Reginald Roberts (pictured) topped a field of 165 players to win the WPTDeepStacks Oklahoma Main Event on Monday night at the Downstream Casino Resort in Quapaw, Oklahoma. Roberts was awarded $50,765 in prize money and a $3,000 Championship Package after winning a very quick final table that clocked in at just over two hours of play.
Cards got into the air at 1 p.m. between the final nine players, and action was fast and furious to kick things off at the final table. Eric Thompson fell in ninth place on the first hand of play, and Rodney Spriggs followed him to the rail in eighth place on the very next hand. Chris Battaglia fell shortly after that in seventh, and Jerad Jameson and Brian Dewey each doubled up before Jameson fell in sixth place. Jesse Jones busted in fifth place before John Lopez scored the next double up. Dewey then fell in fourth place and Lopez was out in third place to take us down to a heads-up final in just two hours.
Daniel Lowery took the chip lead into the heads-up final against Reginald Roberts, but Roberts took the lead before the two players took a scheduled break. On the first hand coming back from the break, Lowery got all of his chips into the middle preflop holding AdKc. Roberts had him covered with pocket nines in the hole, and the board brought no help for Lowery. Roberts won the tournament and took home $50,765 in prize money along with the WPTDS trophy. Congratulations to our newest WPTDS champion – Reginald Roberts!
