Thanks to his stellar performance, Asi Moshe, a 35-year old Israeli, has won the $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Bounty event, taking his WSOP bracelets’ tally to three. In addition to the shiny gold bracelet, he also won $253,933.
The tournament attracted a total of 1,807 entries and the prize pool was a whopping $2,439,450. Out of 1,807 entries, only 272 players were guaranteed a trip to the cashier for a slice of the prize-pool. The min cash was slightly below the $1,500 buy-in at $1,414. The tournament lasted three days.
Moshe started stacking chips from the onset and by the time the final table was commencing, he already had an unassailable chip lead.
Here’s what he said after the win:
“It really feels amazing, each one feels so different. This year the traveling was really hard. I have a wife and a daughter, who is 2 1/2, and I love them both so very much, so being here for the summer wasn’t easy for me and it’s not easy for them, and this really makes it worth it, it’s really special for me.”
Asi Moshe runs final table
Coming into day 3, Asi Moshe was among the chip leaders, he had the second biggest stack.
The final table comprised of 9 players all of whom are professional poker players. As fate would have it, Bastian Fischer was the first player to be shown the door by Moshe.
It didn’t take long before Harrison Gimbel was also sent to the rails after his queen-nine offsuit fell to Vitalijs Zavorotnijs’ pocket jacks.
In addition, Timothy Stephens was eliminated in the 7th place by Zavorotnijs. After Stephens’ elimination, it only took 9 hands before Andrew Hills was eliminated in the 6th place by Damjan Radanov.
Zavorotnijis luck later ran out and he was sent packing by Moshe in fifth place for $61,058.
There was no way the four-handed play was to be a fair fight. Moshe already had a huge chip lead and from his aggressiveness, he was not prepared to give it up.
Patrick Troung was the next player to fall to Asi Moshe. His pocket threes were no match for Moshe’s pair of aces. He won $82,764.
After taking all of Troung’s chips, Moshe had a commanding 7:1 lead over the remaining two players. However, it didn’t take long before Toni Roder almost spoiled the party after several exchanges. Moshe was only able to win back some of his chips after winning two big pots which handed him a 3:1 chip advantage.
Unluckily, A bluff by Roder four hands into level 35 did not go to plan and he was eliminated in third place for $113,360.
The heads up play lasted a mere 6 hands before Radanov, who only had chips amounting to 12 big blinds, was forced all in from the small blind. Radanov held to ten-eight suited while Moshe had four-three suited. A four on the river won the pot and the tournament for Asi Moshe and Radanov was eliminated in second place for $156,875.
