Seth Brown wins CPPT Ocean’s 11 Classic

He has only registered five other cashes for about $22,000 in six years according to the Hendon Mob. However, Seth Brown found his biggest pot at the CPPT Ocean’s 11 San Diego Classic, taking down the tournament and pocketing $46,870. Brown outlasted several well-known poker pros, inlcuding Veronica Daly, Mike Eskandari and Barry Seidman to earn the victory.

938 entries were registered in the $250 buy-in event, making it the largest CPPT event ever seen at Ocean’s 11. 859 entries were logged over the six starting flights while 79 players chose the Quantum Tournament structure route to buy into Day 2 directly for $1,500. That turnout helped push the prize pool to $264,900.

133 players all made it to the money. Upeshka DeSilva, who has two WSOP bracelets to his credit, was pushed out in 41st place for 875 and Eskandari was sent to the rail in 34th place for just $990. Seidman, who took the victory at the same event last year, had a deep run, lasting all the way to fourth before being eliminated. He picked up $16,150 for his performance.

Down to three, Brown found himself facing Aaron Magers and Daly. Daly, who led in chips after the six starting flights, was sent home in third place with $21,385. Magers and Brown were now locked in heads-up battle, but Brown was able to develop momentum and Magers was eventually eliminated. He earned just over $30,000 for his runner-up finish.
