Sixty-four-year-ole, Roger Hairabedian has been taking down live poker titles for some time. The Frenchman, known as “Terminator,” knows the ropes for sure.
Hairabedian, who now resides in Marrakech has over $5 million in live tournament winning to his credit. In fact, cashing half a dozen times already at the PLO High Roller Event.
Plenty of drama…
After forking over 60 entries in the 2020 King’s Casino event, “Big Roger” enjoyed victory at the felt. In one weekend, the previous winner of two World Series of Poker bracelets took down €40,401 at King’s Casino.
The casino coup happened on the Czech-German border in the largest cardroom in Europe. It was an event full of drama, especially when it got down to the final seven places.
At play were Harry Casagrande, Eric Lescot, Jonas Kronwitter, Ossama Khamis, and Christian Stratmeyer – all to be eliminated. After his rivals went bust, Hairabedjian, the chip leader, still had lingering hopes.
In the end, it was his day. No one could outrun him as he continued his run of domination and sent everyone home. It was a great show as one by one, the last few’s luck ran out.
It ended with Stratmeyer in second with a prize of €29,176, Lescot taking third at €18,596 and Casagrande leaving in fourth position with €14,107. Clearly, Hairabedian is adding continuing to his profit column.
Plus, he has attained his first major title since the beginning of the pandemic, a time of increased interest in online poker. Hopefully this will not be his final fantastic table performance.
