Jonathan Depa Takes Down Poker Masters $10k Short Deck Title For $133,200

Jonathan Depa came through a tough final table to lift the $10k Short Deck Poker Masters title last night, a $133,200 payday coming just two weeks after scooping the Short Deck High Roller at the WSOPE in Rozvadov.

Last month’s bracelet victory in the $50k at Kings Casino was worth a whopping €641,250 ($715,457) as Depa edged out Phil Ivey for the title.

Yesterday he had to see off another OG in Erik Seidel, as well as some modern-day legends of the game, Alex Foxen running deep as always.

The final six had returned from an initial day one field of 37 entries, the 36-card game always fun and exciting but requiring extra strong nerves as the all-ins appear more frequently.

It was Depa and Foxen who saw off most of their highstakes colleagues, Seidel falling in 3rd when Foxen caught running clubs for a flush, leaving him to face Depa heads-up.

It was Depa who was destined for a second huge Short Deck win, his Q♣ J♦ holding up against Foxen’s J9 to secure victory.

“Heaters are always fun,” Depa said after his latest victory, adding: “I don’t really play that many tournaments. To win two tournaments in two weeks is pretty awesome and it’s always nice when you’re just basically winning every all in.”
