$10,000 No-Limit victory for Adam Hendrix at US Poker Open

21 March 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Adam Hendrix was nowhere near the chip lead entering the final table of Event #3: $10,000 No-Limit at the 2022 U.S. Poker Open, but he turned the tables and came out on top for what was a $211,200 victory. Hendrix also picked up 211 points for the series leaderboard and is now second in that race with 234 points total.

Hendrix topped a field of 88 entries in Event #3. He now has one victory and two cashes through three 2022 U.S. Poker Open events. Prior to this win, Hendrix placed 11th in Event #2: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha for $23,100.

The victory wasn’t the first time Hendrix tasted the winner’s circle inside the PokerGO Studio and on the PokerGO Tour (PGT). In September 2021, Hendrix won Event #3: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha at the Poker Masters for $186,300.

To win this event, Hendrix topped Jonathan Little in heads-up play. Little came into Saturday’s Day 2 with a commanding chip lead and fell just short of his first live tournament victory since August 2019. Shannon Shorr finished fourth and the finish allowed him to extend his lead at the top of the 2022 U.S. Poker Open leaderboard.
