So far the WSOP Europe at King’s Casino has been the greatest challenge for poker enthusiasts competing neck to neck. The series has been immensely successful, awarding the worthy winners an enormous sum of prize money. Such was the scenario yesterday at the Event #9: €1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha/No-Limit Hold’em Mix when Asi Moshe took his 4th bracelet home.
The tournament attracted a total of 279 entries, all chipping in €1,650 buy-in. But only 56 managed to survive throughout the severe battle. Undoubtedly, this year has brought Moshe his greatest accomplishment in winning the WSOP gold bracelet. His last win was at the 2019 WSOP Bounty, Las Vegas. In addition, he also took down the 2019 WSOPE 6-Max Deepstack Event.
The second flight began with Day 1 chip leader Shahaf Nacson sitting with Moshe, the former eventually falling at 41st place. Gradually, the final hand of the tournament arrived, Moshe playing against Kristoffer Rasmussen heads-up. The former holding jack-ten got a call from his opponent holding queen-jack. Flop had a queen and Moshe turned a straight Rasmussen to the runner-up position.
With 42 players receiving payouts of minimum cash €2,392, after the bubble burst the elimination was rapid including 6-times bracelet winner Chris Ferguson (9th, €6,893), bracelet winner Ismael Bojang (21st, €3,116), 6-time bracelet winner Jeff Lisandro (24th, €3,116), 4-time bracelet winner Shaun Deeb (26th, €2,699), 6-time bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu (37th, €2,392). In addition to this, the only Indian in the money Ankit Ahuja second in chip lead on Day 1, managed to secure 16th position for €3,678.
