There was a home win in the latest leg of the Unibet Open series as Quentin Lecomte took the honours in this weekend's stop in Cannes.
The Frenchman is a member of Unibet Poker's pro team and boosted his bankroll by €100,000 after outlasting a field of 313 runners in the Riviera resort. Lecomte secured his best ever live score after working his way through a final table that included Paul Valkenburg, Paul Tedeschi and Thierry Morel before beating Sweden's Linus Hjulstrom heads up. Two-handed play was something of an epic with Lecomte taking three hours to finally grind his opponent down. After overturning a chip deficit that reached 5 to 1 at one stage he eventually sealed victory and the six-figure score when his pocket 77s held against Hjulstrom's ace king. The final table positions and payouts were as follows: 1 Quentin Lecomte (€100,000)2 Linus Hjulstrom (€69,800)3 Linas Laurinenas (€44,900)4 Paul Tedeschi (€33,250)5 Thierry Morel (€24,950)6 Joni Salo (€19,950)7 Paul Valkenburg (€16,550)8 Joao Silva (€13,270)9 Dmitry Varlamov (€10,000) The Unibet Open heads to Latvia for its next stop with Riga the venue for the €1,500+€150 event from 5-8 December.
