Giovanni Rosadoni Wins 2nd WSOPE Event For France

Giovanni Rosadoni Wins 2nd WSOPE Event For FranceA few days ago we were commenting on how France hadn’t managed to win a single WSOPE bracelet despite the series running for six years, two of which have been hosted in Cannes. What a difference a week makes, though, as following Roger Hairabedian’s triumph at WSOPE Event#3: €5,300 Pot-Limit Omaha for €142,590 ($183,272), Giovanni Rosadoni has now added a second bracelet to the country’s WSOPE haul.
On this occasion, Rosadoni was able to defeat a field of 141 players over three days to take down Event#4: €3,250 No-Limit Hold’em Shootout, to collect a bracelet and walk away richer to the tune of €107,614. Following his impressive victory at his first ever WSOP event, the business owner commented: “I am very proud of myself because I have only been playing poker for two years.”
Amongst those notable players cashing in at the tournament but falling short of the 9 seated final table was Faraz Jaka (17th), Daniel Negreanu (16th), Mohsin Charania (13th) and Phil Hellmuth (12th).
At the final table, Giovanni Rosadoni (A-A) then doubled-up against Trond Aanensen (A-K) and soon after US pro Dan O’Brien took the Norweigan’s few remaining chips to send him to the rail in 8th for €12,564. In fact O’Brien was on a tear at the final table and also eliminated John Duthie (9th), Paul Guichard (6th), Adrien Allain (5th), Oleksii Kovalchuk (4th) and John Monnette (3rd) before going heads-up against Giovanni Rosadoni.
At this stage, Dan O’Brien held a 2 to 1 chip advantage over Giovanni Rosadoni and even managed to extend his lead to 5 to 1 before losing with A-K against his opponent’s pocket queens. Thereafter, Rosadoni was able to draw even and eventually reduced O’Brien to a short-stack, who then pushed with K-J into Rosadoni’s pocket queens. With no help from the board, three hours of heads-up play came to an end and Dan O’Brien finished the runner-up for €66,503, while Giovanni Rosadoni was crowned the €3,250 NLHE Shootout champion.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1. Giovanni Rosadoni, €107,614
2. Dan O’Brien, €66,503
3. John Monnette, €48,177
4. Oleksii Kovalchuk, €35,560
5. Adrien Allain, €26,724
6. Paul Guichard, €20,434
7. Roman Romanovskyi, €15,890
8. Trond Aanensen, €12,564
9. John Duthie, €10,095
