Samuel Chartier won the high roller tournament
Yesterday also concluded the high roller tournament $ 10,400 buy-in so that it remained more than 3 players: Sam Chartier, David Yan and friend Alibay.
When the heads up duel, Alibay had the advantage in chips on Chartier (529 K vs 491 K).
At this stage, the two players have thought about making an agreement on exchanges, but Chartier asking $ 5000 more than a split even though it was only 491K tokens.
Alibay refused the offer and continued to play.
On the final hand of heads-up, Chartier (AQ) and Alibay (A9) are all-in, and the 9-8-Q flop was to the advantage of Chartier. The turn and River have helped anyone and Chartier had just won the high roller and $ 122,050 while Alibay won $ 79,150.
On Facebook, Chartier congratulated his opponent: "Nice run friend, to each your step up a level game tournament. Truly an honor to have been able to play the heads up against you. For a guy who run clubs you could think about another career. Well done!"
Congratulations to both players!
