Twenty-five thousand dollar Pot-Limit Omaha Tournament Won by Christopher Philippou at the Triton Mediterranean Okbet Poker Party

Christopher Philippou, a local legend, won the $25,000 buy-in pot-limit Omaha event at the 2022 Triton Mediterranean Okbet Poker Party. He bested a field of 32 players to take home the championship and the $270,000 first-place prize. The Cypriot who made the final table of this high-stakes tournament series his home managed to beat the odds and win a record amount.

The highlight tournament of the 13-event series had a $200,000 buy-in, and this event ran concurrently. That’s why it wasn’t blogged and streamed live like the rest of the festival. Because of this, we are unable to reveal the exact results of the final table, but we can tell you that some notable players got into the money.

Erik Seidel, winner of nine bracelets at the World Series of Okbet Poker, went out first when the bubble burst. The 62-year-old Poker Hall of Famer finished in 11th place, earning him $56,000 and 112 points toward Card Player Player of the Year. Seidel is now in 15th place in the Global Poker 2022 POY race with a total of 3,944 points and approximately $3.1 million in year-to-date POY earnings.

While Seidel was certainly a strong candidate for POY, he was not the only one. With his fourth-place finish ($92,000 and 168 POY points), Stephen Chidwick, the current points leader and 2019 POY award winner, extended his advantage.

With his current score of 6,177, Chidwick has a 1,454-point advantage over Chris Brewer, who is in second place (4,723 points). This year alone, the 33-year-old poker pro from Deal, England has reached 23 final tables, won five titles, and cashed for roughly $6 million in POY earnings. In addition to increasing his lead on the PokerGO Tour leaderboard, he received 55 points in this tournament, giving him a total of 155.

Its runner-up, British hedge fund manager Talal Shakerchi, earned $190,000. Shakerchi had just finished in fifth place for $510,000 at the series’ $75,000 buy-in event a few days before to this. Although he’s not a professional, he’s amassed a modest fortune through poker tournaments: $8.9 million.
