Jared Mahoney has won the 2015 Partypoker.net WPT Montreal!
After an epic 6-handed Final Table that continued for almost 200 hands of poker – a good many of these part of a huge 3-way battle followed by a tense heads-up battle with Darryll Fish that saw very little between the two players – Jared emerged victorious. For his victory, Jared has won $433,410.00, the Playground Poker Club Champion’s Belt, his name etched permanently on the WPT Champion’s trophy, an entry in the World Poker Tour Tournament of Champions, and last (but most definitely not least) a beautiful Hublot Oceanographic watch!
An experienced player both online and live, Jared had never cashed for more than $32K in a live poker tournament. He has (published) cashes dating back to 2007, however, and a solid online resume to boot. This victory was clearly a long time coming for a talented player who took care of business in a solid, matter-of-fact fashion on the final table, weathering bad beats and huge pots with equal aplomb.
The final hand seemed to come out of nowhere. Jared and opponent Darryll Fish had already played 33 hands heads-up and even just 4-5 hands before the last one there were no more than 4 antes between their respective stacks! The final hand began with a raise from Jared to 1M chips. Darryll’s response was quick: all-in – and Jarred called just as quickly.
Jared was well ahead and dominating Darryll, and the flop of meant that only a deuce or running diamonds could save Darryll. The on the turn took away Darryll’s back door draws and the on the river gave Jared his largest victory to date.
For his part, Darryll takes home $304,343.00 for second place, which is also his largest single live tournament cash to date!
Congratulations to both players!
