  1. In the past few years, the video streaming platform Twitchhas exploded in popularity, and while most users broadcast computer games like World of Warcraft and Counter-Strike, others have begun streaming their online poker play. But, as these first adopters have realized, playing poker live for a wide audience comes with its own challenges, one of which is the security risk of showing your computer screen to thousands of viewers. In his very first time streaming, poker pro Charlie "Epiphany77" Carrel found out the hard way how vulnerable streamers can be after a viewer hacked into his PokerStars account and transferred $1,000 to himself while Carrel took a short break. The incident, captured on video, took place on poker coach Evan "Gripsed" Jarvis' Twitch channelwhile Carrel 12-tabled several Sunday majors. When Carrel stepped out of the room during a scheduled pause in the tournaments, someone with the screen name Kiree11logged into the streamer's TeamViewer account, where he pondered transferring $10,000 and then changed his mind for a seemingly less noticeable amount of $1,000. The theft was caught almost immediately by some of Gripsed's 5,100 Twitch followers and Jarvis quickly contacted PokerStars' security department. Staying calm throughout, Carrel continued playing his tournaments while he spent around 30 minutes on the phone with support. In fact, by the end of the session, the younger grinder cashed for around $7,000. Speaking to PocketFives, Jarvis explained how the perpetrator pulled off the hack. The pair had planned to meet the night before the broadcast so that Jarvis could set up Carrel's laptop for optimal streaming, but the two never got the chance to link up. "Early in the Sunday session when he only had seven tables, I got him to open TeamViewer on the break so I could configure xsplit for him," Jarvis said. "It took us about 20 minutes and it was quite funny trying to set it up between tables popping up." Unfortunately, in the confusion, Carrel didn't realize that he had forgotten to close TeamViewer, and since he was on his laptop, he had not partitioned the screen to separate his poker play from his personal information. At one point during the session, Carrel's TeamViewer information popped up on the screen for a split second, which "hacker" Kiree11 promptly wrote down. With Carrel's ID and password at hand, Kiree11 was able to use the remote control feature to take control the poker pro's screen and transfer the money. Carrel's and Kiree11's account have since been frozen by PokerStars security while the incident is being investigated. According to Jarvis, Carrel will have his account reopened on Friday and hopes to find out over the weekend if all of the cash will be returned. Jarvis began streaming on Twitch in 2012, but was kicked off the site several times due to the fact that poker was against the company's terms at the time. When he found out that Twitch would no longer ban the game, he came back to the site last February and has since amassed over 240,000 views to his channel. Jarvis uses the platform to promote his coaching and video training website, Gripsed.com, and has begun to allow his coaches to stream on his channel as well. Initially, the pro only streamed once a week, but added another day in the summer and now has programming scheduled for three days of the week, with guest pros streaming whenever they like. The fact that Jarvis has gained such a large audience while only streaming a few days a week is a testament to the hunger for online poker content on the platform. In just one year, Jarvis has built up the third-largest following of all poker streamers on the site. Check out streaming poker content from PocketFives TV!

  2. [caption width="640"] Charlie Carrel beat Harrison Gimbel to claim the ,300 PokerStars Spring Championship Main Event (Neil Stoddart / PokerStars photo)[/caption] One of the most hotly anticipated final tables in online poker history included some of the game’s best players, a former #1-ranked PocketFiver, a power outage and a negotiation for over $2.3M before Charlie ‘Epiphany77’ Carrel emerged victorious in the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker Main Event (High) for just over $1.2M. The final table included former #1-ranked player ‘C. Darwin2’, Harrison ‘gibler321’ Gimbel, Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinnan, Carrel, Emil ‘Maroonlime’ Patel and '€urop€an'. A few minutes before play was set to resume on Tuesday, Drinnan tweeted that he, and one other unnamed player (later confirmed to Carrel) was in the midst of a city-wide power outage in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The tournament was paused, but after a 30-minute delay all players had power and the tournament resumed. Once it did, it didn’t take too long for just two players to be left in contention for the $1.356 million first place prize, but as many expected the final two players, Carrel and Gimbel, quickly came to terms on a chop. Gimbel walked away with $1,122,873.99 secured and Carrel had $1,100,899.99 locked up and eventually won the $100,000 left to play for. The Medium version went to ‘ROFLshove’ for $787,312.19 while the Low version saw ‘madalain’ walk away with $221,516.37 for an outright victory.

