Anthony Zinno Victorious At WSOP $25k PLO High Roller For $1,122,196

Anthony Zinno Victorious At WSOP $25k PLO High Roller For $1,122,196Anthony Zinno has continued his phenomenally successful 2015 after taking down WSOP Event #60: $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller for a massive $1,122,196 payday. Combined with his other tournament victories and cashes, the US pro has now earned $3,485,770 in 2015, as well as 6,488 CardPlayer POY points, placing him firmly ahead of Joe Kuether (3,778) a long way back in second place, and Jason Mercier (3,520) in third. After winning his fourth tournament title of the year and the biggest score of his career, Anthony Zinno commented:
“But I’ve only been playing professionally eight years, my wins could just be me running above expected value. I hope maybe in five or 10 years to be among the ranks of a Daniel Negreanu and those people who put their heart, blood, sweat, tears, and everything into this game. But not yet. I haven’t done my part yet, but I intend to.”
The $25k Pot Limit Omaha High Roller event attracted 175 players to create a prize pool worth $4,156,250, with some of the notable pros subsequently seeing a return on their investment including Ben Sulsky in 18th ($40,357), Mike Gorodinsky in 17th ($40,357) David Chiu in 13th ($58,436), and Talal Shakerchi in 10th ($89,234).
On Day 3, the final table was then reached with Zinno eventually making his way past such talent as Shaun Deeb (8th), Alexander Kostritsyn (7th), Ismael Bojang (6th), Juha Helppi (5th) and Christian Harder (4th), before finally overcoming Thailand’s Pakinai Lisawad heads-up to claim his first ever WSOP bracelet. Commenting on his impressive victory, Zinno explained:
“This is certainly my best day as a poker pro. And it was made even better by winning it in a game I love which is PLO and also against a very skilled final table, which is something where I can take extra pride in that.”
Final Table Results:
1 Anthony Zinno – $1,122,196
2 Pakinai Lisawad – $693,553
3 Stian Usterud – $456,522
4 Christian Harder – $332,998
5 Juha Helppi – $247,754
6 Ismael Bojang – $187,571
7 Alexander Kostritsyn – $144,305
8 Shaun Deeb – $112,675
