Jorryt Van Hoof Takes Aussie Million Event

Jorryt Van Hoof has time and again proved that he is a class. In the recent Aussie Millions, he proved that yet again. He has won yet another event in 2020 Aussie Millions. He won the A$25,000 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha Challenge. The Dutch Player becomes one of the most prominent figures in Poker History as he grabs another win. The Crown Casino witnesses another big win from the masterclass player.
He received a massive score of A$467,280 thanks to the A$25000 buy-in Pol Limit Omaha Challenge. His victory also cements his place as the No 1 ranked Dutch Player. It wasn’t an easy win for him and there was a touch competition at the table. Hun lee was making all progress with his chip lead from last night. It was a battle that Van Hoof had to win with his class and he did it.

Van Hoof became a famous name during the WSOP Event in 2014. Since then he has been a prominent name in the history of Poker players. He didn’t ditch the expectations this time around. He has remained on modest performances in the last five years but this time he stepped up in super high roller. However, he managed to win more victories than since then and superseded Marcel Luske. Luske was the finest Dutch Player before him.

Hun Lee was in tremendous form and was leading with the chips on the first day. Van Hoof had to stay in the contention along with others to stay in the scheme of things. He simply tried to hold on to the things before the final day arrived.

During the final day, Sylvain Loosli and Xue Wu were still battling it out. However, they were ousted before the final table. British WSOP bracelet winner Stephen Chidwick busted Tam Truong to make the final nine of the table.

Lee continued to have the lead but Chidwick was slowly gaining on him. Sensing the trouble, Lee pushed hard for the final push. He busted Ben Pockett at the 9th place and Miroslav Sheynin at the 8th place. Both of them were ousted without any profit.

Lee was in total control of the game. He then busted Farid Jattin of Colombia out of the table at the 7th place. Soon, it was Fabian Brandes at the 6th place who fell to Lee and was busted from the final table.

Van Hoof had to push and improve and he started off well by pushing Chidwick out of the game. His stack was improved a lot and one of the most dangerous players was removed from the table.

Lee continued to charge and busted Martin Kozlov. However, things started turning bad for Lee when he lost two very crucial points against Najeem Ajez. However, Van Hoof busted Ajez and got enough chips to go into the heads up. Van Hoof’s trips were bettered by the full house of Lee. However, Van Hoof rallied throughout and got the lead again by 2:1 just before the time when the chips were into the middle for the very final time in Omaha Challenge.

But the fortune changed for Van Hoof this time around. His trips were improved to a Full House. Hun Lee was drawing dead and Van Hoof got his hands on the trophy.