  3. [caption width="640"] Jason Koon beat Charlie Carrel to win the 0,000 buy-in PokerStars Championship Bahamas Super High Roller (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Jason Koon overcame one of the toughest high roller fields on the poker calendar to win the PokerStars Championship Bahamas Super High Roller and a career-best $1,650,300. For the 31-year-old, the win brought back memories of time when he was playing smaller buy-ins but dreaming bigger. “My first PCA, I was walking out of the casino and before I knew Scott Seiver that well, I saw him walk by me with headphones on, walking to the final table of a $100K or a $25K and being like ‘hell yeah, that’s Scott Seiver and he’s going to play the final table of this $100K’,” said Koon. “I was trying to satellite into the Main. I was thinking, one day I hope I can play those $25Ks and $100Ks. Sitting there with the trophy in front of me was just kind of a surreal moment.” Over the last six months Koon has recorded eight cashes, six of them for at least six-figures and total earnings of $3,909,741. Along with this Super High Roller he’s also won the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event and the WPT Five Diamond Poker Classic High Roller. “It’s just ridiculous. Poker tournaments are silly. That’s all I can say,” said Koon. “I don’t know how much of that is bias is from like ‘oh, I’ve been running well so I’m going to come in and feel good’ and when you’re running bad that’s not the case.” Koon started the final table with the third-biggest stack, trailing only Charlie Carrel and Dan Colman, but got to work on moving up the chip counts. Just and hour into play Koon raised to 100,000 from the button before Bryn Kenney, who won this event last year and has cashed in the event two other times, moved all in for 655,000. Koon called and tabled [poker card="jd"][poker card="td"] and Kenney turned over [poker card="ah"][poker card="8h"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="ks"][poker card="2c"] flop kept Kenney ahead and the [poker card="6h"] turn was no harm, but the [poker card="qs"] completed Broadway for Koon and eliminated Kenney in seventh place. Almost two hours later, Carrel picked up his first elimination of the final table. Carrel raised to 205,000 from the button before Connor Drinan moved all in from the big blind for just under 700,000. Carrel called and tabled [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"] which put him well ahead of Drinan’s [poker card="ad"][poker card="4c"]. The [poker card="5c"][poker card="4d"][poker card="3h"] flop put Drinan ahead and gave him a gutshot straight draw. The [poker card="ks"] turn flipped the script though and left Drinan drawing thing on the river. The [poker card="ac"] river gave Carrel top two pair and eliminated Drinan in sixth. Byron Kaverman was the next victim, falling victim to Dan Colman in a blind-vs-blind batle. Action folded to Colman in the small blind and moved all in, Kaverman called off his 720,000 stack. Colman had [poker card="9h"][poker card="6h"] while Kaverman had [poker card="ad"][poker card="ts"]. The [poker card="9s"][poker card="8h"][poker card="2s"] flop put Colman ahead and neither the [poker card="2h"] turn or [poker card="ks"] river were any help for Kaverman and he was out in fifth. Just over an hour later a pair of back-to-back eliminations got the tournament to heads up. Carrel raised to 225,000 from the button before Daniel Dvoress moved all in for 2,000,000. Carrel called and tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="kc"], having Dvoress’ [poker card="kh"][poker card="jh"] dominated. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="8c"][poker card="4h"] flop gave Carrel even more reason to breathe easy, but the [poker card="8h"] turn gave Dvoress a flush draw. The [poker card="ah"] river completed Dvoress’ flush but filled up Carrel to send Dvoress to the rail in fourth place. On the very next hand Colman raised to 3,000,000 and Carrel called from the button. Colman turned over [poker card="ah"][poker card="jh"] but got bad news when Carrel showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="kh"]. The [poker card="tc"][poker card="8s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="8h"][poker card="9d"] board was no help for Colman and he was out in third place. After being responsible for eliminating both Dvoress and Colman, Carrel began