There’s no one happier than Matt Juttelstad that the WPT Lucky Hearts Open at Hard Rock Hollywood was a re-entry event.

The 24-year-old Orlando resident was eliminated on Day 1A only to re-enter on Day 1B and grab the chip lead, ultimately capturing the crown and the $268,444 check on Valentine’s Day. The other feel-good story at the final table was runner-up Diane “Gigi” Gagne of Clearwater. Gagne is a regular at Derby Lane’s poker room in St. Petersburg and a grandmother, falling just short of being the first woman to win an open WPT event.

The $3,500 main event attracted 295 entries and generated a prize pool of $958,750. Below is a list of the undercard winners.
