Chutrov Wins Unibet Open Glasgow

Wednesday, 10 June 2015

It's not often that a day 1a leader carries that momentum all the way to victory but Daniel Chutrov managed to do just that at Unibet Open Glasgow.

The Bulgarian was a permanent fixture at the head of the chip counts from the middle of the opening flight and eventually binked himself a £43,000 score after topping a tough final table.

Any hopes of a Scottish victory at Celtic Park were dashed early on as James McAualay departed in a pretty brutal cooler. All in with AK he was unlucky enough to run into Chutrov's pocket kings and Heins Klade's pocket aces. The rockets held to send the home crowd's favourite to the rail.

It was to prove a very profitable few days for Klade. The Estonian qualified for just €2 and managed to parlay that into a £10,700 payday after eventually busting out in fifth.

Klade wasn't the only player who qualified for pennies to walk away with thousands. Sweden's Ninib Messo satellited his way to Glasgow for just €10 and finished with £8,550 after busting in sixth.

After Sweden's Anders Ostrowski departed in third only Briton Chen Wenbin stood in the way of Chetrov's end to end triumph. After a topsy turvy heads up clash where the lead changed hands on multiple occasions, Chetrov would eventually prevail.

The final hand saw Wenbin open up to 200,000 with Chetrov re-raising to 660,000. The Bulgarian bet 450,000 into the Jd-2d-3c flop only to see Wenbin move all in. After tanking, Chutrov made the call, revealing AhKd which needed help against Wenbin's QsJs. The dealer duly provided it giving Chutrov a king on the turn. The river was a blank which gave Chutrov the title and sent Wenbin back past Hadrian's Wall in second place with a £30,000 consolation prize.
