Champ Of Poker Wins Monster Chip Purse 829k With A Lucky Flop

The main event of Europe 2017 World Series of Poker (WSOP) is now over and the winner of the bracelet is Marti Roca de Torres from Spain, which, according to “was player, with the least experienced at the final table.”

During the tournament, he does not require much experience with having one key on hand during the game, which is a huge win from Day 3 of the event. Now, let check the details breaking it down.  On day 3 Roca with Jack-10 of spades raises pre-flop with the chip bet of 11,500. On the other hand, his competitor, Ole Schemion, has nothing but a 5 of clubs and 6 of hearts, calls the raise as the big blind, this move of Schemion gave him enough discount to see the flop.

In practically any other hand, Out comes the flop is a great news for the off suit of 6-5: its 7-8-9. However, as you would have picked up, it was horrendous news for Schemion… as Roca too has a straight, and was the better one. Uh-oh.

Read, this as it will give an important lesson to players who want to know as how handle the hands this. After Schemion a check, the move of Roca was, throwing in 13,500 chips. The bet became huge and enough to entice an opponent of Roca. After that move, Schemion raised a power move to send an indication that he has got something, however Roca calls.

A 4 on the turn, and after this Roca calls a Schemion bet again. Roca was holding Jack-10 suited. So, there is no way Schemion could have folded this hand.

The river is a 2 of clubs. Schemion was all comfortable with that, he goes all-in, than Roca calls it right away.
