Event 11 Champion Chris Tryba

The final hand took place during a round of Stud 8.

Chris Tryba:  XxXx  6c8d8h9d
Selim Oulmekki:  XxXx  2c5h5d4c

On fifth street, Tryba bet 60,000 with his pair of eights, Oulmekki raised to 120,000 with his pair of fives, and Tryba called.

On sixth street, Oulmekki got it all in for his last 30,000, and they turned over their hole cards:

Chris Tryba:  3c2h  6c8d8h9d  (pair of eights, 8-6 low draw)
Selim Oulmekki:  Jh2s  2c5h5d4c  (two pair, fives and deuces)

Oulmekki needed his two pair to hold to stay alive, though Tryba still had a shot at a low if he couldn’t win the high side.

The dealer dealt seventh street:

Chris Tryba:  3c2h  6c8d8h9d  9s  (two pair, nines and eights)
Selim Oulmekki:  Jh2s  2c5h5d4c  9h  (two pair, fives and deuces)

Chris Tryba rivered a higher two pair to win the pot, the trophy, and the title, and Selim Oulmekki finished as the runner-up.

Stay tuned for a recap from this event.
