Matthew Su’s Main Event Story

Matthew SuMain Event history really started to come to life on Day 7, where he started as 25th out of 35 before finally climbing into the lead overnight. Prior to that, Su found himself quietly grinding throughout the tournament, including going from Day 3 to Day 4 by literally adding a single T-5,000 token to his stack.

Su only has three cashes previously registered on his The Hendon Crowd profile, with a 43rd place last year WPT Five Diamond Classic in the Bellagio for $29,230 as its best result before. Now he’s guaranteed at least $850,675 and is in a prime position to capture poker immortality.

Su’s race to the final table

Until Day 7, Matthew Su had stayed away from the spotlight. His first live update was on Day 5 when he sent Ari Engel packaging with a flush-over-flush. He then ran for his tournament life on Day 6, but won with ace-king against pocket queens to double down and stay alive.

On Day 7, Su began her ascent by eliminating Adam Demersseman in a pair of hands before sending Tsur Levy to the rail holding with the queens against the ace-queen. This pot gave him the ammunition to face the aggressive and the volatile Karim Rebeiwhich stack he decimated to really propel him to the top.

In the end, it wasn’t a defining hand that got Su there; a series of small and medium pots that continued on its way eventually led to him winning 83,200,000 chips at the final table. He will return to the top five with 69 big blinds to begin his quest to win poker’s most coveted prize.
