If you’re looking for a summer holiday destination, may we suggest Tallinn, Estonia? It’s one of those places that’s easy on the eye regardless of the season, but particularly picturesque during summer. This is probably one of the factors that led to the Estonian capital being selected by the MPN Poker Tour as a venue worthy of a return, and this alone is sure to attract many players. Another reason is the success of the first time Tallinn played host to the MPNPT last year, when the poker itself was exciting and a good time was had by all, as they say.  Read more

Poker News Latest: Heinz varieties help win $8,715,638

November 9, 2011 by  
Filed under Angus Dunnington, News

Pius Heinz must be feeling full of beans (ahem) right now, being the new WSOP Main Event winner and a not too shabby $8,715,638 richer.

Back in the summer Heinz, 22, was one of 6865 players who arrived at the Rio in Las Vegas with their eyes on the prize, the field being gradually thinned down over 12 long days. This left the survivors able to take a long break to eventually reconvene as the November Nine final table in the Penn and Teller Theatre. A good number of poker purists are very much opposed to having the final table battle it out months after they earned the right to play for the title, and they have a good point but, the importance of the media being what it is nowadays, this modern scheduling twist seems like an inevitable ‘development’ in the organisers’ efforts to maximise (and prolong) exposure.

Heinz started seventh in chips but emerged in the lead when only three players remained in contention. He won’t have been too concerned at being demoted to second of two against Martin Staszko of the Czech Republic because this meant he was guaranteed a payout of $5,433,086, although the extra $3 million and the coveted bracelet no doubt provided an incentive to remain focused and overturn the chip counts of 117.3 million to 88.6 million.

The crucial hand saw Staszko limp in from the button and Heinz raise to 7.9 million in the big blind. Staszko called and the flop came Tc7cKs, Heinz bet 8.2 million, Staszko raised to 17.5 million and, after a long think, Heinz announced all-in for roughly 70 million. Staszko called with Qc9c and Heinz revealed AhQh…

Despite cries of ‘He’s ahead!’ from his fans Heinz could easily have found himself in the soup given the hat full of enemy outs he needed to avoid, but when the turn brought the 3h and the river an equally irrelevant 6s he shot to a very healthy chip lead of 161.5 million to Staszko’s 44.4 million. Shortly after Staszko shoved with Tc7c but failed to beat AsKc and it was all over.

Until next summer, that is, when thousands more will once again turn up in Vegas, most with the confidence boost provided by the fact that an unknown player is likely to win the biggest prize.

Good luck at the tables!
