Chanracy Khun started the final of yesterday’s €3,500 buy-in main event of the WPT Barcelona with the chip lead and has now bagged the $258,448 top prize after overcoming Benjamin Pollak.
Unlike the previous action, the final table was a less frantic but when the chips had fallen it came down to Khun and WPT veteran Pollak with the Canadian maintaining his composure to have his name etched on the WPT Champions Cup.Having been to a WPT final table once before in Prague, Pollak was hoping to go one place better when he started the day with the second largest chip stack.The day started well for both Khun and Pollak as Najib Tahiri looked intent on having a good time regardless of the outcome. Playing almost every hand, the Moroccan managed to outlast local satellite qualifier Sergio Fernandez in addition to Bruno Garcia but finally relinquished the last of his chips when Khun’s flopped straight was enough to oust his Ah-6c.With his stack bolstered by Tahiri’s chips, Khun then went on to eliminate Antonio Alfaia before dominating Pollak heads-up. Indeed, with Pollak needing chips he was soon all-in but with no reply from Khun.However, there was only so long Pollak’s moves could go unanswered and after biding his time, Khun finally called with pocket eights. Already ahead of Pollak’s Kd-7d, the advantage never changed and when the final card had been deal it was Khun who claimed his first WPT title.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
