Germany's Florian Langmann Wins WSOP $3k PLO Hi/Lo (Event #54)

Germany's Florian Langmann Wins WSOP $3k PLO Hi/Lo (Event #54)Germany’s Florian Langmann topped a 474 player field at the $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo (Event #54) to claim the $297,650 first place prize, and collect his country’s fourth bracelet at this year’s WSOP. Florian Langmann now joins George Danzer (2) and Dominik Nitsche (1) as 2014 WSOP title winners.
Florian Langmann, whose biggest score is a runner-up finish at the 2007 EPT London Main Event for $693,625, now boosts his live tournament earnings to $2,316,303. Commenting after his impressive victory, Langmann, said:
“It’s pretty nice (to win) actually, I hear people complain all the time about sixth place and it sucks at the moment. But to win at my first (WSOP) final table is nice. What can I say? I mostly play Pot Limit Omaha (high) but I know a little bit about PLO Hi-Lo. I think most of the players were Limit Omaha Hi-Lo players and it was a good game for me – fun to play. I came to Vegas to make some money and I only made money once in six years.”
Event #54 created a prize pool worth $1,294,020, and amongst the notable players then cashing in at the tournament was George Danzer in 44th ($6,107), Andy Bloch in 25th ($9,291), Eoghan O’Dea in 18th ($11,607), Fabrice Soulier in 15th ($14,648), and Paul Volpe in 13th ($14,648).
At the final table of nine, Florian Langmann then proceeded to eliminate Jonathan Depa in 8th ($30,488), Woody Deck in 7th ($39,506), Antony Lellouche in 6th ($51,670), and Dylan Wilkerson in 3rd ($122,427) to usher in the heads-up phase of the competition against Zach Freeman for the title.
As the final battle commenced, Langmann held a 3-to-1 chip advantage over his American opponent, and just a couple hands later it was all over with Freeman the runner-up for $184,216, and Langmann awarded the gold winner’s bracelet.
Final Table Payouts:
1 Florian Langmann – $297,650
2 Zach Freeman – $184,216
