The Wallonian city of Namur was the venue for the Belgian Deepstack Poker Championship over the weekend with Carlos Lopes taking the €525 Main Event.

The Frenchman beat a capacity field of 513 runners (in fact the field exceeded capacity, with 13 alternates taking their seat in the opening couple of levels).
A deal was agreed when play was six handed but the remaining half dozen played on for the title with Lopes beating fellow Frenchman Maxime Durville heads up.

The final tables positions and payouts were as follows:

1. Carlos Lopes (France) €35,000 *€52,500
2. Maxime Durville (France) €30,500 *€34,500
3. Len Lauwers (Belgium) €22,500 *€21,500
4. Valentin Juncu (Romania) €18,500 *€14,500
5. Martin Servais (Belgium) €19,000 *€11,500
