Igor Tretyakov, 2022 PPO Event 2 champion

Event 2 of the 2022 Pinktober Poker Open had a $1,100 buy-in, a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool, and a two-day structure. It created a tough final table, and Igor Tretyakov came out on top with the outright win for $18,460.

The tournament drew 56 entries to create a prize pool worth $54,320 and the last seven players were set to make some money. They played down to the final table, lost two players after a long grind, and a tough group of players returned for Day 2. Ken Fishman bagged the biggest stack but it would be no cake walk to a win.

Doug Marro was an early exit on Day 2 then the last six players settled in with their deep stacks and slow structure. Former Tampa Poker Classic Main Event champ Matthew Leecy broke the stalemate with a sixth-place finish followed by Deborah Farmer, Aaron Thivyanathan, and Kevin Blewitt.

Tretyakov and Fishman were heads-up with Fishman holding the lead but it did not last long. Tretyakov took the lead and all the chips with an outright for his first major Tampa to go along with two titles in Hollywood.

Fishman earned $12,310 for his runner-up finish while Tretyakov banked $18,460 and the $1,700 Pinktober Poker Open Championship seat that was added to first place.

Congrats Igor!
