PACOOP Event #5 Final Table Results
|9||Vince "FuglyFunGuy" Lestingi||$566|
After quickly losing Lestingi in 9th, there was the first of two double eliminations at the final table. It was eventual runner-up "blue38bomber" who secured this one, when their big slick held up against two dominated hands.
"161joe161" would earn the other double knockout, and it was undoubtedly the most important pot of the tournament for the soon to be winner. They would flop bottom set on a flop that also gave "pokrherface101" top pair, while "pokaroka31"'s overpair was also miles behind.
The two players were fairly even to start heads up play, so they decided to strike a deal. After "161joe161" scored a massive double up with pocket aces, they would keep the pressure on, before securing the title in a coin flip situation. You can read those details right below.
