Event 21 was the second 8-max Dealer’s Choice event of the World Cup of Cards, this time featuring a buy-in of $200 + $20.
79 players turned up for the tournament, of which the final table of 8 locked in a cash prize. Originally $4,426 of the $15,326 total prize pool was reserved for the eventual winner, however once play fell 9-handed the players decided to pull $100 from each of the top 3 prizes and award it to the eventual 9th place finisher.
The final table featured 2 of the top 3 finishers from the last Dealer’s Choice event, including reigning champion Dave Jeanneau-Cyr – who prior to tonight had already taken down 3 events from this World Cup of Cards. Matthew Bracanovic also made an appearance on the final table for the second time of the day, ending his run in 5th place after a 4th place finish in this afternoon’s Event 20, banking $2,935 in cashes in the process.
No other deal was made, and when heads-up play began between Dave Jeanneau-Cyr and Felix-Antoine Legault, Dave held the 3-to-1 chip lead – and a ton of momentum from his beastly results in this series. Play went back and forth for a little over 2 levels, and although Felix-Antoine managed to even things out at one point, Dave stepped on the gas in the last few hands and regained the chip lead. In the final hand of play, Dave called his short-stacked opponents open-shove from the big blind in a NL Hold’em hand. He tabled , and held for the win versus the of Felix-Antoine. With that pot, he was claimed champion of Event 21, winning his 4th World Cup of Cards Champion’s Trophy!
Congratulations Dave on your epic run!
