Benjamin Warren

The Tampa Poker Classic Pot Limit Omaha 8 tournament drew a great field with 83 entries making it one of our biggest ever. Benjamin Warren worked his way through a tough field to take the title and $9,330 for the outright win.

Players created a prize pool worth $27,810 with the final table nine all making some money. They quickly played down to the bubble, it took nearly an hour to burst it, and they formed the final table with Austin Marks leading.

The choppy nature of the game meant it was going to take a lot of work to win the tournament.  Four hours of tough play came to an end when Warren moved his way from the middle of the pack to top when he defeated Marks heads-up for the title.

Congratulations to Benjamin and good luck the rest of the series.

Brandon Byars

The Winter Poker Open $250 Bankroll Builder continued the great turnouts of the series so far with 236 entries wiping out the $10,000 guarantee early. It came down to a tough final table and Brandon Byars took the title along with $5,904 after a six-way deal.

They combined to create a prize pool worth $37,360 with the last 24 players getting paid. They burst the money bubble before the late dinner break and quickly formed the final table. In addition to Byars, other top players at the final table included Fernando Rodriguez, Eric Walling, and Ryan Hogan.

After Kostas Kalathakis was eliminated in seventh place, the six remaining players made a deal for the rest of the prize money. Byars was the big stack at the time and earned the WPO win plus his $5,904 payday.

Congrats Brandon and thanks to everyone for another great tournament.
