PokerNews Cup Rocks!

Share this

PokerNews Cup Event #3, $240 NLH jumped into action with 501 players. That's a great turnout for a mid week event. After playing late into the night, 10 players returned for the final battle.

Playing well is a key part of the game, but winning the cash and the title is what it's all about. When the blinds sky rocket and you're short of chips, lots of things happen - fast.

This is how the event finished:

1. Janar Kinramees $20,036
2. Andrew Oataway $15,030
3. John Williams $11,022
4. Eric Assadourian $8,517
5. Peter Verey $7,014
6. James Owens $5,511
7. Ram Dy $4,008
8. Sean Dunwoodie $3,006
9. Roger Codeca $2,004
10. Graeme Putt $1,002

Down to heads-up play Janar outran Andrew's flopped set of 10's, when the flop came {A-Spades}{10-Spades}{3-Spades}, the {9-Spades} came on the turn, and a dead blank on the river. Janar held {A-Diamonds}{7-Spades} to Andrew's {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}. As Andrew found out, asking for a board pair doesn't always work. Janar had Andrew covered. Congratulations, Janar!
