Robert Miller Wins the Eastern Poker Tour Season 29 April $10K Monthly Championship

Today at the VFW in Walpole, the Eastern Poker Tour started the Season 29 $10K Monthly Championships.

We started the day with 200 players and when the smoke cleared, Robert Miller (N. Shore) was the last one standing. When Miller reached the Final Table, he was 4th in chips. Throughout the Final Table, Robert knocked off four players.

We had 2 quick eliminations in 11th (John Varela) and 10th Place (Kelly O’Hare) to make the “Official” Final Table of 9

The chip leader going into the Final Table was Mark Lynch and he finished up 8th.

Robert Miller and John Kelly battled one hand when it got to Heads-up play. With the blinds at 60,000/120,000, Miller had a commanding lead over Kelly.

Flop – 7♦ 6♦ 5♠. Kelly bet 200,000 and Miller tanked for about a minute then moved all-in figuring Kelly was only on a flush draw. Kelly quickly calls putting his stack at stake.

Kelly – 7♥ 9♥

Miller – Q♠ 6♣

Turn came the Q♣ giving Miller two pair and only giving Kelly a few outs with either a seven or eight

River – 10♥ knocking out John Kelly in 2nd.

Interesting “funny” side note – during the Live Stream, Oliver Fernades made the comment of “just give Rob the 2500”. Miller replied “Nah, I would like to earn it”.

Miller has plans for the $2500. He is taking it with him to Las Vegas for the Bar Poker Open National Championships in a few weeks!

“Hee-Haw” shouted Miller.
