The biggest Winamax Poker Open came to an end on Sunday in Dublin post; Karol Wojciechowski from Ireland became the champion of the tournament. There were 1,191 entries in total for the game and the winner was given €89,716. The highest cash prize he won before this tournament was €19,940 and he collected the award in Dublin itself in another tournament.
On the 3rd day, 17 players were left and many quick exits began to reduce the field into just 2 tables. Matthieu Lamagnere from France started the day as a chip leader and continued to maintain his lead for the best part of the action. Lamagnere continued to hammer at the tournament and eliminated Dominique Potenza. Wojciechowski came from behind and gave Macdonnel a bit of vengeance as he scored an Ace on the river to grab a big chunk out of Langner’s stack. Lastly, when the table was set at the final state, Wojciechowski sat in the lead. He got Antoine Fontaine out and later on sent Quang Liu Zhi on the rail. Thereafter, only 4 players were left and 3 out of whom were Irishmen.
