Event 12 Winner - Palma

$400 + $50 H.O.R.S.E.

Joe Palma (Bensalem, PA)

Game: Omaha H/L, Limits 40k/80k

Joe Palma turns a commanding chip lead into his second trophy of the series.

While holding A♠ 7 4 7♣, his pair of 7s wins the high, while A-4 takes the low to defeat Sal Pipitone heads up.

"It's been a tremendous week," says Palma who wins the title and the $13,038 first prize. "Getting a second trophy is pretty cool."

Palma won Event 3 (PLO) for $17,000 and not only has bookend trophies, but also gets a second framed winner's photograph from IMPDI.

After losing the first hand of the day and dropping to 15k with 15 players left, Palma rallied for the win.  He sends a shout out to his daughters Haley & Lindsay.
