Roberto Marin agrees to an even five-way chop and then wins himself a trophy.

Marin, David Shephard, David Jackson, Giovanni Quintero and Julian Alvarado play for 15 minutes after reaching a deal and agree when the level ends the chip leader will be delcared the winner. After final hand Marin edges David Shephard heads up by just 30k.

All five players take home $3,340, but it’s Marin who takes the title in the Lucky Hearts Poker Open.

“I had many (good) hands, but no big hands,” says Marin, who is building on his 2013 success which included a $67,000 score in a four way deal at the Hollywood Deepstack Championships (May).

Marin, who works in real estate,  is looking forward to playing more events in the series and is undecided on if he’ll play the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Lucky Hearts Poker Open Championship Event (Feb. 7- 11).
