Congratulations to Mario Lopez, Winner of the $250,000 Guaranteed Event!

Mario Lopez and Robert Natividad decided to try to work out a deal, and after some initial struggles, the two agreed to a deal! Natividad will take home an extra $10,000, pushing his take home total to $50,690. The winner of the event, Mario Lopez, will earn $59,125, and the title! Congratulations to both players on their fantastic runs!

We want to thank everyone who came out to this series, and all of our major series in 2019. We hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday season, and if we don't see you for our upcoming daily tournaments, we hope you will join us in March, when the WSOP Circuit returns once again!

Robert Natividad - 2nd place 

Don Zewin Eliminated in 3rd Place ($25,470)

Just two hands later, Don Zewin got his short stack of eight big blinds or so in preflop, and he was in good shape, holding [Kh][8d] to the [10h][8c] of Mario Lopez. However, the flop of [10c][7d][5h] flipped the script, and now Zewin was looking for a three outer.

It wouldn't come, as the board finished out [5d] and [3s].

This leaves us heads up, with Lopez holding a massive lead of around 21 million to the nine million of Robert Natividad.

Vontray Gardner Eliminated in 4th Place ($19,290)

Blinds: 75,000-150,000

Mario Lopez raised to 500,000 under the gun, and Vontray Gardner defended his big blind. The flop came down [10h][8d][3c], and Gardner open shoved all in for his final 3.5 million or so. Lopez quickly called with [10s][7s] for top pair, and he was ahead of the [Kh][8d] of Gardner.

The turn [5d] and river [3s] changed nothing, and Lopez celebrated as he dragged another monster pot. With that hand, Lopez has over 20 million of the 30 million chips in play three handed.
