SCOOP: Nick Abou Risk Wins One, Narrowly Misses Another

1

The 2017 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker was supposed to have wrapped up on Tuesday with the final table of the Main Event. A server issue mid-way through the first week forced PokerStars to reschedule a total of nine events for Wednesday. And while most of the poker world was still relishing in Charlie Carrel’s Main Event win, Nick Abou Risk almost did something really special.

Seven years Terrence Chan pulled off the impressive feat of winning two Spring Championship of Poker Limit Hold’em events, at different buy-in levels, on the same day. On Wednesday, Chan was an active participant in Risk’s attempt at matching the feat.

Risk made the final table of Event #33 High ($2,100 Six Max Limit Hold’em) and #33 Medium ($215 Six Max Limit Hold’em). He got heads-up in both events, beating Chan in the High version for a $69,160 score before fi shing second behind ‘DAEXTASY’ for$15,325.20. The Low version was won by ‘rodksy_20’ for $6,462.69.

The #11-ranked player in the world, Andras ‘probirs’ Nemeth of Hungary, beat out 509 other players to win Event #34 High ($2,100 Four Max NLHE) for $170,835.23 after chopping with ‘OLD TIME GIN’ and ‘Prot0’. ‘Fresh_oO_D’ beat former #1-ranked Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford to bank $67,044.32. and ‘Saiiizka’ topped Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom in the Low version for $67,044.32.
