PokerStars Championship confirms the status of one of the most popular European poker events. Being held during the festival, the National Championship with €1,100 buy-in collected an impressive number of 4,557 registrations. It set a record for live tournaments held under the auspices of PokerStars.
A huge field supposes a large variance and unexpected results. This tournament was no exception. The victory in the championship was won by Argentinean amateur Pedro Cairat. This payment was the first one in Pedro’s career. Moreover, he claims that he took part in a live tournament for the first time.
All Cairat’s way at this tournament looks like a fictional story of incredible luck. On the first day, his stack was down to one blind, but he managed to return to the game.
Cairat started the finals being the last. The well-known Belgian Bart Lybaert had the lead. However, Pedro survived the starting hands and began to win the next ones at the decisive moment of the tournament - in the top 5. Initially, he defeated Lithuanians Agnius Ismailovas and Greek Nikolaos Lampropoulos, and eliminated Lybaert and Romanian Marius Gicovanu after the deal had been concluded.
Pedro Cairat €432,178
Marius Gicovanu - €372,349
Bart Lybaert - €368,470
Nikolaos Lampropoulos - €208,000
Agnius Ismailovas - €165,000
Angel Blanco - €127,000
