After the party, Guerra came back to see the effects Barbero Nacho
After his victory in Event #7 of the PGT PLO, the Spaniard dethroned the Argentinian as the series’ overall leader.
Guerra’s big-league comeback had an impact on Nacho Barbero.
Once again, it was Lautaro Guerra Cabrerizo. The Spaniard won Event #7: $15,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Bounty, bringing his total winnings from the inaugural Poker Go Tour PLO Series to US$303,000. He also received 15 bounties for an additional $75,000.
Before Friday, Nacho Barbero had been at the top of the list, but now Cabrerizo has taken over and is in excellent position to win the PGT Trophy and the $25,000 championship award. Event #5 was won by Guerra Cabrerizo, who collected $220,400 as his prize money.
Nacho comes in at number two.
How Guerra came out on top
There were 114 participants, and the top 17 finishers split a prize fund of $1,140,000. Cabrerizo and Isaac Kempton, who finished second, played a pivotal hand with 11 players left. Kempton opted to go “bounty hunting” when the short-stacked Damjan Radanov moved all of his chips into the middle of the table with Guerra Cabrerizo already there. When Cabrerizo had a pair of aces and decided to stake his large stack, he amassed a massive advantage.
From that point on, Cabrerizo reigned as the chip leader until the last heads-up showdown with Kempton, when the latter briefly took the lead before being eliminated by the champion’s straight and the American’s three of a kind. Just Hispanic player Johann Ibáez finished in the money, placing fifth with $85,500.
PLO Event #8: $25,000 Event #9, a $2,200 5-Card PLO, will wrap off the tournament on Sunday after Saturday’s championship round.
