Matthew Su’s Main Event Story

Matthew Su‘s Main Event story truly started coming alive on Day 7, where he started off as 25th out of 35 before ultimately soaring to the overnight chip lead. Before that, Su found himself grinding quietly throughout the tournament, including getting from Day 3 to Day 4 by literally adding just one T-5,000 chip to his stack.

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

Su’s run to the final table

Until Day 7, Matthew Su had mostly stayed away from the spotlights. His first live reported update came on Day 5 when he sent Ari angel packing with a flush-over-flush. He then raced for his tournament life on Day 6 but won with ace-king against pocket queens to double up and stay alive.

On Day 7, Su started his ascend by eliminating Adam Demerseman in a pair of hands before sending Tzur Levy to the rail by holding with queens against ace-queen. That pot gave him the ammo to take on the aggressive and volatile Karim Rebeiwhich stack he decimated to truly launch him towards the top.

Ultimately, it wasn’t one defining hand that got Su there; a series of small and medium-sized pots that kept going his way ultimately contributed to him sporting 83,200,000 at the final table. He’ll return in the five-seat with 69 big blinds to start his quest to win poker’s most coveted prize.
