Event #7 £25,000 PLO has come to a conclusion at the British Poker Open with Sam Soverel ending another event as Day 1 chip leader with 849,000. Soverel is currently holding a mammoth lead in the British Poker Open title leaderboard, and with this being his fourth final table of the series that has yielded one win, he hopes to becomes the first player to win two titles this series.
It won’t be an easy task for Soverel because standing in his way is George Wolff (650,000), Stephen Chidwick (618,000), and Ben Tollerene (133,000). Wolff is riding a wave of momentum after winning Event #2 £10,000 PLO just under a week ago. After holding the chip lead for the majority of the day, Wolff relented it in the late stages but is still nursing a second place stack.
Third overall is Chidwick who won the 2018 U.S. Poker Open title and has three cashes at the British Poker Open. Fourth overall is Tollerene who is at his first British Poker Open final table and will be looking add to his trophy case that includes a 2018 U.S. Poker Open title.
The remaining four players are all that remains from the 15-entrant field, and when play resumes tomorrow, they’ll be on money bubble. Third place will earn £60,000, while a runner-up finish will see them pocket £112,500. However, it is the first-place prize of £202,500 that each of the final four players will be aiming for, along with the title of Champion, and being in the British Poker Open winner’s club that currently includes Soverel and Wolff, as well as Luc Greenwood, Paul Newey, Sam Greenwood, and Sergi Reixach.