heads-up play with Koon holding 8,700,000 of the 12,500,000 chips in play. Over the course of the next two hours, with neither player interested in looking at chop numbers, Koon turned the tables on Carrel and finally put the young Brit away. The two checked through a flop of [poker card="kd"][poker card="qs"][poker card="2s"] and [poker card="8s"] turn. Carrel bet 400,000 after the [poker card="jd"] river and Koon moved all in. Carrel called off his remaining stack and then mucked his [poker card="kc"][poker card="7d"] after Koon showed [poker card="qh"][poker card="8d"] for two pair and the win. The $100,000 buy-in event attracted a total of 54 entries with 41 unique entries for a total prizepool of $5,239,080. Final Table Payouts Jason Koon - $1,650,300 Charlie Carrel - 1,191,900 Dan Colman - 759,660 Daniel Dvoress - 576,300 Byron Kaverman - 445,320 Connor Drinan - 340,540 Bryn Kenney - 275,060
  4. [caption width="640"] Ernest Bohn was the sole bracelet winner on Thuesday at the 2017 WSOP (WSOP photo)[/caption] Just the one bracelet to tell you about from Thursday’s 2017 World Series of Poker, but there are plenty of exciting events going on. The $10K Six Max No Limit Hold’em Championship is down to 24 players, while the $3,000 HORSE finished its Day 1 with dozens of big names through. Ernest Bohn wins Event #40: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Your newest bracelet winner is Ernest Bohn of the good old US of A. He took down the $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better for a massive payday of $173,228, and astonishingly it’s his first ever recorded live cash. The 68-year-old Bohn outlasted a bunch of poker heroes to do it. Six-time bracelet winner Ted Forrest fell in eighth, while four-time bracelet winner Max Pescatori exited in sixth. That left Justin Bonomo as the biggest remaining name, but he was next to fall in fifth. When Bohn found himself heads up against William Kohler, the chip stacks were quite short. Despite that, the two battled for around two hours before Bohn was able to clinch the title. For his second-place finish, Kohler banked $107,063. He also finished second in this same event back in 2009, but Bohn felt like he had him sussed. "He was starting to play a little loose," Bohn recalled after the win. "I said, 'This is my tournament.' I picked up on it right away.” Bohn, a former harness racing trainer, now plans to celebrate with his wife. "We're both retired now, my wife and I,” he said. "We've been together 46 years, and we like to travel. We're going to do a little sightseeing. I'm happy as all hell. Final table payouts: Ernest Bohn - $173,228 William Kohler - $107,06 Hal Rotholz - $74,200 Tim Finne - $52,272 Justin Bonomo - $37,441 Max Pescatori - $27,275 Shannon Petluck - $20,214 Ted Forrest - $15,245 Walter Treccarichi - $11,704 Eighteen remain in $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha Day 2 of Event #41, the $1,500 PLO, wrapped up yesterday, with just 18 of the 870 entries remaining. The man who comes into Friday’s Day 3 as chip leader is Loren Klein, who won his first bracelet last year in a Mixed No-Limit Hold'Em/Pot-Limit Omaha event. Two other notables still remaining are both six-time bracelet winners. TJ Cloutier is a legend of the game and sits sixth on the chip counts, while Jeff Lisandro is remembered for winning three bracelets in one year. unfortunately for him, he’s the shortest in chips. There’s $231,483 awaiting the eventual winner, but a few players who no longer have a chance include Matt Waxman (30th - $5,405), Tom Marchese (32nd - $5,405), David Williams (78th - $2,732), Yevgeniy Timoshenko (86th - $2,513), Joe Cada (94th - $2,356), andDan Heimiller(130th - $2,249). Play resumes at 12pm Friday. Top 10 chip counts: 1. Loren Klein - 719,000 2. Chun Law - 638,000 3. Sergej Barbarez - 570,000 4. Jeff Williams - 553,000 5. Mark Wahba - 462,000 6. Tj Cloutier - 449,000 7. Oskar Silow - 422,000 8. Jordan Spurlin - 415,000 9. Lance Howard - 409,000 10. Jonas Vanbaelen - 350,000 Charlie Carrel bags $10K Six Max Arguably one of the most prestigious events of the summer, the $10,000 Six Max No Limit Hold’em Championship brings out all the big guns. Right now there aren’t many big guns hotter than Charlie ‘Epiphany77’ Carrel, and so it’s not surprising that the 2017 Spring Championship of Online Poker Main Eventchampion has the chip lead with 24 remaining. Carrel has 