El campeón formó con Adolfo y Poroto Cambiaso, Peke González y David Paradice; levantó el prestigioso trofeo CaptiveOne US Open Polo Championship y se llevó el premio de u$d 200,000. Fue el noveno título de US Open para Cambiaso, el primero para Poroto (empata a Nic Roldan como el ganador más joven, con 15) y también para Peke González.
Adolfo, además del galardón personal de MVP, se llenó de mantas para sus productos Greta Libelula, Lovelocks Camusericht y Dolfina Maria, recibiendo múltiples premios (ver debajo).

íThe highly anticipated conclusion to the 2021 Gauntlet of Polo® and CaptiveOne U.S. Open Polo Championship® at the International Polo Club Palm Beach did not disappoint in a hard-fought final that came down to the final chukker between Scone and Park Place. Under sunny skies on the Home of the U.S. Polo Assn – Field 1, it was Scone’s father-son duo of Adolfo and Poroto Cambiaso, along with Peke Gonzalez and David Paradice that emerged victorious, raising the prestigious CaptiveOne U.S. Open Polo Championship® trophy and capturing the $200,000 prize with the 14-13 victory.
