Florian Langmann Wins Event #54: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low

Florian Langmann Event #54 WSOP 2014
Share this

Florian Langmann had more than $2 million in live tournament cashes but perhaps the old saying "never holler WHOA in a horse race" — especially when you're in competition mode at the World Series of Poker — was nagging at his thoughts as he fought his way through a field of 474 in Event #54: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low for $297,650. He claimed his first bracelet when he defeated Zach Freeman heads-up!

Final Table Results:

1Florian Langmann$297,650
2Zach Freeman$184,216
3Dylan Wilkerson$122,427
4Doug Baughman$90,853
5TJ Eisenman$68,181
6Antony Lellouche$51,670
7Woody Deck$39,506
8Jonathan Depa$30,448
9Shiva Dudani$23,641

Twenty players came back to fight it out for a gold bracelet and top honors on Day 3.

"I guess I'm going to be the guy that's least afraid to gamble and that's worked out so far for me," Langmann told a reporter just before the official final table commenced. "You can't be too aggressive in this game."

Aggression may have been the key to Langmann's game. When the flop hit with the {9-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{4-Spades}, Zach Freeman got all of his chips in the middle and was facing Florian Langmann's {a-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{10-Spades}{8-Clubs}. Freeman tabled {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{k-Spades}{j-Spades}.

Freeman had a pair of threes and if a low card hit, Langmann would take the low.

Freeman called for a queen and the dealer obliged: {q-Diamonds}.

"How did you do that?" Langmann asked. "Eight."

The dealer burned and did as instructed, putting up the {8-Diamonds} to end the competition and give Langmann a winning pair.

Not only is Langmann aggressive, he can call the cards coming off the deck. Red alert! Danger, Danger, Danger! (Of course we're joking and having a bit of fun with it).

Congratulations Florian!
