Jason Shinbaum

David Prociak opened to 14,000 from middle position and picked up calls from Chad Eveslage in the cutoff, Sam Panzica in the small blind, and Jason Shinbaum in the big.

The flop came 3c3d2d,  Panzica checked, and Shinbaum moved all in for 49,000. Only Prociak came along and Shinbaum was at risk.

Prociak: Td9d
Shinbaum: Jh2c

Shinbaum was ahead with two pair but had a lot of outs to dodge. The Jd turn filled Prociak’s flush and Shinbaum was sent out in ninth place after the Jd river.

Event 9: Aaron Wallace Adds a PLO Ring to a PLO Bracelet in Coconut Creek

2019 February WSOP Circuit
Seminole Casino Coconut Creek
Event 9
$400 Pot Limit Omaha (Re-Entry)
$25,000 Guaranteed
Entries: 102
Prize Pool: $33,660
February 13-14, 2019

(Coconut Creek, FL) — Aaron Wallace complemented his gold bracelet with a gold ring Thursday night at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek. The 36-year-old recreational player from Northern California defeated 102 entries in Event 9 of the WSOP Circuit, a $400 buy-in pot limit Omaha re-entry tournament. In addition to the jewelry, Wallace earned $10,099 moving him over $300,000 in reported earnings.

Wallace, who was born in Carmel, Indiana, came to South Florida on an unrelated note — to purchase a car. The deal on the car fell through and Wallace was left with nothing else keeping him in the area. A friend pointed out the WSOP was in town and his favorite game — PLO — was going on.

“I came down here to buy a vehicle, and that deal fell through,” Wallace recalled. “I didn’t even know the event was going on. I called a friend and he was like, ‘Hey. There’s a PLO event going on. You should play.’ Here we are.”

Wallace, who’s been in the natural food industry his whole life, works for a company called Coyo that offers a coconut-based yogurt alternative. He travels for work often and only gets to play tournaments when it lines up with one his trips. Making it even harder to find a game, he exclusively plays PLO.

“The thing I like about PLO players — especially Bruce [Freedman], who I was heads up against –it’s a very cordial, friendly atmosphere. It was fun times. Winning a ring doesn’t hurt, either,” Wallace laughed.

The event drew 102 entries generating a total prize pool worth $33,660. The top 12 finishers scored a payday with past Seminole champions Cory Blum (10th) and Eric Kolodny (11th) joining him in the money.

Final results:

1st: Aaron Wallace – $10,099 + WSOP Circuit ring
2nd: Bruce Freedman – $6,241
3rd: Royce Matheson – $4,444
4th: Robert Banks – $3,228