1.5 million going into Friday’s Day 3, followed by Albert Daher (1,418,000), Chi Zhang (1,347,000),Tommy Chen (1,191,000), and Dmitry Yurasov(1,111,000). Meanwhile, Connor Drinan (822,000), Dario Sammartino (755,000), Sam Stein (690,000) and Eric Wasserson (600,000) are all still alive. Kristen Bicknell is too, and with 504K she’s looking to win her third bracelet. Of course, there are hundreds of big names who are no longer in the event. Jonathan Jaffe (47th - $15,516), Rainer Kempe (44th - $15,516), Chris Ferguson (43rd - $15,516), Sam Trickett (37th - $16,580), Sam Grafton (35th - $18,386), Olivier Busquet(32nd - $18,386), and Dan Smith(29th - $21,131) all cashed, while the likes of Phil Hellmuth, James Obst, ElkY Grospellier, John Racener, Adrian Mateos, Mike Watson, and Tony Gregg failed to make the money. The first-place prize is a healthy $775,923, and right now all 24 are guaranteed $25,139. Action continues at 2pm Friday. Top 10 chip counts: 1. Charlie Carrel - 1,500,000 2. Albert Daher - 1,418,000 3. Chi Zhang - 1,347,000 4. Tommy Chen - 1,191,000 5. Dmitry Yurasov - 1,111,000 6. Xixiang Luo - 921,000 7. Ivan Deyra - 877,000 8. Connor Drinan - 822,000 9. Amit Makhija - 772,000 10. Dario Sammartino - 755,000 Big names advance in $1,500 Shootout Day 1 of the$1,500 SHOOTOUT tournament took place yesterday, with 120 tables in action. When each had a winner, the 1,025 field was whittled down to 120. Some of those who won their tables and advance include recent bracelet winner Chris ‘Moorman1’ Moorman, 2016 November Niners Vojtech Ruzicka and 2017 SCOOP winner Kenny Hallaert, 2011 November Niner Martin Staszko, and bracelet winners Kevin MacPhee, Carlos Mortensen, and Kevin Eyster. The tournament continues today, as they shoot their way towards the $257,764 first place prize. Akkari, Negreanu, Obst, Hellmuth all advance in $3K HORSE Event #44, the $3,000 HORSE, is shaping up to be an exciting one. Day 1 saw 399 players enter, but with just 156 going into Day 2, there are plenty of big names remaining. Brazil’sAndre Akkaribagged up the chip lead, while Jeff Madsen andScotty Nguyen finished in the top 10. Two of the players racing for Player of the Year, Daniel Negreanu and current leader James ‘Andy McLEOD’ Obst, both survived, as did Phil Hellmuth. A story to watch is the fact that parents-to-be Jason and Natasha Mercier both bagged chips and will be back Friday for more action. Top 10 chip counts: 1. Andre Akkari - 110,100 2. Christopher Sensoli - 91,200 3. Nikolay Fal - 90,500 4. Matthew Honig - 88,000 5. Hani Awad - 85,400 6. Jeff Madsen - 85,000 7. Scotty Nguyen - 84,300 8. Marcus Mizzi - 83,200 9. Mark Gregorich - 82,500 10. Alexey Makarov - 81,100
  5. Thursday's action in the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker was all about star power. Among the winners were a recent November Niner, a young high roller powerhouse, a Russian online poker legend and, of course, a couple of Brazilians. Leading the way was Russia's 'Black88' who topped the 125-player field in the $25,000 High Roller event for $702,658.76. Runner-up 'fish2013' ended up with $569,575.65 after the final two players agreed to a chop. Canada's 'Apotheosis92' posted his second third-place finish of the week and walked away with $398,531. The best story of the day probably belongs to Charlie 'Epiphany77' Carrel though. The 23-year-old British pro, who has had a lot of success in live No Limit Hold'em High Roller events over the past two years, took down Event #16 High ($1,050 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha Eight or Better) after registering for it by mistake. The misclick earned him $67,410 while runner-up Andrew 'UlDuffer' Sweeney pocketed $49,113. The win was the first SCOOP victory for Carrel. Jerry 'hummylun' Wong, who finished eighth in the 2016 WSOP Main Event, took down Event #14 High ($2,100 Razz) to win $60,270. The final table included Shawn 'buck21' Buchanan, Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom and current SCOOP Leaderboard leader Calvin 'cal42688' Anderson. Anderson also made the final table of Event #15 Medium ($2,100 NLHE High Roller). The Brazilians continued to add to their total 2017 SCOOP wins and now have seven total after 'RickLogrado' and 'felipectb440' won Event #15 (Medium) and #17 (Low) respectively. Last year Brazilian players took home 21 SCOOP titles and they are on pace to eclipse that total this year.

