Jeff Lisandro is on a winning streak and it looks like the sky’s the limit for this poker professional, who participates in all sort of tournaments. While he is an accomplished Texas hold ‘em player, he also has a talent for prevailing in pot limit Omaha and his most recent accomplishments came at these tables. He bought in for the AU$1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha tournament at the 2014 World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific festival and outshined more than 300 players.
There were plenty of Australian players to beat, which is only natural since this tournament is held on the continent, but very few of them were a match for Jeff. He is a multiple WSOP bracelet winner and by prevailing in this tournament, he added the sixth coveted bracelet to his collection. There are not many players out there who can beat him in a competitive game of Omaha, with those who made the final table being fully aware of the danger.
The winner was guaranteed a prize exceeding AU$50,000, while the one finishing in the second place had to settle for AU$30,000. The final table was comprised of eight players, but two of them were eliminated at the end of Day 2, which meant that only six of them returned for the final act of the competition.
Jeff Lisandro was not the chip leader but he lasted long enough, to see three more players being sent to the rail and then he made his move against Zane Ly. Throughout Day 3, he was the player to dominate the tables and doubled up twice, but in the end he was eliminated in the third place. With the vast majority of his chips going to Jeff, Lisandro had no problem in wrapping things up when heads-up began. He had a significant advantage over Jason Gray and it took less than half an hour for the winner to be decided.
This is how the final table shaped up and the prizes collected by the eight finalists:
