Although play stalled with 4 remaining, once the dam burst again, the tournament picked up speed and within just a half hour the whole thing was over with Gerry Arbour emerging as the champion of Event 3, the $100 + $10 Roll the Dice Mixed Game 8-Max event in the World Cup of Cards.
Heads up action was between Gerry and Niko Ghag, and Niko had a dominant chip lead for a long (relatively speaking) period of time, but Gerry managed to find a double up in a NL Hold’em hand and then to take down the whole tournament one hand later in a 5-Card PLO hand.
The preflop action involved a small raise, and then pot-pot which put Niko all in, and the cards were flipped:
The flop was huge: to put Gerry well into the lead and then the on the turn and river brought no miracles for Niko and Gerry took the top prize.
Event 3 Champion: Gerry Arbour, $1,940
