The five-handed action started off slowly but exploded when Anthony Zinno and Sam Soverel played a big pot. Zinno raised before the flop with ace-king-ten-seven, three spades, and Soverel defended the big blind with jack-ten-seven-six with two clubs. The flop brought out six-eight-nine with two spades giving both players the nut straight while Zinno had the flush draw to go along with and Soverel a higher straight draw. After the money went in on the flop, Soverel hit a seven on the turn for a higher straight and after a brick river, Zinno was eliminated in fifth place.
Kahle Burns was next to bust when he, as the short stack, called a raise from Soverel with queen-jack-four-three with two clubs. The flop brought ace-ten-five with two diamonds and Burns potted which was called by Soverel with queen-ten-seven-six. The turn brought a four, and Burns’ remaining chips went into the middle eliciting a quick call from Soverel. Another ace hit on the river and Soverel’s pair of tens was enough to take down this pot.
George Wolff, winner of the £10,000 Pot Limit Omaha British Poker Open event, busted in third place. With fewer than 10 big blinds, Wolff ended up all in with ace-queen-ten-nine – three diamonds – against Sean Winter’s jack-nine-eight-seven – two clubs – on a ten-ten-six flop. Wolff was in the lead with trips but Winter hit a straight on the turn to make a straight. The river didn’t improve Wolff’s hand and he busted in third.
The heads up action started with Winter holding a 2:1 chip lead but that proved to not be enough. On the final hand, Soverel raised pot from the button with jack-nine-six-four and Winter called with ace-king-ten-eight. The flop brought out king-six-six and both players checked after which Winter bet 260,000 on the deuce turn. Soverel raised pot to 1.07 million and Winter took a sip of his wine before calling all in with top pair. Winter did not hit on the river and he was knocked out in second place.

The second Pot-Limit Omaha tournament would raise the stakes to $25,000, and with 34 entrants taking a seat, the prize pool of $850,000 would pay the final five players.
A late influx of entries when registration closed saw Bryn Kenney and Dan Smith make their 2019 Poker Masters debut. With action fast and furious, eliminations occurred at a rapid rate as the likes of John Riordan, Orpen Kisacikoglu, Stephen Chidwick, and Ben Yu were all quickly eliminated once the tournament was down to the final two tables. With soft hand-for-hand in play, Dutchman Jorryt van Hoof would fall short of his third cash of the series falling in eighth to put the final seven players down to one table.
The current Poker Masters Championship Standings leader in Chance Kornuth played a huge pot against Sean Winter, and when his two pair couldn’t beat Winter’s trips, he was down to just one big blind and busted two hands later in seventh. Ben Lamb then took on Winter as well, and committed the remainder of his chips with on a board of but ran into Winter’s for the nut straight. Lamb had outs to hearts, a king or nine, or a ten for the chop, but when the landed on the river, he was the Event #7 bubble boy in sixth place.
The final five players are all guaranteed a $68,000 payday, but it is the $340,000 first-place prize awaiting up top that everyone will be gunning for. The player in prime position to make a run at the Event #7 title of champion is Sean Winter who finished with 2,532,000 in chips – good for nearly half the chips in play. Winter has one cash in Event #9 on the back of his outstanding 2019 U.S. Poker Open where he finished with one win and six final table appearances.
Second overall is George Wolff with 1,145,000 in chips and is at his second Poker Masters final table following his seventh-place in Event #4 on the heels of a first-place and second-place finish in the two Pot-Limit Omaha events at the British Poker Open. In third place on the leaderboard is Sam Soverel with 749,000 in chips and is collecting his fourth cash of the series. So far Soverel has finished in fourth, fifth, and sixth place, and with his result in this event, he already sits in second place in the Poker Masters Championship Standings pending results of the other four players at the final table.
Rounding out the final table as the shorter stacks are Anthony Zinno and Kahle Burns. Zinno sits with 458,000 in chips and finished in ninth-place in the first Pot-Limit Omaha tournament, and is now collecting his second cash of the series.
