Shannon Shorr (Birmingham, AL)


After seeing his Aces cracked and surviving one double-up, Shannon Shorr’s doesn’t get a second straight double-up.

Shorr is all in with AdJh against the 9d8d of James Calderaro.

The board runs out5c5s3dKd6d and Calderaro wins the tournament with a flush.

“I’m disappointed, obviously,” says Shorr, who takes home $190,039 as runner-up. “I still don’t have a major title. That’s what it’s about for me, more than the money.”

Shannon Shorr has 7 career titles, but no WPT or WSOP wins. The 28-year old increases his career earnings to more than $5.5 million.

This was the Shorr’s third WPT final table.