At the start of the final table, it didn’t look like he had a shot but Sergio ‘zcedrick’ Aido battled back from the short stack to take home the 2019 PokerStars EPT Monte Carlo €100,000 Super High Roller title and its €1,589,190 first-place prize. At the start of the day, only nine of the 52 entries remained and Aido sat at the bottom of the chip counts. That wasn't his only problem, he was also facing some of the best high-stakes tournament players in the world including Mikita Badziakouski, Charlie Carrel and Sam Greenwood. After the elimination quick elimination of Luc Greenwood, Germany’s Koray Aldemir saw his pocket nines fall to Daniel Dvoress’ [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"] making him the official bubble boy and guaranteeing the final seven players a minimum payday of €264,860. Wiktor Malinowski collected that very amount when he fell in seventh place. Aido, who had been steadily making a come back after a number of doubles, raised on the button with [poker card="as"][poker card="kh"]. Malinowski then shipped his short stack holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="8s"] which was called by Aido. The flop fell [poker card="jd"][poker card="td"][poker card="3c"] keeping Aido in the lead. The turn was the [poker card="6s"] and the river the [poker card="7d"]. Malinowski, who had a total of just over $9,000 on his Hendon Mob page prior to this tournament, picked up his largest recorded score to date. As Aido continued to climb the chip counts, he also continued to rack up eliminations. Folded to the small blind, Charlie Carrel shipped his 10 big blind stack with [poker card="9c"][poker card="5c"] into Aido's big bling. Aido made the call holding [poker card="as"][poker card="2c"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="8h"][poker card="7c"] gave Carrel some additional outs, but the board bricked out for Carrel. The [poker card="2h"] came on the turn and the [poker card="8s"] fell on the river and Carrel exited in sixth place, taking home €327,930. After losing a pivotal hand to Jesus Cortes, Belarus’ Mikita Badziakouski was all but out the door. He was holding on to less than one big blind due to his [poker card="kh"][poker card="qs"] running into Cortes’ [poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"]. He stuck those remaining chips in the middle with the [poker card="6c"][poker card="3c"] and Cortes raised, once again holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"]. Aido came along and the three saw the flop of [poker card="kh"][poker card="8c"][poker card="5h"]. Cortes bet, Aido folded and the board ran out [poker card="5d"] on the turn and the [poker card="th"] on the river, bringing Cortes the nut flush and bringing Badziakouski’s tournament to an end in fifth place for €428.830. Canadian Daniel Dvoress started the day as the chip leader, but with four player left, he found himself sitting on the short stack. From the cutoff, he moved his remaining 15 big blinds in holding the [poker card="ad"][poker card="9h"] and Aido made the call with [poker card="ks"][poker card="kh"]. Aido scored the third elimination of the final table when he spiked quads with the [poker card="kc"][poker card="kd"][poker card="7d"] flop. The irrelvalent turn and river were dealt as Dvoress said his goodbyes and made his way to the cage to pick up €554,950 for fourth place. Defending EPT Monte Carlo €100K champion Sam Greenwood was making gains when he, too, fell victim to Aido. Greenwood raised his [poker card="ah"][poker card="ts"] on the three-handed button. Aido put in a three-bet holding, yet again, [poker card="kh"][poker card="kd"]. Cortes folded and Greenwood four-bet shoved only to be snap-called by Aido. The board ran clean for pocket kings coming [poker card="9c"][poker card="6s"][poker card="2s"][poker card="4d"][poker card="8s"] and Greenwood, who is used to going deep in the nosebleed tournaments, picked up another huge score of €731,530 for third place. Aldo held a commanding lead over fellow Spaniard Cortes when heads-up action began and it didn’t take long for him to put a stamp on his epic comeback. On the final hand, Aido limped the button with [poker card="kc"][poker card="qh"] and Cortes shipped his remaining chips in with [poker card="9s"][poker card="2d"]. Aido made the call and the pair saw a flop of [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"][poker card="8d"]. The turn was the [poker card="jh"] leaving Cortes with six outs. The [poker card="5s"] river was not one of them and Cortes wrapped up as the runner-up, banking €1,147,750 for the largest recorded cash of his career. It also marks the largest career cash for Aido. He took out five of his final six opponents en route to winning the PokerStars EPT Monte Carlo €100,000 Super High Roller trophy and for €1,589,190 for first. The score pushes him to over $10M in lifetime recorded scores. PokerStars EPT Monte Carlo €100,000 Super High Roller Final Table Results Sergio Aido - €1,589,190 Jesus Cortes - €1,147,750 Sam Greenwood - €731,530 Daniel Dvoress - €554,950 Mikita Badziakouski - €428.830 Charlie Carrel - €327,930 Wiktor Malinowski - €264,860
