Yesterday LearnWPT had not one but TWO Instructors battling it out under the bright PokerGO lights.
Take a look at how LuckyChewy and Tony fared….
LuckyChewy competed for his second WSOP bracelet and an impressive $1.4 million first prize at the World Series of Poker 50K buy-in High Roller.
Chewy started out third in chips against this tough final table line up:
Final Table Line Up:
Seat 1: LuckyChewy – 5,615,000 (47 big blinds)
Seat 2: Nick Petrangelo – 4,100,000 (34 big blinds)
Seat 3: Ben Heath – 7,630,000 (64 big blinds)
Seat 4: Chance Kornuth – 5,000,000 (42 big blinds)
Seat 5: Sam Soverel – 7,540,000 (63 big blinds)
Seat 6: Dmitry Yurasov – 3,660,000 (31 big blinds)
After many creative and interesting plays, Chewy and Ben Heath got heads-up for the bracelet.
The final hand began with a Button raise from Chewy and Heath three-betting his A♣J♠. Chewy four-bet shoved for 56 big blinds with A♦K♥ and Heath called.
Heath flopped a pair on the J♥5♦3♣ flop to take the lead in the hand. The T♥ turn made things a bit iffy for him, but a blank T♦ on the river guaranteed Heath the bracelet and Chewy walked away with a whopping $917,232 payday and a great start to the summer tournament season!

Tony Dunst competed to add WPT TOC victor to his resume along with a $440K first prize during the Baccarat Crystal WPT Tournament of Champions Final Table at the HyperX eSports Arena.
Tony started 3rd in chips against this group of WPT Champions:
Final Table Line Up:
Seat 1: Simon Lam – 359,000 (45 big blinds)
Seat 2: Nick Schulman – 239,000 (30 big blinds)
Seat 3: Ole Schemion – 1,871,000 (234 big blinds)
Seat 4: Griffin Paul – 308,000 (39 big blinds)
Seat 5: Ryan Tosoc – 549,000 (69 big blinds)
Seat 6: Tony Dunst – 475,000 (59 big blinds)
After a grueling final table, Tony and Ole Schemion were heads-up for the Champions Cup.
The final hand began with Schemion raising to 60,000 from the Button, Tony 3-betting to 250K, and Schemion calling. Tony checked the T♠J♥K♥ flop and Schemion bets 200,000 and gets called. Tony check-raised all-in on the 4♣ turn, Schemion snap-called.
Tony put himself at at risk with his K♣5♦ hand and was unfortunately drawing dead against Schemion’s flopped straight and flush draw with Q♠9♠. The meaningless T♦ lands on the river and Tony is eliminated in second-place with a $250,265 payday.
