The Las Vegas casino has hosted another of its High Rollers mini-festivals, and three of the four tournaments have ended with the same pair in the lead.
Petrangelo, Ali and Sean (PokerGo)
This past weekend, the Aria has once again ceded part of its poker room to High Rollers from Las Vegas, who have come to the casino to play two $ 10,000 tournaments and two $ 25,000 tournaments, a small variation on the usual arrangement of these tournaments, which is usually three and one.
The amazing thing about these sessions was not the good participation numbers achieved, which have been common in every live poker tournament that is organized in the United States at this time, but because of the curious outcome of the tournaments.
In the first tournament, with 44 entries, the winner was Nick Petrangelo ($ 126,980), and Sean Perry already appeared for the awards, who later became part of the duo that the holder has achieved, and which debuted in the long weekend of the Aria with a fifth place ($ 35,200)
In the next three tournaments, he ended up repeating the same heads-up, between Sean Perry and Ali Imsirovic. The Bosnian-born player got the better of it, winning two of the three games, both of which were $ 25k.
The first victim of this conspiracy was Sergi reixach, which finished third behind the hoarders. At this final table, chosen from among 53 records, there were two Spaniards, well Sergio Aido finished in seventh position.
The first round could be for Sean, who took a loot of $ 169,600
Saturday brought with it the change of buy-in, which had an influence on the record, reduced to 31 entries. With what you’ve read so far, you already know the final result, with $ 310,000 at stake that fell on the side of Imsirovic.
The rematch was served for Sunday in a similar meeting, with only one less entry. Perry failed to prevail and lost another award of $ 300,000.
The one who was missed at the Aria was Phil Hellmuth. Negreanu, who congratulated Ali in his own way by asking if they were playing against the blind or were they that good, has a bet with Hellmuth on whether Poker Brat is able to finish positive after playing 50 of these tournaments, but Hellmuth still hasn’t. has decided to start the challenge.
Stilll waiting for a 15-time bracelet winner to show up
