British man, Alan Carr brings home a huge prize after winning the Unibet Open in Malta. The entry fee to the main event was 1,100 euros, and 327 entries were made, meaning the prize was enormous for anyone willing to grab.
Alan made the highest victory in his poker career. When only three players were left, the last three poker players made a deal to ensure that the swing was equaled out among them.
Carr qualification to the main event and his first online tournament entry were not expected. He just spent five euros on Unibet Opening event. This amount is playable until one qualify, meaning it’s hard to get into the tournament once they get the one ticket.
Back in England, Carr usually get more cash in games than tournaments. Mathew Ireland, another British player, looked more likely than Carr to succeed in the final table. However, that was not the case as Carr beat the top two into a set of jacks.
Henri Jantunen, Tonio Roeder and Serdar Dermircan were sidelined before the final. Lithuania Deivis Rinkevicius was the only aggressive player, but he was unlucky, the remaining three players thought that protection was the best option. They focused on the minimum win of 44,880 euros, which they considered not bad for the weekend in heated poker haven of Malta.
Carr dealt the Italian player Luca Beretta with a bullet when his card was right. Chris Heidelbecker fell off with $50,266 in his third-place while Beretta cashed $54,376 in his runner-up finish.
Carr won the highest prize of $59,000 for 5.50 Dollars. The event victory might encourage him to swap cash games for tournament poker in the future. This victory has made him to be known in live tournament stage, and that may make his next entry much more comfortable.
Carr victory was impressive, and his route to victory made him worthy of being noted, from his journey of registering with 5.50 dollar by mistake, winning a $55 ticket, using that to win the second $275 ticket and finally heading to the main event seat. Now, Carr goes down as a Unibet poker champion, he will serve as an inspiration for other grinders who wish to win big in poker.
