Robert Wachtel defends his title in this event when he and Joe Treffiletti strike a deal to end the tournament before playing any hands heads up.

Wachtel has a commanding chip lead and gives up $402 from the $4,014 top prize to end the PLO event of the Lucky Hearts Poker Open.

Wachtel won this event in 2013 when it was held at Hard Rock, Hollywood.

“I’m tired,” says Wachtel who takes home $3,612 for the win, “but am happy to go back-to-back.”
