Day 1 Completed
The opening event of the latest partypoker US Online Series is officially in the books, and after over ten hours of play, it was Yong “IReadYrSoul” Kwon, who emerged on top of a stacked final table, taking home $19,756.88 for his efforts.
“Sarmadi3” would extend his chip lead from there, but when play got down to five handed, eventual runner up Sanjeev "sandman9876" Datta started to make his move. First, he did nearly all the work involved in busting “Core4” in fifth place.
Then, Datta would string together a series of small pots, before he eventually busted “sarmadi3” in fourth place.
Kwon would then knock out Jon “Jetsfan411” Borenstein in third place, but he still started heads up play with a big disadvantage to Datta. However, he was able to turn it around rather quickly, sealing the event not long after that.
