Event 14 of the 2022 Lucky Hearts Poker Open was the $600 Six-Max No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry). A field of 392 entries produced a prize pool of $205,800, more than quadrupling the guarantee. Emerging victorious was Nicholas Verderamo, winning the tournament outright for $38,600.

For Verderamo it’s another score to add to the recent hot streak that he has been on.

“I flew in this morning after chopping a big tournament in Maryland last night, but I gave up the trophy in that deal,” Verderamo said afterward. “So I’m pretty happy with how things went today. This was a great tournament. Six-max is so much fun to play and obviously, I’m happy with the result. ”
