Event 11 of the World Cup of Cards was a mixed event, where the game would alternate from NL Hold’em to Pot Limit Omaha from one round to another. Over 100 players turned up for the event, and once the re-entry period was over, the total number of entries climbed up to 130.
Andre Pelletier won a massive pot leading up to the final table, and although he saw much variance in his chip count throughout the last few levels of play, he ended the night with all of the chips in play.
Once heads-up play began between Andre and Glen Alexander Meehan, they paused the clock to work out a small deal. As Andre has the chip advantage, he locked in a prize of $2,700, and Glen took $2,500. The tournament does require a winner, and at least 2% of the prize pool must be set aside for the eventual champion, who also wins a WCC Champion’s Trophy – so $250 was left aside to play for, as well as the title.
Within a few moments of play, they were both dealt a 4-card hand they deemed worthy of an all-in, and in a pot / re-pot battle all the chips went into the middle pre-flop. Glen tabled , but was beat by the of Andre, who improved to aces-up on the board to be crowned Event 11 champion.
Event 11 Champion: Andre Pelletier – $2,950.00
Event 11 runner-up: Glen Alexander Meehan – $2,500.00
