Congratulations to Chris Roth from Milwaukee, WI who took down our DeepStack Championship Event #38 $800 PLO 8/B (8Max) $75K GTD winning $30,077.
At the beginning of heads-up play, Roth asked Engel if he’d like to chop but was politely shut down.
A short time later, Engel found himself all in and at risk. He had the lead after flopping two pair against Roth who had the nut flush draw as well as the nut low draw. Unfortunately for Engel the club dropped on the turn and he would find no help on the river.
This is Roth’s first live tournament win and second largest score which takes his career earnings over $210,000.
