2019 Seminole Hard Rock WPTDeepStacks Tampa Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, Florida Event 3 $360 Pot Limit Omaha 8/Big O (Re-Entry) Entries: 35 Prize Pool: $10,500 June 6, 2019
The WPTDeepStacks Tampa series hit the second day on the schedule and we continue to bring you a steady dose of non-hold’em games. On Thursday it was a $360 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha 8/Big O mix and Ramses Rosa won the second SHR Tampa title of his career.
Tampa loves Omaha and the tournament drew 35 entries on weekday afternoon to create a prize pool worth $10,500. Several of our top players joined the field including Scott Anderson, Wally Maddah, and Event 1 champ Mario De La Puente.
After a long grind, they made the final table and into the money with four getting paid. They played it all the way out and Rosa earned $4,620 plus the guitar trophy after defeating Michael Bozeman heads-up.
This is the second time Rosa took home a title and his first since 2011. That one came in an Omaha 8 game so look out for him when we run the next. Rosa picked up the biggest cash of his career last week when he banked more than $20,000 for a fourth-place finish in the Memorial Day weekend $150 Big Stack Special.
Event 3 results:
1st: Ramses Rosa – $4,620 + Guitar trophy 2nd: Michael Bozeman – $2,625 3rd: Doug Arcadi – $1,890 4th: Ronald Brown – $1,365

Event 3 continues on its trek to the next WPTDeepStacks Tampa champion but the live updates team is calling it a night. There are two tables remaining with a little work to reach the final table, and then hit the money bubble with five remaining.
Later tonight they will divide up the $10,500 and someone will walk away with the guitar trophy. We will post the results first thing in the morning and announce the winner.
