Thomas Clements Jr, WPO Event 1 Champion

The 2019 Winter Poker Open came flying out of the gates on the first day and put up huge numbers. The first event of the series was a $160 buy-in No Limit Hold’em game that packed the room. After a long day at the tables, Thomas Clements Jr took home the title, the Guitar Trophy, and $15,610 after a five-was deal was struck at the final table.

The tournament drew an incredible 653 entries to blast the $50,000 guaranteed prize pool all the way up to $81,625. A huge number for the size of the buy-in. The last 65 spots were paid and they hit the money bubble not long after the dinner break.

The final table was formed as the clocked clicked later into the evening and the five remaining players decided to split the remaining prize pool and call it a night. Clements Jr earned the biggest share as the chip leader with Herbert Woodbery, Mitchell King, Karl Manouchakian, and Ryan Basile part of the deal.

It was a fantastic start to the series and a great omen for the next 11 days.

Robbie Godbey, Event 1 champion

(Tampa, Florida) – The 2019 WPTDeepStacks Tampa series kicked off on June 5 with a big, multi-day tournament the produced a great turnout. The $360 buy-in tournament beat its $250,000 Guarantee with more than one thousand entries and local Robbie Godbey was the player posing with the guitar trophy at the end before he collected $31,000 for the title.

Event 1 featured seven starting flights and it all built up to the huge day on Saturday afternoon. All flights combined to put 1,012 entries into the tournament and the prize pool grew to $303,600 by the time registration closed.

Of those 1,012 entries, we had 155 survive their opening flight to return on Sunday for Day 2. Former SHR Tampa winner Scott Caracciolo had the biggest stack coming back but his day did not go as expected and he had to settle for a 29th place finish.

The field quickly hit the money with 102 getting paid. The hand-for-hand process was quick and painless for all but one. David Yo’s AsTc could not beat Jermaine Gerlin’s AdQs to send him out on the bubble.

There was no slowdown throughout the day and Event 1 was down to its final table before the dinner break came around. Several of the last nine players took turns at top of the counts among those nine players including Gerlin, Shadrach Tercy, and Romel “Romeo” Huelga. Godbey hovered in the middle of the pack until he went on a heater.

With seven players remaining, Godbey wrestled control of the chips with more than 5 million, more than a million better than second position Tercy. The day was getting late and the last seven players were ready to call it a night.

On the last break of the day, they negotiated and reached an agreement for an ICM division of the remaining prize pool. Godbey took the lion’s share of the money and nearly doubled his career earnings total with this $31,000 payday. In addition to the prize money, Godbey also won a $1,100 seat into the 2019 WPTDeepStacks Tampa $3,00,000 Guarantee Main Event kicking off on June 13.

Congratulations to Robbie and thanks to our local favorites and out of town friends for making the opening event such a great success.

Austin Jeffords

It folded around to Austin Jeffords in middle position and he moved all in for 650,000. Robbie Godbey called next to act and the rest of the table folded.

“You have anything good,” Jeffords asked.

“Nope,” Godbey replied.

Godbey: QcJc
Jeffords: Ad9d

Jeffords was ahead and stayed that way on the 7h4d3d turn. He took away diamond outs from Godbey, the 4c turn changed nothing, but Godbey hit the Qh river to send Jeffords out in eighth place.

Robbie Godbey – 2,900,000 (19 bb)
Austin Jeffords – Eliminated in 8th Place ($7,181)

It was Huelga up against the queens this time. He flopped one jack on the Js6s2s board, turned trip jacks on the Jh turn, and faded the spade draw on the 9d river to double.

Romel “Romeo” Huelga – 3,150,000 (21 bb)
Robbie Godbey – 2,100,000 (14 bb)
