Tampa, Florida — Alex Bury needed just about eight hours to score an outright win in Event 6 of the Winter Poker Open, a $250 buy-in Deep Stack Turbo tournament. For his efforts, Bury was rewarded with $9,133 and the property’s token guitar trophy.

The last-chance event drew a field of 145 entries easily surpassing the $20,000 guarantee. The $30,450 prize pool paid the top 18 finishers. Joining Bury in the money were Richard Doss (13th, $533) and Christine Holubeck (14th, $533). At the final table, Bury outlasted the likes of Nick Costarelis (ninth, $685), Cheri Beatty (sixth, $1,523) and heads-up opponent David Jackson who earned $5,024 for his second-place finish.

Bury is 32 years and resides here in Tampa where he works as a recruiting manager. Each of his now seven career cashes have come at the Seminole Hard Rock, but tonight’s victory marks his largest to date.
