Final Table Wrap Up
Coming into the final table Givenup22 was 7th in chips with 5.3 million, well below the average stack of 9.3 million. Final table stacks were approximately:
(Blinds at 140K-280K)
Player Chip Stack (Millions)
Italian Soul 8
VogelB5 gets knocked out in 9th when he goes all in preflop with two overcards racing against -MuckmeharDQQ- pocket threes and fails to improve. MuckMe’s stack grows to 23.2 million. 8-handed.
BeeJill gets short, shoves all in preflop for 2.1 million, gets called and knocked out in 8th by CannonPCB. 7-handed.
BKqzbxt was the aggressor at the final table, raising and reraising preflop which gave his opponents fits. With blinds at 200K-400K (ante 50K), 7-handed, Nur1ck makes it 950K in the CO. BKqzbxt on the button reraises to 2.2 milllion. Kalachpl goes all in from the SB and there’s two callers. Board comes down 6d ks 7s 4s js, checked down to the river. No one has a spade, but BKqzbxt has K 10 top pair, and wins the 7.2 million pot to take his stack to 31 million, knocking out Kalachpl in 7th place. 6-handed.
Blinds still at 200K-400k, CannonPCB shoves all in for 3.84 on the button , BKqzbxt tanks for a long time in the big blind, before making the correct call with JQ, beating out 86 suited to win an 8.1 million pot and bringing his stack to 36 million. 5-handed.
Here comes the final table bad beat! With blinds at 250K/500K Nur1ck in the CO gets in an all out preflop raising war with ItalianSoul in the BB. The chips get in the middle with Nur1ck showing QQ and ItalianSoul showing KK, but Nur1ck binks a Queen like a pro, sending Italian Soul to the rail and bringing Nur1ck’s stack to 20.7 million stack. 4-handed.
4-handed the stacks were as follows. Nur1ck 20.1 million, BKqzbxt 36.4 million, Givenup22 15.1 million and –MuCkMeHarDQQ- 11.7 million. A deal is discussed but the experienced BKqzbxt with over 400K in online tournament winnings will have none of it. He’s playing for first!
The tide turned for Givenup22 on the following hand. With blinds at 250K-500K, BKqzbxt on the button raises to 1.5 million preflop and Givenup22 calls in the BB. The board comes Ad 9c 8s 8d 5c. Givenup22 check calls to the river where he is facing an 8 million river pot bet that puts him all in…after timing down Givenup22 makes the crying call with 9 10, beating BKqzbxt’s huge bluff to take his stack up to 24 million!
Nur1ck knocks out Muckme. 3-handed.
Nur1ck gets dealt KJ on the button and gets into a raising war with Givenup22. The flop comes down 394 rainbow. Nur1ck goes for a massive all in flop bluff, but Givenup22 makes the call with AQo, ace high, and takes it to the house to win a gigantic 57.6 million pot!
That left us with only two players in a heads up grudge match! Givenup22 the amateur with 57.6 million versus BKqzbxt the pro with 26 million. After a long back and forth HU battle, Givenup22 stacked BKqzbxt to earn the title of MiniFTOPS Event #13 champion!
