Sean Winter settled on a runner-up finish in the opening event of the. Stephen Chidwick, last year's overall USPO champ with back-to-back title, kicked off this year's USPO with a bang by winning the first event. Winter got heads-up against Chidwick, but could not outlast the GOAT. Hey, second place ain't too shabby, eh?
Just when we thought we were witnessing another sizzling run by Chidwick, Winter went deep in Event #2. And he went deep in Event #3. And he went deep in Event #4. How deep? All the way deep. After busting early at the other two final tables, Winter took down the Short Deck title.
Event #4 $10K Short Deck NL attracted 42 runners and a prize pool worth $420K. Only the top six places paid out, or the final table. The final six included Winter, David Peters, Seth Davies, Ben Lamb, Ben Yu, and Stevie Chidwick.
Chidwick actually made his third final table through four events. The Brit busted in sixth place. Ben Yu and Ben Lamb were the next two to get sent packing. Ty hit the bricks in fifth place and Lamb busted in fourth place.
Seth Davies got picked off in third place, which set up the heads-up finale between David Peters and Sean Winter. Talk about a tough opponent for Winter.
Peters could not stop the red-hot Winter. He earned $100K for a runner-up share. Not too shabby, eh? Winter banked $151,200 for the win.
