Ryan Brown, 2023 TPC Champion

The 2023 Tampa Poker Classic Championship was the big game on the schedule and the $1,700 buy-in tournament drew 625 tough players. After a long weekend battling for the title, Ryan Brown took the top spot for $148K after denying Fred Paradis his third title of the series.

The tournament featured a $500,000 guarantee that turned into a prize pool worth $937,500. We had 156 players return for Day 2, 79 made the money, and 20 were still around when they bagged up for an extra day.

Brown held the lead for much of the final table but lost it against Paradis. They were in a dead heat when heads-up play began and the two decided to even out the top two payouts. The lead changed hands but Brown was finally able to knock Paradis out with a full house version a straight.

Paradis earned $138,010 while Brown was crowned our 2023 TPC Champion and he took home $148,010 along with the TPC guitar trophy.

Congrats Ryan!

Ryan Brown

With the flop reading QsJh8c, Ryan Brown checked, Fred Paradis bet 400,000 and Brown called. The turn was 9d, Brown checked again, Paradis bet 1,200,000 and Brown called.

The river was Qc and Brown checked one last time. Paradis bet 1,500,000 and Brown moved all in. Paradis double-checked his cards and called at risk for 6,700,000.

Paradis: Tc7h
Brown: Qd8h

Paradis turned a jack-high straight but Brown rivered a full house queens full of eights to take the pot and the Championship.

Before heads-up play began, they adjusted the payouts, and here are the final results.

1st: Ryan Brown – $148,010
