The U.S. Poker Open Event #12: $50,000 No Limit Hold ’em ended with Sean Winters in first. His victory marked the end of an exciting high-stakes series in which the side events were all set at $10k and the quality of play was top notch.
Winter beat a tough final table that included Sam Soverel, Jonathan Little, and Jason Koon. Little tweeted a picture of his chip stack going into the final table. The stack looked healthy, but was all gone soon. Little left in 4th place.
Winter’s final match up was with Stephen Chidwick.
The last hand of the day saw Winter get it all in on the river with T♣6♣ against Chidwick’s Qx4x. The board gave Winter two pair on the river, beating Chidwick’s pair of queens for all the gold.
Winter won $756,000 for his first place finish.

David Peters tops the leaderboard
After winning three of the twelve events, and cashing in one more, it’s no surprise that David Peters ended up winning the leaderboard. Decisively.
While Sean Winter’s last minute win catapulted him to second place on the board, Peters still led by over 150 points.
For his good play and better luck, Peters ended up taking home an additional $50,000 and the gold eagle trophy. He celebrated his victory with a picture mimicking Kobe Bryant’s locker room shot. He captioned the picture with “We did it Kobe.”
PokerGO offered their congratulations in slightly more staid terms.
“Congratulations to David Peters, winner of the 2021 U.S. Poker Open!” PokerGO’s Twitter team wrote. “Peters collects the $50,000 cash prize and will receive the coveted Golden Eagle trophy.”
