Mirek Heliś wins the Poker Fever Series Main Event!
The long May weekend has ended and so has also the Main Event of the latest Poker Fever Series that took place in Go4Games Resort in Olomouc. Check the results below and remember you can also join us during the next festival to see your photo in an article just like this one!
The buy-in to the ME was paid as many as 586 times (192 re-entries). 60 players sat at the tables on the final day 2.
Let us tell you how the game progressed when 9 finalists came back to the table after a break. First to hit the rail was Zubi. His AK faced nines from Besti.
A few moments later BreakPoint doubled up. After preflop all-ins his queens won with Kylong’s AK. King appeared on the flop, but there was a queen on the river and initially better hand held up!
Place 9th – Zubi (CZK 31,900)
This time it was a double up moment for Kylong. His AK was dominating Kevin’s A7. Just after that Kylong also eliminated Szosti, who went open all-in with KJ, ut was called by AK. The board Q62A7 did not help and Szosti was on his way out.
Place 8th – Szosti (CZK 43,400)
Next to go was Kevin. He got eliminated on 8756J and beforehand he represented a straight with a big all-in. Besti tanked for a while and finally called with a set of fives to caught his opponent semi-bluffing with JT!
Place 7th – Kevin (CZK 58,800)
There were only five left!
It was now a big loss for BreakPoint. He tried to bluff Besti on A3975 board with just… JT. His opponent had two pair with 97 and called his opponent.
BreakPoint lost the rest of his chips when his big pair lost with 44 that improved to a set on the turn.
Place 6th – BreakPoint (CZK 76,700)
Short break and another clash. This time of the two smallest stacks (both with about a million in stacks). Wesoł moved with JT and was called by Pitkas who was holding A7. Board T5365 sent the chips to Wesoł and thus also eliminated Pitkas from the further game.
Place 5th – Pitkas (CZK 99,700)
After Pitkas was gone players started talking about a deal. The talk was a bit weird and complicated to be honest. Finally players agreed to the following sums:
Wesoł CZK 174,500
Besti CZK 223,000
Kylong CZK 187,000
Mirek CZK 183,400
Wesoł limped in the small blind with 93 in diamonds and together with Besti they looked at the flop with QJ8 with two diamonds. Players started raising each other and all chips went into the middle of the table. No wonder – Besti had a straight with T9 (nuts), and Wesoł gutshot with a flush draw. No diamonds on turn or river and another one bites the dust as they used to sing.
Place 4th – Wesoł (CZK 174,500 after a deal)
Next to go was Kylong, who got eliminated by Mirek. Check on the Q85 flop from Kylong and a bet from Mirek. Call and an ace on the turn. Another check, then also a bet, but this time Kylong decided to go all-in A7. Mirek immediately called with Q5 as he had two pair! Blank on the river and that was it… Heads up time!
Place 3rd – Kylong (CZK 187,000 after a deal, above)
Place 2nd – Besti (CZK 223,000 after a deal, below)
In the final hand of the Main Event Besti found AT and decided to go all in preflop. Unfortunately for him Mirek (pictured in the main photo, at the top) caught AK and naturally made a quick call. The board JJ87A made the kicker speak and we had a winner!
Place 1st – Mirek (CZK 183,400)
Congratulations to the winner. See you soon at the next PFS festival!
