2015 WSOP Europe: Alex Komaromi Wins €2,200 8-Game Mixed

2015 WSOP Europe: Alex Komaromi Wins €2,200 8-Game Mixed Uruguayan player Alex Komaromi has become the first player in his country’s history to win a WSOP bracelet, after successfully taking down Event #5: €2,200 8-Game Mixed Event for €65,740 ($74,747). Following his landmark victory which now boosts his live career earnings to $339,502, the 25-year-old Montevideo resident commented:
“It really means a lot. It’s like a dream to me. I started watching poker on TV and the World Series, it seemed so far away. Now that I have achieved it, it’s great. I am very happy.”
A total of 113 players entered the €2,200 8-Game Mixed event to create a prize pool worth €219,220, meaning just twelve players would see a return on their buy-ins. This included Bryn Kenney in 12th (€4,275), Mohsin Charania in 10th (€5,855), and Igor Yaroshevsky in 8th (€8,025).
The final table featured a number of formidable pros, too, including WSOP bracelet winners Scott Clements, Shaun Deeb, and Jonathan Duhamel. Alex Komaromi (8-8) subsequently eliminated sole German finalist Jens Lakemeier (A-9) in 6th (€11,025) during a No Limit Hold’em round, before Komaromi did likewise to Shaun Deeb in 5th (€15,235) in a Razz pot. Next, a Pot-Limit-Omaha round saw Scott Clements send Jonathan Duhamel to the rail in 4th (€21,065), after which the remaining players took an overnight break.
After the action picked-up once more, Alex Komaromi (2-2) eliminated Noah Bronstein (Q-10) in 3rd (€29,200) playing No Limit Hold’em, leaving himself and Scott Clements to battle it out for the bracelet. Clements was hoping to earn a third career bracelet, but a few minutes later his hopes were dashed and so had to settle for a runner-up finish worth €40,645, while Komaromi took full honors. Commenting on his victory, the Uruguayan player said:
“It was a very tough field with a lot of very good players who were more experienced than me, but I was lucky enough to win. I think I ran pretty good in the right moments, when there were eight to ten players left they were all elite players. It was hard to take advantage of most of the spots. But I tried my best and I think I did good and I ran good.”
Final Table Results:
1: Alex Komaromi – €65,740
2: Scott Clements – €40,645
3: Noah Bronstein – €29,200
4: Jonathan Duhamel – €21,065
5: Shaun Deeb – €15,235
6: Jens Lakemeier – €11,025
