Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas hosted the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Event No.34: $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha (PLO) for three days. Sean Troha emerged as the winner taking home a $298,192 first-place prize and his second gold bracelet.
Only ten entrants advanced to Day 3 before Troha won the event. This was his second WSOP victory after winning the 2022 Event No.69: $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship. He said in an interview after the event that his confidence helps him face and beat tough opponents.
Troha added that he has competed in Omaha tournaments for eight years, and it underwent a natural transition as he loved playing the game in Cleveland. He thanked Kevin, his brother, for mentoring him in poker since his high school years.
Many people didn't anticipate Ryan Coon would give Troha a run for his money at the table. The former earlier told his wife that he wouldn't reach the final table since he was the day's short stack. He faced several skilled players, including Josh Arieh, Daniel Negreanu, and Robert Mizrachi.

Day 3's Action
The final day's stack leaders had a small chip gap. Antonin Teisseire set the unofficial nine-handed final table after Ryan Coon's kings dominated him. Josh Arieh, Daniel Negreanu, and John Racener missed seats at the final table.
Ryan Christopherson reached the final table after doubling up on Day 2. Unfortunately, he was the first finalist to leave the table after Coon beat him in a three-way pot using the river.
Jason Bullock extended his run on Day 2 after winning the aces vs. aces clash. He made an amazing bluff on the final table, but tables turned when Matthew Parry ran down his pair of jacks for a big pot.
Mizrachi has won four bracelets in mixed poker games and was the table's stack leader despite facing challenges. But his run ended in seventh place after being run down.
Troha's kings dominated Slobodskoy and busted him in the sixth position. Matthew Beinner had little experience in the tournament compared to his rivals. Yet, Arieh's bust on Day 2 helped him.
His kings lost to Troha's card, and he left the table in fifth place. Benjamin Voreland failed to make a bluff at the final table against Parry, thus losing most of his chips. Things worsened for him, and he got busted in fourth place.
Parry followed Voreland in third place, setting up heads-up action between Troha and Coon. Yet, Troha beat Coon and got a big pot in the full house. He ended his opponent's run in second place with a $184,305 consolation prize.
