Andjelko Andrejevic Wins WPT Amsterdam Main Event

Posted by Kathleen Girvan on May 18, 2016 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »



The €3,300 Main Event Main Event at the World Poker Tour Amsterdam has been won by the Serbian poker professional Andjelko Andrejevic for a massive jackpot of $227,876.

The final table was dominated by another player, Anthony Zinno, who had won the event the last three times he had been on the final table. Many were convinced that he’d be making this his record-breaking fourth victory at the Amsterdam WPT but it wasn’t to be so. Zinno wasn’t even the star of the show, as the final table had some other big players – it was a tense game with lots to play for. The chip leader in the game was Andjelko Andrejevic, who brought 67 big blinds to the table, while his rival Senh Ung started out the shortest with only 16 big blinds. Despite having the fewest chips, Ung wasn’t the first to be knocked out. Dutch player Hans Bosman was first out after he had a horrendous start to the final game. He lost around half his stack of chips to Zinno in the first hand when he ran two pair into a higher two pair, and then Bosman made his exit just a couple minutes later.

Seth Ung then followed Bosman as he crashed out second. His game started off slow but didn’t manage to gain much more momentum. Emrah Cakmak’s stack was gradually decreasing during the entire day, and he was forced to make a move with ace-six. Tomas Fara then played an ace-jack in the big blind and called. After a number of blanks, the final table was down to just three remaining players.

It took some time to get to the heads-up finale. Zinno was next to be knocked out, when the three-time WPT champion found himself short and was forced to leave his first-ever WPT final table without gaining a first place trophy. He did receive compensation in the form of a cash prize of €90,460. After Zinno, the table was down to Andrejevic and Fara. It seemed like Andrejevic was firmly in control of the game, even after losing some pots that could have scuppered his chances of winning. He wasn’t fazed by his brief spell of bad luck, and pulled off an excellent comeback.

Andrejevic retook the lead in the game and ended it decisively soon after. He pushed all in with eight-seven and Fara called with king-nine. An eight on the flop helped Andrejevic take the lead. he was then crowned the 2016 World Poker Tour Amsterdam champion and collected the €200,000 first-place cash prize, as well as his free ticket to the WPT Tournament of Champions event at the end of the season, worth an additional $15,000.
