David 'TheKing411' Coleman took down NJ's WPT Online Poker Open powered by partypoker US network.

It was yet another weekend of major prize pools and marquee events in the regulated online poker markets in the United States including the arrival of the World Poker Tour Online Poker Open on the partypoker US Network.

Even with PokerStars playing out their Main Events of their Summer Series in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the WPT Online Poker Open stood above the rest as the largest U.S. online tournament of the weekend. The exclusive tournament for Garden State grinders saw 868 entries push the prize pool past the $300K guarantee to create a $317,540 prize pool.

David ‘TheKing411’ Coleman, the current #4-ranked player in the United States, claimed the crown, took down the tournament, and the $56,585.70 first-place prize. In addition to the win, Coleman also earned a WPT Championship Trophy and an $11,000 package that includes entry into the World Poker Tour Five Diamond World Poker Classic in Las Vegas plus $600 in spending cash. The victory was nearly a career-high cash for Coleman as it awarded less than $1,000 off his score of $57,515 which he earned in July of 2019 after taking down a WSOP.com High Roller.

The one-day event took over 10 hours to complete and the final table came to a relatively speedy conclusion. The early going final table action saw ‘A.Jackson1767’ (9th, $5,239), ‘anthonely’ (8th, $7,145) and ‘BV511’ (7th, $9,844) hit the rail, which guaranteed that each of the final six players would be walking away with a five-figure score.

Josh ‘layitdown08’ Rothberg fell in sixth place when his ace-queen got it in against the surging ‘jbg82’s small pocket pair. Rothberg lost the flip but won $13,019.14, a new career-high online cash. Soon after, ’jbg82’ scored again, this time on ‘KevinDurant’. The pair got all their chips in the middle and ‘KevinDurant’s ace-jack was dominated by ’jbg82’s ace-queen. ‘KevinDurant’ finished in fifth, taking home $17,305.93.

‘jbg82’ was nowhere near finished busting people as he ended up taking out ’ShutUPnDANCE’ in fourth place for $22,545.34. They also eliminated ‘lucky’ in third place, who walked away with a healthy $29,689.99 score. But while ‘jbg82’ was eliminating people, Coleman was picking his spots and picking up chips. He scored a big hand with three left to take over the chip lead and once ‘lucky’ hit the rail, Coleman asserted his new lead over ‘jbg82’.

The final hand was a bit of a cooler for ‘jbg82’ as both players flopped a flush with Coleman having the higher of the two. ‘jbg82’ runner-up performance was rewarded with a $42,232.82 score and Coleman booked the win.
