Freddie Ardoin of Lake Charles, LA marks today as his second HPT Main Event final table appearance and his first HPT Main Event win. In March 2015, Ardoin finished 6th here in Vicksburg. With a six-figure tournament cash record, Ardoin adds to his poker resume by finishing today in 1st place.
After making a quick and steady comeback, Ardoin takes the lead in chips and traps Judge Leo Booth to take the win.
Ardoin is first to act and calls the 160,000 big blind. The Judge shoves all-in for 2,170,000 and Ardoin makes the call.
Board runs out
Ardoin wins the hand, knocking out the Judge and wins the HPT's 201st Main Event, bracelet, and $42,835 in prize money in addition to the $3600 Championship Package.
