Thanh Doan Wins £187,000 at Unibet Open

Monday, 20 July 2009

The Unibet Open in London was the part of the Grosvenor Victoria Poker Championships that we really wanted to see – the £2,750 buy-in was sure to attract a juicy field and swollen prize pool.

In the end, 266 players entered to create a prize pool of £665,000 with a little under £200k to the winner. At heads up Doan needed only two hands to beat Arkady Kielman to collect the first prize of £187,000 in only his second major international tournament.

The full final table listings, including finishing position, nationality and prize, are as follows:

1. Thanh Doan (FIN) £187,000
2. Arkady Kielman (UK) £122,500
3. Sam Phomveha (FRA) £79,000
4. Konstantine Can (SWE) £52,000
5. Dan Murariu (ROM) £38,500
6. Rafal Ardent (POL) £32,000
7. Thierry Bolleret (FRA) £25,500
8. Mohamed Muse (UK) £18,500
9. Marek Sokol (POL) £13,500

The Unibet Open moves to Prague in mid-September.
