Event 16 Champion Mark Dube
Event 16 Champion Mark Dube

Late last night here at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open, Mark Dube won Event #11, and Gabriel Ramos won Event #12. Tonight, they both made the final table of Event #16 ($360 Pot-Limit Omaha Six-Max). In fact, four of the final five players in this event were also at final tables last night — Dube, Ramos, Dewey Raines, and Manuel Suarez.

Though he started the seven-handed final table as the short stack with just 10 big blinds, it was Mark Dube who emerged victorious tonight, winning his second SHRPO trophy in two nights — without any deals.

One of the most crucial hands for Dube came early at the final table when he was still short-stacked. “I think I only had about 50,000 at that point. And I got aces in versus kings and flopped quad aces. So that was good. Obviously if I lose that, I’m out.”

Dewey Raines, who finished third behind Dube last night in Event #11, held the chip lead for most of this final table, but Dube won a huge pot when there were three players left to take a big lead. Gabriel Ramos was eliminated a few minutes later, and then Dube defeated Raines heads-up.

These are the first two titles Dube has won here at the Seminole Hard Rock, though he has come close a couple of times, including a runner-up finish in the 2015 WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open, where he earned $434,462.

Asked to describe his back-to-back victories, Dube said, “It feels good. It’s definitely unexpected. Pretty much everything’s been going my way again for the second night in a row.”

There are two more one-day events tomorrow (Thursday) — $2,200 Eight-Handed No-Limit Hold’em, and the $300 CSOP Charity Event. Can Mark Dube win three titles in three days? Return to SHRPO.com to find out.

Dewey Raines got it all in from the button for 480,000 against Mark Dube, who had 660,000 in the big blind. They turned over their cards:

Mark Dube:  [Ah][Ac][10c][9d]
Dewey Raines:  [Jd][8h][7d][7c]

The flop came [Js][8d][5c], and Raines flopped two pair, jacks and eights, to take the lead. But Dube still had his pocket aces, along with an open-ended straight draw.

The turn card was the [Qs], giving Dube the lead with a queen-high straight. Raines would need a jack or an eight on the river to stay alive.

The river card was the [5s], and Dube won the pot — and his second SHRPO title in two days — with a queen-high straight. Raines finished as the runner-up, earning $5,940.

Congratulations to Mark Dube!

The flop came [10s][3s][3c], Dube bet 85,000, and Raines called.

The turn card double-paired the board with the [10h], Dube checked, Raines bet 110,000, and Dube thought for a little while before he moved all in for about 230,000.

Raines thought for a while before he folded, and Dube took the pot. Ramos said he folded a three, which would have been good for trip threes. But Dube mucked his cards, so Ramos won’t know if trip threes would have been good enough to win the pot.
