HPO Championship Event in Las Vegas - Season TWO
In our second season, we saw the number of participants hit a new high of 692, the prize pool climb to $1.5 million, and the field become even more challenging. At one point, we had two World Champions playing our event as Carlos Mortensen, the 2001 WSOP Champion, joined our own Chris Moneymaker to play our Championship Event. We also welcomed back Season 1 Final Table players Ryan Tepen, Sam Stein & Ben Palmer. Some thought HPO history might repeat itself as Kitty Kuo was the lone woman at our Final Table and seemed to be running good, but was ousted in 3rd place. Her knockout came at the hands of our eventual winner Simon Deadman. He'd been runner-up in plenty of other events, but on Day 3, he owned the Final Table and became our Season 2 Champion.
Seat Winners - Season TWO
We awarded over 200 seats to our Championship Event and 13 of them finished in the money. Here's some of the top finishes and which property they were representing.
