Kruk Wins PCA $25K While Seymour Finishes Third
It was a miracle comeback for Christopher Kruk who made it heads up against Jonathan Jaffe. Jaffe started heads-up play with 180 big blinds to the seven big blinds of Kruk. After multiple double-ups, the heads-up match swung into Kruk’s favour and eventually Jaffe got it all in with pocket fours against the pocket jacks of Kruk. The board ran out true for Kruk and he won the pot and captured the victory for $836,350.
Another story in the tournament was the run of ex-NFL player Richard Seymour. Seymour has been a staple in the Bahamas the last couple of years and he made a deep run in this event. Seymour managed to make the final table, finishing third for $376,360 after his ran into the pocket queens of Jaffe.
