Ken Fishman

Ken Fishman won Event 3 tonight against a strong lineup at the final table that included Jacob Ferro, AJ Kelsall, and his heads-up opponent Aaron Thivyanathan. Fishman persevered to win the top prize money of $21,980 and the WPT trophy. Here is what he had to say after the tournament victory. “It feels great, really good to close one out,” said Fishman.

The final stages of the tournament saw a particularly long slowdown in play at the money bubble and during five-handed action. This is where Fishman dug deep to persevere. “I was just trying to hang in there and survive and wait for a good spot. I just tried to stay patient, it was a lot of trial and error you know for sure,” said Fishman.

“I’m a little tired, but I’m going to play another tournament tomorrow. I’m going to try for another trophy,” said Fishman when he was asked about his plans to celebrate the tournament win.

Fishman is a local regular here at Seminole Hard Rock Tampa, so he was happy to take home the win close to home. “Oh, I love it here, the competition is great, the food is good here, and I love to hang out with all my buddies here, all my friends,” said Fishman.

Here is a look at the final results for the tournament:
