June 2019 State Champs Wrap Up
Congratulations to the new JUNE VIC State Championships WINNER Stuart Sharp hailing from MAC's HOTEL - North West Region. 443 runners Stuart crowned champ winning the full $8,500 CASH and securing a seat to the 2020 APL Millions.
Total Prize pool $27,350
Congratulations to our runner up Clayton Phillips from FERNTREE GULLY HOTEL winning $4,100.00 also claiming his first 2020 APL Millions seat.
At the top 4 the field went into lockdown discussing a chop for around 5 minutes, at this stage Stuart had the majority of the chips. With a deal in sight a fire must of been ignited as stuart pushed back and said we will play for the rest of the level. Soon Chris droped out just before a blinds were raised taking home his second ticket. With no re-disscussion of a split they played on. Jovan Mitrovski was the next to fall coming in at 3rd taking home his first ticket.
Then it was heads up arguably the best part of poker, where you get to test out your wit and fortitude against another human being. All the information you gathered across the day comes into full bloom, if you falter at this pointy end of the game kiss good-bye to your chips and any chance of winning.
Clayton phillips was arguably the most competitive clearly crunching his numbers on every hand, his hands were suttly shaking unlikely for Stuart to see from across the table but just enough for the audience to see. Clayton asked half way through heads up what his opponent would do with the money, a tactic to distract Stuart? Either way it did not work as Stuart took down the win!
LAST HAND: Stuart with the chip lead had the botton, Blinds were $200,000 $400,000 with no antes.
Stats: Clayton had 46.5% to Stuarts 53.5% when the chips went in!
A big thank you to all the bad beats, lucky flops, bricky turns and TILTING rivers we had a weekend at VENETO CLUB, who did a great job in hosting us all!
