Silva Comes Back to Win HPT Daytona Beach

Silva Wins HPT Daytona Beach
Daniel Silva is the 2018 HPT Daytona Beach main event champion.

Staying out of the path of steamroller Hyndi Khomutetsky in the early going paid off for Daniel Silva, as he overcame a huge chip deficit to win the Heartland Poker Tour $1,100 Main Event at Daytona Beach Racing and Card Room.

Silva earns $95,057 – including an entry in the Nov. 9-13 HPT Season Championship $2,500 at Ameristar East Chicago – for the win, with Khomutetsky collecting $56,527 as runner-up.

The final table appeared to be one that would finish incredibly fast as Khomutetsky eliminated payer-after-player, cutting the field down to three players in fewer than three hours of final table play.

Heads-up went more than two hours, though, with Silva struggling to be only a 2-1 dog at times, falling as far back as 5-1 on a few occasions. The tourney accelerated once he gained the chiplead, finishing just three hands after Silva gained the chip advantage.
