2022 Lucky Hearts Poker Open Event 33 Champion Farid Jattin

Event 33 of the 2022 Lucky Hearts Poker Open was the $2,200 Deep Stack Pot Limit Omaha (Re-Entry). A field of 107 entries generated a prize pool of $214,000. The two-day affair and final event on the schedule had 12 players who made it through to Day 2.

When it was all said and done, the 2022 Lucky Hearts Poker Open ended the same way it began, with Farid Jattin emerging victorious. Jattin began the series by winning Event 1 for $306,832 and ended it by winning Event 33 outright for $58,410.

“It feels good to win another one,” Jattin said afterward. “I play a lot of PLO cash games and feel it’s my strength.”

Jattin began Day 2 fourth in chips of the remaining 12 players, was third in chips when the final table of nine players was reached, and went on a tear from there, eliminating the last six players to earn his victory.

“The past couple of years, I’ve been focusing a lot more on the cash games, that type of scene, especially since Covid. I don’t really like the online grind, so I had to make a shift. I really enjoy PLO, and I feel like my talent for tournaments, combined with my creativity in PLO, it comes together really nicely.”
