Lauren Roberts outlasted a field of 91 runners to win Event #3 $10,000 NL at the 2019 US Poker Open at the Aria Casino in Las Vegas. Roberts outlasted a tough final table to win $218,400. Sean Winter made his third-straight final table, but he busted in fifth place. Stevie Chidwick made another final table, but he took third place.


Swimming with sharks. Lauren Roberts has been there before. She's no stranger to the dangers and she finally took one down. Roberts outlasted a crazy final table that included Sean Winter, Brandon Adams, Stevie Chidwick, Koray Aldemir, and Ralph Wong to become the first woman to win a USPO title.

The US Poker Open at the Aria Casino in Las Vegas continued with Event #3 $10,000 buy-in NL. This one attracted 91 runners and a prize pool worth $910K. Only the top 13 places paid out.

Rodger Johnson bubbled off the final table in seventh place. Also cashing in USPO Event #3.... Jerry Robinson, Alex Foxen, Seth Davies, Erik Seidel, Sean Perry, and Maning Loeser.

The final table in Event #3 included Ralph Wong, Sean Winter, Stevie Chidwick, Lauren Roberts, Brandon Adams, and Koray Aldemir.

Wong, Winter, and Adams were the first three to bite the dust. None of them got a chance to sample the cheesecake at the final three, which paid out at least $113K.

Chidwick advanced to his second final table this year. He took down back-to-back events last year, and he kicked off this year with a big win. Roberts was able to keep him away from the first-place booty. Chidwick bounced in third place, which set up a heads-up bout between German pro Koray Aldemir and Lauren Roberts.

Chidwick added another $113,500 to his bank account. He wakes up and money falls out of the sky for him. That's what happens when you're the GOAT in Vegas.

Aldemir could not pick off Roberts. He busted in second place and had to settle for a runner-up share worth $159,250. Not too shabby, eh?

Roberts binked the tournament, earned her first win, which happened against a deep field. She took home $218,400, but the money didn't mean as much as the overall title. Kudos to Roberts for the breakthrough victory. She earned every cent though, especially because Chidwick is a terminator and considering the way Sean Winter has been playing.

Sean Winter has been on a heater, but he's yet to take down a USPO event this year. The closest was a runner-up finish in Event #1. He knew he was playing for second in that one because Chidwick activated GOAT MODE and it was all over baby. Winter jumped into $10K PLO at Event #2, which he also went deep in with a sixth-place finish.

You can add a fifth-place finish to his list of 2019 USPO accolades. If you're keeping score at home, Winter posted 2-6-5 this far. Chidwick has a 1-x-3, which is not too shabby, eh?
