Simon Assouline has just been crowned Champion of Event #10, the $220 8-Max Freezeout. After a seesaw battle at the final table that saw the chip lead change hands several times, Assouline emerged victorious.
Assouline had been among the chip leaders from the early stages of the tournament, and he arrived at the final table with an imposing stack. Once a few players had left the final table, Assouline began bleeding chips, often having to fold to other player’s all-ins after having made an opening bet. But he managed to maintain a playable stack until it was down to heads up.
When heads-up play began, Spencer Jean-Baptiste had most of the chips. But two hands were enough to get Assouline the victory. Both hands were all in before the flop; Assouline managed to make a flush when he was all in with against to take the chip lead. Not long after, he called Jean-Baptiste’s pre-flop all in with and claimed the Champion’s Trophy.
Event #10 Champion: Simon Assouline – $3,900.00
