Tim Mitchell Claims 2017 WSOPC Sydney Monster Stack Title

Tim Mitchell Claims 2017 WSOPC Sydney Monster Stack TitleThe WSOP Circuit Sydney is nearing the end of its 21-day and 13 event run at The Star Casino in Australia, with its penultimate tournament, the $1,100 Monster Stack, proving a popular draw with 403 players entering the event. Two days later, and it was Tim Mitchell who would ultimately triumph over his fellow competitors, including Rafe Aman heads-up, to claim a WSOP gold ring, and the best score of his life worth $88,684.
Day 1 of the WSOPC Sydney Monster Stack saw the field reduced to just 139 hopefuls, and after the 45-place money bubble burst on Day 2 the final table of nine was soon reached. At this stage, Rafe Amanut was out in front as the chip leader, while in fifth position was eventual winner Tim Mitchell. The average stack size was just 23 big blinds, though, and within two and a half hours the event had been decided.
First, Tim Mitchell (10c-8c) called Aaron Wilson’s (Ad-6d) all-in shove on a 5s-10s-Ac-7c-6c board to eliminate him in 9th, before being dealt K-K and taking care of Tony “Totti” Tavella (A-Q) in 8th.
Next, Mitchell (A-Q) dispatched Vince “Ice-V” Chung (10-10) to the rail in 6th, before using the same hand to eliminate Antonis Kambouroglou (K-5) in 3rd and usher in heads-up play against Rafe Aman for the title.
The tense final battle subsequently saw the chip lead change on a number of occasions before the deciding hand was played with Mitchell moving all-in preflop holding 10c-4c, and receiving a call from Aman with pocket fives. The board then ran out Ah-Kh-7d-Jh-Qd to consign Rafe Aman to a runner-up finish worth $54,787, while Tim Mitchell was crowned this year’s Monster Stack champion.
The victory helped Mitchell almost double his $89,325 in career earnings, while for Rafe Aman the score helped push his tournament earnings above the $300k mark. Meanwhile, Antonis Kambouroglou, aka “Toothpick Tony”, saw his winnings reach $788,314 following his third place finish in the tournament.
Final Table Results:
1: Tim Mitchell $88,684
2: Rafe Aman $54,787
3: Antonis Kambouroglou $40,034
4: Phil Georgiou $29,725
5: Nelson Maccini $22,414
6: Vince “Ice-V” Chung $17,155
7: Jacob Horowitz $13,323
8: Tony Tavella $10,494
9: Aaron Wilson $8,382
