Sean Troha Completes Hat Trick After Winning $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship

Sean Troha Wins EV24 $10k PLO HiLo 8 or Better

While winning three World Series of Poker bracelets over time is impressive, winning them in consecutive years is simply astounding.

That's exactly what Sean Troha did after winning his third bracelet in three years by overcoming a 259-player field and defeating Tyler Brown heads up in Event #24: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship.

In addition to the bracelet, Troha also took home $536,713 for his efforts here inside the Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas.

Winner's Reaction

"I'm still kind of in shock," Troha explained shortly after winning the bracelet. "I'm trying to make plans for the celebration, which will be muted. It all happened so fast."

Troha, who entered Day 3 as the short stack, said he was fortunate enough to double up a couple of times at the beginning of the tournament but otherwise remained a fairly unassuming presence.

"Those two double-ups were crucial, obviously. But I had really good hands (in those spots). There wasn't too much variance in my stack until about three or four-handed. I was just lucky enough to come out on top."

As far as making it four bracelets in a row, Troha said, "I imagine I'll be back next year, God willing. And the rest of this series. I'll be in almost any PLO event."

Day 3 Action

Thirteen hopefuls entered Day 3 looking to add a bracelet, and in many cases, another bracelet to their collection. Of the remaining players, six were already bracelet winners, with 16 between them. As mentioned, Troha entered Day 3 as the short stack but got off to a hot start after doubling up twice in succession on the first hands of the day.

The other short stacks didn't fare as well, as Sean Winter, Magnus Edengren, and Jonathan Cohen were all eliminated before the first break of the day.

Brown entered the final table as the chip leader and immediately made his presence known after eliminating Joshua Thibodaux in an aces vs. aces confrontation that left Brown with trips.

Shortly after Luis Velador made his exit in eighth place, Brown would claim another final table casualty by eliminating four-time bracelet winner Brad Ruben with a rivered straight. Tsz Shing made the best he could of the nine big blinds he entered the final table with, but eventually fell in sixth place.

Despite entering Day 3 as the chip leader, Robert Tanita found himself short on the final table after Joao Simao doubled through him. Unsurprisingly, Brown would be the one to bust Tanita shortly thereafter.

Yuri Dzivielevski was largely absent in large pots but managed to double through the seemingly unstoppable Brown. However, Brown wouldn't be denied, and he got his revenge on the Brazilian poker phenom a short while later to claim his fourth elimination at the final table.

Tyler Brown
Tyler Brown

After a short dinner break, Brown went right back to work and eliminated Simao within a few hands to get to heads-up play. Brown started with a 2:1 chip advantage over Troha and, at one point, extended that lead to 3:1.

A key hand occurred to shift momentum in Troha's favor after he shoved facing a turn barrel from Brown in a bloated pot. Brown ended up folding, and then Troha doubled up through Brown several hands later after catching Brown bluffing.

The final hand occurred when Brown got all in preflop against Troha's kings. Troha improved to a full house, ending the tournament and clinching his third bracelet.
