The final event in the TonyBet Winter Festival was Event 13, a $100 + $20 + $100 NL Hold’em $100 50/50 Bounty tournament. The eliminations came quickly from the very beginning of the tournament, but with 245 players it still took almost 10 hours to complete. As is common for the final event in a festival, the mood in the room was light as some Playground staff mingled with the other players to cap off a great two weeks of poker.
The end of the event was both sudden and remarkable. Fabien Domenech was able to eliminate the 2 other players who remained in the tourney in a single hand.
Fabien’s Queens held and both other players were eliminated.
Event 13 Champion: Fabien Domenech, $3,935$ (+ 9 Bounties)
2nd place: Prosper Azoulay, $3,420 (+ 3 Bounties)
3rd place: Sébastien Gélinas, $3,540$ (+ 3 Bounties)
