Final Table Action
On Saturday,, Andra Zachow was the first one to go out at the unofficial final table in ninth when she lost a flip. After an hour of chips moving around, popular vlogger Johnnie Moreno was the last player to fall after losing a flip of his own. The seven remaining players then bagged and tagged for a live-streamed final table.
Lisa Teebagy was the first one eliminated shortly after the start of the final table when her nines couldn’t hold on the river after Singh made a straight. 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event fourth-place finisher Garry Gates hit the rail in sixth when Andersen smashed the flop by making a boat against him, and Christopher Christian was the next one gone when he got his short stack up against the dominating hand of Singh.
Ebony Kenney was next to make her way from the table in fourth when she called off her short stack in the big blind and couldn’t improve against Andersen’s Big Slick. Brian Frenzel then got his remaining chips in against Singh, and was drawing dead on the turn after Singh flopped a flush. That set up a heads-up battle between Singh and Andersen, with the former starting with a chip lead of over two times the latter.
In heads-up play, Andersen quickly doubled through Singh, but a few hands after, she was left with a short stack after Singh made a straight on the river. Soon after, Andersen got the rest of her chips in against Singh preflop. She was dominated and was left with no outs after Singh turned trips, giving Singh the tournament victory and the trophy.
Congratulations to Raminder Singh for winning the inaugural RunGood All-Stars ProAm!
