The final table was short and, for "jedimaster82" at least, sweet in WCOOP-73-H: $10,300 PLO [6-Max, Main Event]. The Sweden-based player took down the 135-entry field for a $283,368 first-place prize following about three hours of Day 3 play.

A long-time high-stakes cash player who has specialized in PLO since 2005, jedimaster82 has managed to remain anonymous over the years.

Here, he triumphed over a final table that included Andras "probirs" Nemeth, Laszlo "omaha4rollz" Bujtas and Ola "Odd_Oddsen" Amundsgard, whom he defeated heads up.

Final Table Results

2Ola "Odd_Oddsen" AmundsgardNorway$217,808
4Laszlo "omaha4rollz" BujtasHungary$128,683
5Andras "probirs" NemethHungary$98,911

Nemeth came in seeking his third title of the series and second in PLO off the back of winning the $5K event. He secured the chip lead early but everything went south in the third level of the day for him, as he started with more than 80 blinds and ended it with zero.

First, Nemeth had his aces cracked by Bujtas' 17-out wrap. Then, Bujtas finished him with single-suited aces over single-suited kings.

Bujtas was unable to maintain his momentum though, losing a huge chunk to jedimaster82 when he called down in position on a monotone board then potted river when it paired the board and jedimaster82 checked. jedimaster82 came back with a shove that Bujtas laid down to, and suddenly, the Swedish player had almost half of the chips four-handed.

It would be veteran Norwegian pro Amundsgard who made it heads up with jedimaster82 after mostly just maintaining his stack throughout the day. He took a brief lead in the match but jedimaster82 completely took over after that, winning a few big pots to open up a fairly wide lead.

Finally, Amundsgard rolled with a strong ace-high hand containing a pair of queens, only to see jedimaster82 show up with single-suited aces. The board didn't bring much sweat and jedimaster82 had wrapped things up for $283K and the title in less time than it takes your average televised movie to run.

Ola "Odd_Oddsen" Amundsgard Eliminated in 2nd Place ($217,808)

Ola "Odd_Oddsen" Amundsgard potted the button, "jedimaster82" three-bet, and two more raises got Amundsgard all in for about 5 million.

Amundsgard: {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{10-Spades}
jedimaster82: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{5-Hearts}

Things were grim for Amundsgard after the {4-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} flop, and the {3-Clubs} turn left him in need of a queen to keep the tournament going. The {10-Diamonds} didn't do it.
