Sean Shah, RunGood Poker Series Event 4 champ

The last multi-flight tournament before the Main Event kicked off on Tuesday and the RunGood Deep Stacks drew 261 entries over the two starting flights. By the end of the tournament on Wednesday, Sean Shah had an outright win for $12,079.

Those entries were enough to turn the $25,000 guarantee into a $53,505 prize pool. They saw 34 players return for Day 2 and everyone was in the money. Jacob Dolehanty came back with a big chip lead but fell short of the title in fourth place.

Shah took command of the tournament at the final table and had a huge chip lead when he began heads-up play with Patrick Tobar. The tournament was done a few hands into the match and Shah took the title.

This is his second Coco title, another trophy to go along with the one he won for capturing the 2017 Coco Poker Showdown $350 Deep Stacks.

Congrats Sean!

Sean Shah

It did not take long to settle the matter.

A few hands into heads-up play and with the board reading KhQsJd4c, Patrick Tobar checked, Sean Shah bet 370,000 and Tobar called.

The river was 8d, Tobar checked again, Shah announced all-in, and Tobar took his time to consider calling for all his chips. After two minutes, Tobar tossed in a chip to call for the rest of his 860,000.

Shah: AsTs
Tobar: QcTh

Tobar flopped a pair of queens with an open-ended straight draw but way behind Shah’s flopped Broadway straight. Tobar was eliminated in second place for $8,504 while Shah is our RunGood Poker Series Event 4 champ and earned $12,079.
