Event #19 — Final Table Overview
After winning the first prize in a $10,300 PLO event, Ayras decided to test his poker skills and luck once again in a somewhat different type of poker — No-Limit Hold ’em. He proved that he could win an NLH event as well, even though he had to face some very tough competition.
