Event 6: E.J. McVetty Bounces Back to Win Title

2016 Winter Poker Open
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

Event 6
$250 Big Stack No Limit Hold’em
Entries: 90
Prize Pool: $17,250
December 7, 2016

E.J. McVetty, Event 6 Champion

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

E.J. McVetty

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.

1st: E.J. McVetty $4,657 + $1,650 Championship seat
2nd: Michael DeMahy – $4,656

E.J. McVetty opened to 50,000, Michael DeMahy called from the small blind, and Roseli Godbey moved all-in for 54,000 total. Both players called then checked down the 9s8d7d5cKs board and hands were tabled.

McVetty: Kh3d
DeMahy: 4s4c
Godbey: Ac5d

Godbey never improved and the river king sent the pot to McVetty.

$250 Big Stack NL Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 22: 8,000/16,000 with a 2,000 ante

Alan Phillips

Alan Phillips went racing for his last ~200,000 and E.J. McVetty quickly was his opponent.

McVetty: ThTs
Phillips: AcKd

Phillips needed to catch to stay alive but blanked the entire board when it ran out Qc9s6c3d2d to send him out in fourth place.

E.J. McVetty – 810,000 (51 bb)
Alan Phillips – Eliminated in 4th place ($1,553)

David Kolaskey open/shoved for 110,000 and picked up a quick call from chip leader E.J. McVetty.

McVetty: KhKd
Kolaskey: AdJd

Kolaskey caught a piece of the Jh5s3h flop but it wasn’t enough as the board finished with the 2d turn and 3d river to send him out in fifth place.

E.J. McVetty – 590,000 (37 bb)
David Kolaskey – Eliminated in 5th place ($1,208)

Event 6: Anthony Swedberg – 6th Place ($1,035)

Swedberg: Ad3d

The board ran out QdTs6s2sTh and Phillips’ eight played to send Swedberg out in sixth place.

Players Remaining: 6 of 90

Wayne Brown

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 7s4c4d flop.

McVetty bet out on the 3h turn to get a fold from Kolaskey and Brown’s KsKc was in trouble against McVetty’s flopped trip fours with Ad4h. 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)

Event 6: Kent Dokendorf – 8th Place ($690)

$250 Big Stack NL Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 20: 4,000/8,000 with a 1,000 ante
Players Remaining: 7 of 90

Kent Dokendorg

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: 3h3d
DeMahy: 5h5d
Dokendorf: QcJs

DeMahy had a chance for the double KO while the Tc9c6s flop added an open-ended straight draw for Dokendorf. But it was the 3s turn that was the surprise to send McVetty into the lead. The Jh 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)

Players Remaining: 8 of 90

Joseph Abdo

Joseph McVetty open/shoved for 75,000 and Joseph Abdo called for less on the button.

“I have one over,” McVetty said.

McVetty: KdTs
Abdo: QhQd

“Not a good start for me.” Abdo said as the dealer spread the Kc6h4h flop. Abdo missed the 5c turn and 7h river to exit in 9th place.

E.J. McVetty – 120,000 (15 bb)
Joseph Abdo – Eliminated in 9th place ($518)

Event 6: In the Money

$250 Big Stack NL Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 19: 4,000/8,000 with a 1,000 ante
Players Remaining: 9 of 90

After a few orbits of little action, Event 6 hit the money shortly before their next break.

They got there when Scott Riddell called all-in with 6d6c after E.J. McVetty three-bet with QhTh. The Kh5s4s flop was no damage to Riddell but the Qc turn was bad news.

No luck on the As river and the remaining nine players hit the money.

$250 Big Stack NL Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 18: 3,000/6,000 with a 1,000 ante

After a bit of a slow down getting there, the last ten players have formed up as one at the Event 6 final table with Michael DeMahy way out in front.

They still have a little work to get done, only nine of these ten players will take home some of the prize pool.