  7. Lukas Zaskodny might never leave King's Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. The Czech pro has already won himself a World Series of Poker bracelet and a WSOP Circuit ring there and on Sunday he added a career-best score to his resume after he took down the partypoker MILLIONS Europe Main Event. Zaskodny started the final table third in chips, just behind Romain Lewis but well behind Charlie Carrel. It took only 15 minutes for the final table to go from eight players to seven. From UTG, Carrel raised to 3,200,000 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"] only to have Rastislav Paleta make it 13,000,000 to go with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"] as the next player to act. Carrel moved all in and Paleta called with his tournament life at stake. The [poker card="js"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6h"][poker card="jd"][poker card="3c"] runout wasn't able to bail out Paleta and he was eliminated in eighth place while Carrel increased his chip-leading stack to nearly 90 big blinds. The next three hours couldn't have gone any worse for Carrel. Josef Snejberg, Roberto Romanello, and Severin Schleser each doubled up through Carrel leaving the British poker pro as the short stack. Down to just nine big blinds, Carrel moved all in from the hijack with [poker card="kc"][poker card="qh"] and Snejberg called from the small blind with [poker card="9c"][poker card="9h"]. The board ran out [poker card="jh"][poker card="2d"][poker card="7s"][poker card="ah"][poker card="4h"] to end Carrel's run in seventh place. Pocket nines were responsible for the next elimination as well, this time on the other side of the winning hand. Action folded to Lewis in the cutoff and he moved all in for 45,700,000 with [poker card="qh"][poker card="jh"] and Romanello called all in from the big blind with [poker card="9h"][poker card="9s"]. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="tc"][poker card="8c"] flop more than double Lewis' outs. The turn was the [poker card="4s"] but the [poker card="ah"] gave Lewis Broadway and ended Romanello's run in sixth. Zaskodny picked up his first elimination of the final table 90 minutes later. Zaskodny opened to 11,000,000 from late position with [poker card="7c"][poker card="7d"] before Sam Grafton shoved for 38,600,000 from the small blind with [poker card="kc"][poker card="qc"]. Zaskodny called and then watched the dealer fan out a [poker card="qs"][poker card="9d"][poker card="7s"] flop to give him bottom set against Grafton's top pair and backdoor straight draw. The [poker card="5h"] turn ended Grafton's run and he exited in fifth after the [poker card="ac"] hit the river. It took an hour before the next bust out happened, and once again it was Zaskodny doing the work. Zaskodny raised from the small blind with [poker card="qc"][poker card="4h"] and Severin Schleser called from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"]. The flop came [poker card="qs"][poker card="th"][poker card="4s"] to give Zaskodny two pair. The Czech bet 11,500,000 and Schleser called again. The turn was the [poker card="8h"] and Zaskodny fired out a bet of 25,000,000 and Schleser responded by moving all in for 57,500,000. Zaskodny called and then sweated the river card, only to see the [poker card="jc"] complete the board and eliminate Schleser in fourth place. Just a few minutes later, the tournament went from three-handed to heads-up with an all-in preflop battle of the blinds. Zaskodny folded his button and Romain Lewis moved all in for 80,500,000 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="9h"] and Snejberg called from the big blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="7h"][poker card="4s"] gave Snejberg a huge lead and while the [poker card="9s"] turn helped Lewis, the [poker card="5c"] river finished him off in third place. Heads-up play started with Zaskodny holding 312,000,000 of the 504,000,000 chips in play. The two players agreed to a deal that guaranteed Zaskodny €806,770 and Snejberg €718,230 and left €100,000 and the title to play for. Play lasted for about an hour before Zaskodny put a bow on his first major title by eliminating Snejberg. Zaskodny moved all in with [poker card="tc"][poker card="th"] and Snejberg called off his last 98,000,000 (12 BBs) with [poker card="as"][poker card="td"]. The [poker card="jc"][poker card="6c"][poker card="5d"] flop changed nothing and neither did the [poker card="5h"] turn or [poker card="6d"] river, giving Zaskodny the extra €100,000 and the victory while Snejberg was eliminated as the runner-up. Final Table Payouts Lukas Zaskodny - €906,770* Josef Snejberg - €718,230* Romain Lewis - €428,000 Severin Schleser - €300,000 Sam Grafton - €220,000 Roberto Romanello - €170,000 Charlie Carrel - €130,000 Rastislav Paleta - €100,000
