Luc Greenwood Wins the Event 6 of the Australian Open Event

Poker

Canadian Player Luc Greenwood took the Winner Trophy in the recently concluded Australian Open Event. Greenwood pocketed huge A$700,000 by defeating Mikita Badziakouski from Belarus in the heads-up.

This was the sixth of the seven events in the Australian Open Event. There was only Main Event left and extra A$50,000 available for the eventual winner of the game. There was a lot at stake and it was visible in the final table. It started with a bang and Chino Rheem got into a big pot after Greenwood’s bluff got through.

There was touch competition and no one was really ready to give an inch of the place. However, it was Michael Addamo from Australia who got eliminated from the final table. He took Greenwood on but he didn’t have the hand and played with the nut flush draw. He could not, however, hit Greenwood’s top pair. He was the fifth person to leave the table. However, the game was still wide open.

Chino Rheem could not really recover from the bluff of Greenwood. Rheem confidently moved all-in with the ace-deuce. He was up against the opening bet of Greenwood. He was waiting for this opportunity and made the call with ace-jack. The overnight Chipleader Chine Rheem was out of the contention very quickly as Greenwood continued to booster his chances.

Andras Nemeth from Hungary has been leading in the Australian Open Event so far. However, he was knocked out in third place. He moved with king jack-diamond. Greenwood saw eight-five of the same suit and picked up a draw on the flop. He doubled the gutter ball chances in the next turn as well. Greenwood’s straight came as River and Nemeth were out of the event. He could manage only 150 points but not 300 points, what he desired. However, Andras Nemeth sits comfortably at the leaderboard at the event. However, magical performance at the Main Event can help him unseat from the Championship.

Heads up were not mandatory but it was carried out. Mikita Badziakouski had lesser chips and in order to bolster his chances, he moved in with jack-three. Greenwood comfortably called the King-Queen and took the Event 6 of the Australian Open Event.

After the final results, Greenwood looked quite excited and said that he had to fight for the trophy and he is really glad that he won the event.
