John Monnette Wins PGT Mixed Games Event 2 for $211,200


John Monnette has won Event #2: $10,300 8-Game at the first-ever PokerGo Tour (PGT) Mixed Games tournament series. Monnette and his heads-up opponent, Albert Daher, finally resumed play on Wednesday after pausing the match on Monday so they could compete in other tournaments. The two resumed play just before noon on Wednesday, and it was Monnette who emerged victorious in about an hour’s time. For the win, Monnette picked up $211,200 in prize money.

“I feel really good,” Monnette said. “It was weird having the delay, for sure. I started the heads-up match, I don’t know what it was, 11-2 or something? I was a big dog in chips and then we grinded back and forth, back and forth. But then when we started here today, I was like 10-3, so then the pressure was on me after it wasn’t.”

When play resumed on Wednesday, Monnette had approximately a 3-to-1 chip lead. Daher quickly doubled his stack to just about tie things up, but then Monnette came right back to open up a lead. Daher was ground down, doubled up once, and then Monnette sealed the deal in a hand of pot-limit Omaha.
