Home win at Master Classics of Poker

Monday, 14 November 2011

Dutch poker fans had a home win to celebrate in the 20th running of the Master Classics of Poker with David Boyaciyan taking the title. The 32-year-old outran a field of 294 runners in Amsterdam to pocket a first prize of €382,200.

The crucial hand of heads up play saw Boayciyan get all his chip in the middle with AK against Jussi Nevanlinna's AQ. One of the Finn's three outs appeared on the flop but a 10 on the turn and jack on the river completed an unlikely looking straight for the Dutchman.

The end came on the very next hand when a crippled Nevanlinna shoved with Jh7h. The home player called with 10d9c and hit on the flush on the turn to send the Dutch rail into delight.

1 David Boyaciyan €382,200
2 Jussi Nevanlinna €227,850
3 Victor Wessman €130,830
4 Athanasios Polychronopoulos €104,370
5 Keven Stammen €89,670
6 Joe Ebanks €73,500
7 David Peters €58,800
8 Makarios Avramidis €44,100
9 Jody Bertozzi €29,400
