The Crazy $80 was a new addition to the line-up in the Playground Poker Fall Classic, and featured a lower range buy-in with multiple flights played during the weekday afternoons. A total of 364 entries took place over 4 starting flight, generating a prize pool of $24,715.00 that was divided into 39 payouts.
Day 1s were played out until the top 10% of the field was reached, meaning that all Day 2 players were guaranteed a payout. Action took off with a fury and before long the tournament reached the 10-handed final table. After a few orbits of play, a hug pot developed between Trevor Adams and Gerald Fehr which spelled Gerald’s elimination, and propelled Trevor into the dominating chip-lead.
Trevor never really looked back after this hand, and maintained the top spot on the leaderboard until the very end of the tournament. Domenico Gallipoli put in his share of work to get to heads-up play, eliminating Gary Biggar in 5th and Scott Aylward in 4th place before starting his duel with Trevor, who eliminated Jean-Pascal Gauthier in 3rd.
Heads-up went on for the better part of a level, before Domenico limp-shoved from the small blind for roughly 20 big blinds and found a call. Domenico tabled and was poised to double-up versus the of Trevor, until a Trevor caught a good river card on the to claim victory in The Crazy $80.
The Crazy $80 champion: Trevor Adams – $5,375.00
