Tommy Le Conquers $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship

The $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship was the 54th event at the 2017 World Series of Poker.


A total of 428 players took part in this event and at the end of the event; it was the man from the United States Tommy Le who took the championship. By virtue of this win, he claimed the first WSOP gold bracelet of his career.

Apart from winning his first bracelet, Le also became richer by $938,732. He had tough opponents to face at the final table with the likes of two-time bracelet winner Scott Clements and Jason Dewitt also in the fray. Le said that he is not playing the game of poker to make a living. He has reached the final table at the WSOP pot-limit Omaha events for five times. But, had the chance to make it to the heads-up battle only once.

He finished that event in 2nd position and finished in the 3rd position of the event last year. Le said on arriving at the feature table set that he was looking to win it as he did not want to go back with a 6 to 0 score.

This year was a different story for Le. He was happy that he was able to win the event finals at the WSOP. Le is an entrepreneur and says that he is a tough fish. He felt that everyone entered the final table with a new game plan and had done their homework on him. It was totally different from what he was experiencing the previous night. Le said that Scott had a very good game plan in mind and that made it very difficult for him to counter.

Le said that he had a new plan in mind after dinner and this worked out for him very well. The result is there for everyone to see.
