Party Poker World Open heat results (spoilers inside)

Wednesday, 8 September 2010

Bluff Europe likes to sprinkle some good poker karma whenever it can. We put James Akenhead on the cover and he goes and makes the WSOP final table. Ditto Michael Mizrachi. Andrew Robl may not have been the Bluff cover star yet but he did give an excellent lecture at Poker in the Park and has followed it up by winning a stacked heat at the Party Poker World Open.

The young American online ace defeated a field that included Party Poker pros Dragan Galic and Felipe Ramos, Irish Open champion James Mitchell, triple crown winner Roland de Wolfe, double WSOP bracelet winner Brandon Cantu and Tom 'Durrrr' Dwan.

The delighted winner gave an unusual reason for his success, telling the PartyPoker blog “I had five whiskeys yesterday. I think that was the key to my success.”

The third heat was won by EPT big cheese John Duthie who outlasted Annette Obrestad, Giovanni Safina, David 'Viffer' Peat, Liam Flood, John Eames and Barny Boatman to set up a heads up clash with London high stakes cash game regular MB Mahmood. The one time TV producer called Mahmood's Jh-8h push with AcQs. Aces on the flop and turn sealed the deal. Robl and Duthie join Sam Trickett who won the opening heat.

Joining them in the final will be one of Praz Bansi, Simon Zach, Fabian Quoss, Dixie Dean, Frank Kassela, Jake Cody, Tyron Krost and Yevgeniy Timoshenko who are contesting today's fourth heat.
