The $250,000 PCA Really Hot shot has reached a conclusion and Sam Greenwood is the boss after he crushed Jean-Noel Thorel in heads-up play to win $3,276,760.
Greenwood outlived a field of 39 players to bring back home the top award at the 2023 Poker Stars Caribbean Experience. The enormous score adds to Greenwood’s lifetime profit of more than $26,000,000, as indicated by The Hendon Horde. Thorel won $2,317,100 for his runner up finish from the all-out prize pool of $9,498,060.
David Yan completed in third for $1,472,200 and Byron Kaverman won $1,092,300 for fourth spot. Artur Martirosian and Justin Bonomo balanced the six changing out finishers with $854,800 and $664,900, separately.
“Great! That is putting it mildly. I’m feeling truly drained yet truly blissful,” Greenwood said about how the success caused him to feel in a meeting.
Any $250,000 hot shot will be an intense field, however Greenwood tracked down his direction as far as possible with a restricted difficult situation.
“Truly, I had a great deal of trickier spots on my most memorable projectile. On my subsequent shot, I was getting very great cards. I was winning all of my preflop all-ins. It was all smooth. There were some promising and less promising times, yet it wasn’t so extreme.”
Greenwood isn’t finished with the PCA right now — he anticipates hopping in the $100,000 Hot shot tomorrow for an opportunity at another large score.
Last Table Activity
The last eight players got back to Baha Blemish Resort for the Day 3 finale, and Chris Brewer was quick to go in eighth spot when his expert four couldn’t get up to speed to Martirosian’s pocket jacks. Brewer changed out once during the series — a 28th-place finish in the PCA Headliner for $38,900.
Brewer’s disposal set up the competition for a delayed cash bubble that endured two hours and highlighted careful play with no reasonable short stack. The air pocket at last burst when Orpen Kisacikoglu got his short stack in with two guests, just to see his top sets of experts tumble to Thorel’s rivered straight. Kisacikoglu changed out two times at the PCA, both in $50,000 hot shots and both in runner up.
The beat bubble opened down play a little, and the more limited stacks took their actions. The close to go was Bonomo in 6th spot when his sovereign lift couldn’t catch to Greenwood’s pocket fives. This was Bonomo’s third money of the series, which incorporated an in front of the pack finish in the 8-gave $25,000 Hot shot occasion for $574,530.
Not long after Bonomo’s exit, Martirosian got it in with a fit expert six, however Greenwood was holding up with pocket lords to send him to the rail. Martirosian changed out two times at the PCA, including a third-place finish in the Headliner for $677,400.
The last four players got comfortable, and both Yan and Kaverman found copies to straighten out the chip counts. Be that as it may, Kaverman at last fell in fourth spot when he pushed with pocket tens and ran into Thorel’s pocket jacks. The fourth-place finish was Kaverman’s most memorable money of the series.
Close to go was Yan in third spot, only minutes after the fact. Yan missed the mark and got it in with lord eight, yet Thorel was there back to bust him with pro ten. Yan won the 6-gave $50,000 hot shot before in the PCA for $485,690.
Thorel and Greenwood were passed on to fight it out in heads-up play, and Thorel held the early benefit. In any case, Greenwood immediately retaliated to start to lead the pack subsequent to calling three roads of wagers from Thorel, who turned over a lesser pair. The defining moment came when Thorel got it in with sovereign eight and Greenwood hung on with pocket deuces to get his triumph.
