There was a double Dutch delight in Latvia over the weekend following a one-two in the latest leg of the Unibet Open series.
Rens Feenstra was the big winner in the €1,500 buy-in event, outlasting a field of 207 runners at the Royal Casino in Riga to walk away with a first prize of LVL 52,800 (around €75,000). For long periods of the final table it looked as if Feenstra's compatriot Rick Jansen would walk away with the title. Jansen had a healthy chip lead after eliminating Denmark's Jens Hansen in third place and extended his advantage still further early into heads up play. The balance of power shifted when Feenstra doubled up after rivering a flush with K2 to crush Jansen's pocket threes and it didn't take long for him to ride that momentum to victory. The tournament winning hand saw Jansen make a 120,000 raise from the button which Feenstra called. Afer Feenstra checked the 10d-2h-8h flop Jansen made a 120,000 c-bet which was raised. Not to be pushed off, Jansen pushed his final 1.5m into the middle. Feenstra made the call with 10-9 for top pair which was well in front against his fellow Dutchman's pocket fives. The turn and river were blanks giving Feenstra the title and his biggest tournament score to date. The final table positions and payouts were as follows: 1 Rens Feenstra NL 52,8002 Rick Jansen NL 36,9803 Jens Hansen DK 23,7604 Damian Mizinski PL 17,6005 Jarkko Mämmelä FI 13,2106 Kristaps Bertulis LV 10,5707 Anders Kjellerup DK 8,7808 Nicolas Storm DK 7,0309 Imro Sendar NL 5,265 The Unibet Open heads to Copenhagen in the new year.
