Filip Verboven wins Unibet Open Prague

Monday, 20 February 2012

After Christian Vanzieleghem's success at the European Deepstack Poker Championship last week comes news of another Belgian success, this time at the opening leg of the 2012 Unibet Open series in Prague.

The Belgian in question this time is Filip Verboven who outlasted a 254-runner field in Prague over the weekend. Verboven pocketed €100,000 after beating Ruggerio Scommegna after a gruelling heads up battle. The Italian took home €56,000 for his efforts.

A word too for our own Alex 'Pickleman' Rousso who enjoyed a deep run, eventually busting out in thirteenth for a score of €3,000.

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1 Filip Verboven €100,000
2 Ruggerio Scommegna €56,600
3 Stieven Razab-Sekh NL €37,700
4 Jan Grajzel SK €30,200
5 Gerret Van Lancker BE €24,500
6 Tomasz Kozub PL €20,700
7 Hans Sybrandi NL €17,000
8 Dan Murariu RO €13,200
9 Flavien Guenan FR €9,400
