Gabriel Ramos has won three titles here at the Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood in the past year.

After a surprisingly long final table that included a three-hour stretch with five players, chipleader Gabriel Ramos won the Six-Max Pot Limit Omaha trophy in a deal made shortly after heads-up play began.

This is the third Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood trophy for Ramos in the past year, and all three are for Omaha events. This is also the fifth cash of the series for Ramos, who previously finished 10th in Event 10 ($360 Pot Limit Omaha), 18th in Event 8 ($150 Big Stack NLH), 10th in Event 4 ($360 PLO 8), and fourth in Event 2 ($360 Omaha 8).

Ramos was playing two events simultaneously for a while this evening, playing in this event with a stack at the final table of Event 12, and bouncing back-and-forth between them. Unfortunately for Ramos, he fell short of the money in Event 12 (only the final five cashed), but he more than redeemed himself by winning this event seven or eight hours later.

1st:  Gabriel Ramos  –  $5,230 + LHPO trophy

Bryan Munoz, Event 13 Turbo Champion

Most eyes were focused on Day 2 of the WPT RRPO Championship but we also kicked off the last handful of events on the schedule to close out the series. Event 13 had a turbo format and it wasted no time getting to a final table and a winner. Bryan Munoz outlasted everyone, kept his chips as others dropped around him, and took home the trophy when it was done.

But that wasn’t his biggest goal. Munoz’s stated goal at the start of the final table was to win the custom-framed winner’s photo courtesy of IMPDI. All of our primary event winners walk away with one and he’s was happy to get it done.

The final table was formed only five hours after the start of the tournament and it included former SHRP champs Eli Levy and David Shmuel along with pro Ronnie Bardah. Munoz began the final table in the middle of the pack, fifth out of ten, but took and held the lead when the last four players made a deal to split up the remaining prize pool.

Munoz earned $7,474 in the deal and his chip lead had him crowned the Event 13 champ. This is not his first big score in our games; he has a Tuesday Special victory from 2016 plus a handful of major SHRP series final tables.

Congrats to Bryan for earning the win, the trophy, and his coveted winner’s photo.
