Last Saturday of September, OlyBet Poker room invited its players into a special OlyBet Poker Series September tournament. €55 buy-in Progressive KnockOut tourney had a solid €5,000 guarantee, but the 171 entries easily surpassed it – the final prize pool rose to €8,550.
The Estonians dominated the final table. Five finalists played under the Estonian flag, while their opposition consisted of two fins and two Latvians.
Both Latvian players busted in 8th and 7th places, and from the TOP 6 play and forward, a clear chip leader emerged as Estonian ‘joppenpuhhen‘ knocked out four opponents in a row.
On the key hand (main picture), his J9o was victorious against ATo and KQo, held by two short stacks. A 9-high board secured him a massive 4,5x chip lead going into heads-up versus Finland’s ‘Roskakasi84‘. The Finnish player grinded the chip deficit back to 1:2 until everything ended with a good ol’ flip.
‘Roskakas84’ found AQo, but could not improve against the opponent’s pair of threes. A dominating performance secured ‘joppenpuhhen’ an impressive total prize of €2,041, including €1,428 in bounties.
