Kenneth Po

The pot was limped six ways, bringing a flop of JcJh8d.

Kenneth Po, who had been nursing a very short stack, bet his remaining 15,000 from the small blind. Cory Zeidman called from under the gun, Michael Yehudai called from the hijack and Jamicheal Harris called from the cutoff.

The turn was the 5h, Zeidman bet 60,000 and isolated the pot.

“Unless you’re drawing for the low, you’re drawing dead,” said Zeidman, as he showed KhKcQsJsJd for quad jacks.

Po was in fact drawing dead with AhQd10s9h8s, rendering the 10d river moot.

Cory Zeidman  – 700,000 (35 bb)
Kenneth Po  –  Eliminated in 7th Place  ($1,905)

Players Remaining:  7 of 161

Long Nguyen raised from the cutoff, Darin Utley three-bet all in for about 50,000 from the small blind and Nguyen called.

Nguyen:  Ah7c7s2s2h
Utley:  As9d9h7h5d

The flop came Qh10d3h, keeping Nguyen well out in front. The turn was the 9s, however, giving Utley a set of nines to take the lead.

The river delivered the 4h, though, giving Nguyen the nut flush to eliminate Utley in eighth place.

Long Nguyen  –  145,000  (15 bb)
Darin Utley  –  Eliminated in 8th Place  ($1,620)

Registration closed for Event 5 and the turnout created the biggest Big O tournament we’ve ever hosted. The 161 entries easily surpassed the 107 we had during the 2018 Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open and a great indication of the growth of that game.

2022 LHPO – 161 entries
2018 RRPO – 107 entries
2018 SHRPO – 93 entries
2020 LHPO – 87 entries
2019 RRPO – 78 entries

They combined to create a prize pool worth $53,935 with the last 21 players earning some money. A min-cash will walk away with $755 while the Big O champ will earn $13,775 along with the LHPO trophy.
