Andrei Makavets triumphs WSOPC Mini Main Event

by Team Gutshot Posted on 09 Oct, 2019

King’s Casino, Rozvadov hosted a big showdown in the €250 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Circuit Mini Main Event (ring #5). The tournament illuminated the region enticing numerous poker players from various nations.

The popularity of the autumn edition registered a massive number of 3,302 players who went into the battle for the lion’s share of €705,802 prize pool. Eventually, the top 394 players received a minimum paycheck of €500. The €110,500 bonus and the €10k WSOPE Main Event ticket were claimed by Belarus’ Andrei Makavets walking away with his biggest live victory so far.

Halfway through the event, Day 2 chip leader Pierre Neuville fell in 19th place and about nine hours of intense action later, only two players remained, with Makavets against Peter Ralbovsky in heads-up. The Belarusian held Ac 6h against his opponent’s Kd Jd.

With flop 7c 5h 4h, Andrei put his entire stack in the middle while Ralbovsky called. Both players were in anticipation of certain cards but turn and river brought Td 9d and it made no change for the Slovak and Ace-High handed Makavets the title.

Makavets sits in 29th place in Belarus’ All-Time money list with total live earnings of $152,717. He made an outstanding 3rd place finish in the 2019 Belarus Poker Tour, Minsk. King’s Casino never fails to attract Indians in huge numbers, this time the Mini Main Event saw the presence of sole Indian contender Pulkit Goyal finishing at 8th and bagging €8,000 (~INR 6,24 Lakhs). Goyal is a well-known player who finished 8th in India Poker Championship (IPC) Main Event recently.

Final top 10 payouts

  1. Andrei Makavets – €120,350
  2. Peter Ralbovsky – €78,950
  3. Thomas Theurer – €53,600
  4. Heinz Traut – €40,350
