While the huge Event 1 field was playing down to a winner, there were two more tournaments on the schedule including the evening $150 buy-in, $10,000 Guarantee No Limit Hold’em trophy event. After a long evening, Gregory Paryani earned the title along with $2,267.
The tournament started at 6 pm and featured 20-minute levels to keep things moving a brisk pace. Even so, the money bubble lasted for more than 90 minutes and 35 hands. The money bubble burst, the hit the final table, and the last five players made a deal to chop up the remaining prize pool.
Paryani officially won the tournament but Anthony Sementelli took the guitar trophy home as part of the early morning deal. A great way to finish off the week and prepare for the homestretch of the series.

Three Winter Poker Open trophies were awarded on Day 7 with the third coming in the wee hours of the Thursday morning. Event 6 began at 6pm on Wednesday and nearly 11 hours later it was E.J. McVetty taking top honors.
The evening tournament drew exactly 90 entries into the $250 Big Stack No Limit Hold’em event to create a prize pool of $17,250. Clear past the $15,000 guarantee and the last nine players earned a piece.
The tournament moved along at a nice clip thanks to the 25-minute blinds but the big starting stacks gave them a lot of room to make moves. It took them more than eight hours to work their way down towards the final table where Michael DeMahy brought a huge chip lead.
They felt each other out for an hour before the floodgates opened with eliminations. McVetty almost became one of them when he lost a huge pot to Roseli Godbey to leave him with crumbs and seven player remaining. He ran his few big blinds back, mostly thanks to a timely two outer against Michael DeMahy, and he ran over the table once he took the lead.
Godbey laddered up her short stack to third place when she was sent to the payout desk. McVetty and DeMahy worked out a deal to evenly divide the remaining prize pool leaving the $1,650 WPO Championship to McVetty and his big chip lead.
Event 6 results:
1st: E.J. McVetty $4,657 + $1,650 Championship seat 2nd: Michael DeMahy – $4,656 3rd: Roseli Godbey – $2,070 4th: Alan Phillips – $1,553 5th: David Kolaskey – $1,208 6th: Anthony Swedberg – $1,035 7th: Wayne Brown – $863 8th: Kent Dokendorf – $690 9th: Joseph Abdo – $518
$250 Big Stack NL Hold’em (Re-Entry) Level 22: 8,000/16,000 with a 2,000 ante
After Roseli Godbey was eliminated, the E.J McVetty and Michael DeMahy quickly worked out a deal to chop up the remaining prize pool. McVetty held the vast majority of chips and they split the money down the middle with McVetty taking the WPO Championship seat as the champion.
$250 Big Stack NL Hold’em (Re-Entry) Level 21: 5,000/10,000 with a 1,000 ante Players Remaining: 6 of 90
David Kolaskey opened to 23,000 from early position and E.J. McVetty called next to act. Wayne Brown called all-in from the small blind for 22,000 and the two live players checked the flop.
McVetty bet out on the turn to get a fold from Kolaskey and Brown’s was in trouble against McVetty’s flopped trip fours with . The former SHRP champ found nothing on the river and was eliminated in seventh place.
E.J. McVetty – 470,000 (47 bb) Wayne Brown – Eliminated in 7th place ($863)
$250 Big Stack NL Hold’em (Re-Entry) Level 20: 4,000/8,000 with a 1,000 ante Players Remaining: 7 of 90
Michael DeMahy opened to 20,000 from under the gun and Kent Dokendorf called next to act for less. Action folded to E.J. McVetty in the big blind and he moved all-in for ~125,000. DeMahy quickly called and the hands were tabled.
“I have two overs!” Dokendorf laughed.
McVetty: DeMahy: Dokendorf:
DeMahy had a chance for the double KO while the flop added an open-ended straight draw for Dokendorf. But it was the turn that was the surprise to send McVetty into the lead. The river was no help to send Dokendorf out in eighth while sending a big double up to McVetty.
E.J. McVetty – 270,000 (34 bb) Michael DeMahy – 300,000 (38 bb) Kent Dokendorf – Eliminated in 8th place ($690)
