Hossein Ensan Wins WSOPC Rozvadov Main Event for $219kThis Thursday, the 2017 WSOP Europe is set to get underway at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, but before the prestigious tournament series begins the World Series of Poker Circuit capped off its latest stop at the very same casino with its Main Event.
The competition saw 672 players buy-in for €1,650 each to create a prize pool of €957,600 ($1,134,933) at the end of which it was Hossein Ensan who would eventually claim its title, as well as a first place prize of €184,812 ($219,036). Following a victory which pushes his career earnings to $2,339,119, the 53 year-old German player from Iranian descent commented:
“I am happy to be here. That was four days with great players and it was tough. But now I am just very happy.”
The WSOPC Rozvadov Main Event featured 71 money places, and amongst the notable pros seeing a return on their investment was Bertrand Grospellier in 69th (€3,639), Georgios Zisimopoulos in 58th (€3,639), Phil Hellmuth in 56th (€3,639), Jaroslaw Sikora in 30th (€5,554), Brandon Cantu in 14th (€10,342) and Carlo Savinelli in 12th (€11,874).
At the final table, Hossein Ensan (A-K) eliminated Viliyan Petleshkov (A-Q) in 8th, before being dealt A-Q and doing likewise to Michael Magalashvili (A-8) in 7th. Continuing his assault, Ensan (K-J) took care of Viktor Kovachev (A-9) in 6th, Davit Okropiridze in 4th, and Rifat Gegic in 3rd to usher in heads-up play against Jan Timo Jobmann for the title.
Ensan then used his overwhelming chip lead to good effect, and two hands later the final hand was played with Jan Timo Jobmann getting in his remaining chips on the flop looking to complete a queen high flush. Ensan made the call with 8-7 of the same suit, but ended up making a straight on the river to secure the win, instead.
