Two years and five days after Governor Tom Wolf made online poker legal in Pennsylvania (along with sports betting and casino), the first-ever online multi-table tournament in state history wrapped up in a somewhat anti-climatic fashion.
‘SugarDaddyPA’ and ‘Stonks_Are_Up’ agreed to a deal that saw each player turn their $5 buy-in into at least $110.88. In the end, ‘SugarDaddyPA‘ outlasted the 140-entry field to win $121.67 while ‘Stonks_Are_Up‘ wound up pocketing $110.88 as the runner-up. The two agreed to the deal just after ‘LuckyIrishMan1‘ busted in third place, earning the scheduled $74.99 payout.
At the time the players agreed to a deal, ‘SugarDaddyPA’ held a nearly 2-1 chip lead.
The $5 buy-in event had a Turbo structure and drew 88 unique entries plus an additional 52 re-entries. A total of 23 players cashed.
Team PokerStars Ambassador Jennifer Shahade managed to sneak into the money, finishing 14th for $10.37.
The tournament was one of 12 scheduled for the first day of the PokerStars PA soft launch and took almost 90 minutes to complete.
