Raul Mestre is the International Federation of Poker's World Poker Champion after winning the $500,000 event in London yesterday.
A host of big names took part in the invitation only event including Sam Trickett, Gus Hansen, Barry Greenstein, Liv Boeree, Shane Warne and 2011 WSOP Main Event winner Pius Heinz. None could match Mestre though who outlasted a final table that included Sandra Naujoks and Igor Trafane before beating Vicky Coren heads up.The key hand of heads up play saw the Spaniard come out on top in a flip with 55 against the Only Connect host's AJ. A shortstacked Coren was all in soon after with A3 and was unlucky to run into A5. A 5 on the flop sealed the deal for Sestre who pocketed a big shiny trophy to go with the $250,000 first prize and the “Official World Champion” moniker. Team PokerStars Pro Coren took $100,000 for her efforts. A British charity also stands to benefit after Coren tweeted that “10% of anything I win in today's IPF final will go to Age UK.”The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1. Raul Mestre (Spain) — $250,0002. Victoria Coren (UK) — $100,0003. Igor Trafane (Brazil) — $50,0004. Slavko Tomic (Serbia) — $25,0005. Marsha Waggoner (Australia) — $20,0006. Sandra Naujoks (Germany) — 175007. Takuo Serita (Japan) — 15,0008. Tim Reese (Germany) — 12,5009. Kinichi Nakata (Japan) — $10,000
