Sergei Petrushin wins European Masters of Poker Barcelona
18 Sep 2012
Sergei lifted €56,875 for his victory in the €1,100 buy-in event after almost two hours of heads up play against Josep Maria Galindo Lopez from Spain.
Heads up the two players decided to make a deal leaving €10,000 extra for the winner.
The final hand came when Petrushin raised 200,000 pre-flop, Galindo Lopez pushed all in and, after a countdown which saw him cover Galindo Lopez, Petrushin called.
Petrushin had Kd Qc and Lopez had Ad 8h, the board fell Kc 3c 3s 4d 2d and Petrushin’s pair of kings was good enough for the title.
The final results and payouts were:
1st - Sergei Petrushin - €56,875
2nd - Jose Maria Galindo Lopez - €48,405
3rd - Joakim Rahmouni - €25,750
