & David Peters. Peters won the final hand of tournament giving him the prize money of $1,320,000, along with this he also won the USPO Championship title and $100,000 bonus courtesy of Poker Central.
