Event 9 – Chip Tye Wins Pot Limit Omaha Tournament

$300 + $50 Pot Limit Omaha Double Stack

Once Leon Benmargui was eliminated, the three remaining players decided to make a deal and split the prize money evenly. Chip Tye held the chip lead and was thus the winner of the 1st place points and trophy. Tye is turning 50 next week and has been playing poker since he was 18. He is mainly an Omaha player, both cash and tournaments, and buys storage lockers for a living. “Real life Storage Wars,” he joked, adding that he would be buying some more storage lockers with his winnings.

Congrats on the win Chip!
