On Sunday, another fast-growing online series on the partypoker US Network in New Jersey reached a sizzling conclusion as the WPT Online Poker Open, which combined fields from partypoker US, Borgata Poker and BetMGM Poker, was on tap. The Main Event drew a field of 868 entries, generating a lofty $317,540 prize pool which surpassed it's $300k guarantee. It marked the largest ever event for our New Jersey online poker network surpassing the $302,100 prize pool for the $320 buy-in partypoker US Network $250K GTD back on March 29.
In the end, it was David "TheKing411" Coleman who emerged victorious for a payday of $56,586. In addition to the first-place prize, he also earned a WPT Championship Trophy and an $11,000 prize package which includes entry into the next WPT in-person live event, the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic, which will take place at Bellagio in Las Vegas ($10,400 buy-in), as well as $600 in cash towards travel expenses.
This victory marks Coleman's second online Main Event title within a few weeks as last month he took down the $400 partypoker US Network Online Series Main Event for $21,233 after a heads-up deal. Incredulously, Coleman also won the Borgata Spring Poker Open Online Series Main Event worth $28,605 back in April, making it a monster quarter for the man from Livingston, NJ.
A total of 136 satellite players qualified for the event, including Coleman, who won his seat in a $45 qualifier a few hours before play started on Sunday.
“It’s a great tournament and I definitely enjoy playing it," Coleman told WPT officials after the win. "I like the convenience of online and the volume you're able to put in."
The newly crowned winner entered the final table second in chips and while chips were easily swinging from one side of the table to another with the fast structure, he kept building and eventually got himself to the final three. He didn't take long to take over the lead after he flopped a full house and got fully paid by then chip leader "jbg82" who caught a backdoor flush to give Coleman most of his chips.
The heads-up match was reached the next level and it was all over within a couple of hands when Coleman and jbg82" both flopped a flush to put all their chips in the middle but Coleman had a higher one to win it all.
