There were two other trophy events here on the first day of the Lucky Hearts Poker Open Main Event, and Phil Hui outlasted 33 entries in $570 Limit Omaha 8 to win $6,765.

Hui has a WSOP bracelet in Omaha Hi-Lo, and showed his chops as he overcame a huge chip deficit during heads-up play to come back and win the title and the trophy.

Hui already has more than $1.5 million in career live tournament earnings, and this is third trophy he’s won at the Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood. This is the second final table of the Lucky Hearts Poker Open for Hui, as he finished third in Event 3 ($360 H.O.R.S.E.).
