Fabian Caicedo

Monday afternoon on the 2022 Tampa Winter Poker Open schedule bumped up the Deep Stack buy-in with a $600 buy-in tournament which featured a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool. After a tough final table, Fabian Caicedo walked away with the outright win for $15,925 and the WPO trophy.

Along the way, Caicedo denied Raminder Singh his fourth career Tampa major and his second win in this tournament. Singh won the Tampa Winter Poker Open $600 Deep Stack one-day tournament in 2020 and two more titles during the 2022 WPT Tampa series.

For Caicedo, this is his first major Tampa victory and his second biggest score after the $23,000 he earned for our July Holiday Deep Stacks event in July.

Jordan Joeckel

The Tampa Winter Poker Open $400 Limit Omaha 8 tournament drew 52 entries to beat its $10,000 guarantee and create a prize pool worth $17,420. Jordan Joeckel began the final table with the shortest stack but caught a quick double, then rode it to the Event 3 title after a heads-up deal.

While Joeckel needed help to start the final table, Keith Austin had a huge lead at the time. But Patty Verbock went to work chopping down his stack and Austin finished in seventh place.

After four-time Hollywood Omaha champ John Binns was eliminated in third place, Joeckel and Verbock quickly came to terms for dividing up the remaining prize pool.

Verbock earned $4,715 for her runner-up finish while late chip leader Joeckel walked away with $5,165 and the Tampa WPO trophy.
