Amar Begovic Wins WSOPC Rozvadov Main Event
The WSOP (World Series of Poker) International Circuit is one of the most exciting tournament series to look out for if you are a poker enthusiast. Currently, the season just got done with a stop at the King's Casino in Rozvadov, and action is also currently underway at the Casino Barrière Cannes Le Croisette in Cannes, France.
The series at Rozvadov began on 8th March and went on till 19th March, with Bosnia's Amar Begovic winning the Main Event that began on 16th March. The €1,650 buy-in Main Event had a €1 million GTD but a total of 796 entries ensured that the guarantee was crushed, and 79 players would reach in-the-money, with a min-cash of €3,857.?
Begovic bagged the Main Event title, the top-prize of €220,000, a WSOPC ring and a seat into the 2018 WSOP Global Casino Championship. This was coming for Begovic, after reaching the final table in two previous events in the same series. He also secured his largest live poker cash, beating his previous best of €10,910 way back in 2009. Even though he doesn't have too much in live poker earnings, he has still moved up to #3 and Bosnia & Herzegovina's all-time money list.
Begovic reached heads up against Israel's Timur Margolin, who has almost $1 million in live poker tournaments, and was the more experienced players among the two. However, Begovic doubled up twice before the third all-in and call of heads up. Begovic held Q-4 and a queen popped up on the river, giving him the title!
