It's always nice to see famous (and wealthy) poker players taking part in tournaments with small buy-ins... and it's even more fantastic to see them come out victorious at the end of it all!
On Monday morning, Phil Hellmuth had overcome a field of 254 entries to win a $1,000 buy-in tournament in Pittsburgh! The 13-time WSOP bracelet winner defeated no one else that David "ODB" Baker in heads-up play to claim his first "major" win since 2012!
1 Phil Hellmuth $54,414
2 David Baker $40,813
3 Joseph Couden $19,788
4 Matt Glantz $17,315
5 Derek Dempsey $14,841
6 Michael Marzano $12,368
The Pittsburg Poker Open, an annual tournament series that was played over 19 days at Rivers Casino, also featured a high-stakes cash game that was filmed for Poker Night in America. Hellmuth, Baker, Jennifer Tilly, Tom Schneider, Matt Rusell were amongst the big names that participated. However, we will probably have to wait for some Poker Night in America-episodes to air before getting to know any results.
