It all came down to a K♡, 4♧ for Sunny Mistri, who took home £35,000 in the partypoker Grand Prix Poker Tour at Stamford Bridge stadium in London this weekend. Players turned out in masses – 3,200 to be exact – for the second leg of the tour’s debut season, which took place in the home of the Chelsea Football Club.
Mistri finished Day 1 of the £250,000 guaranteed Main Event with a substantial stack of 729,000 chips, which put him in third place entering the second day. By the time the last nine reached the final table, Mistri’s stack had increased to 13 million. A three-way all-in clash at the beginning of the final table pitted Chunk Pak, Hristo Genov, and Martyna Valkunas against one another.
Pak was the only one remaining after the face off and the final table got into full gear with seven players left. The next finalist to fall was Vincent Sanchez, who went all-in with 9♡, 9♢ against Tony Vu’s Q♧, Q♤. The board showed an unhelpful K♢, 8♧, 3♢, A♡, 7♧ and Sanchez went home with £4,830 in seventh.
Seelantha Kangaha and Dave Mundle were eliminated shortly thereafter; Mundle’s A♡, 8♢ fell to Vu’s A♢, K♢. The final four saw its first action when Mistri shoved all-in from the small blind with J♤, 7♤ and Tim Rowlands called with A♧, Q♧. A jack on the flop (K♢, J♢, 6♢) put Mistri out front. Running threes on the turn and river sent Rowlands home with £11,790.
The final three saw a huge pot between the chip leaders. Vu bet all in with a K♢, 8♡ against Mistri’s A♤, 9♧. Both player’s spiked a pair on the flop but Mistri’s aces dominated Vu’s eights. When heads-up play began, Mistri held 47.25 million chips against Chung’s 6.75 million, making the outcome all but a certainty.
The final hand saw Chung all-in with 8♡, 3♢ against Mistri’s K♡, 4♧. The board gave Mistri trip kings and Chung two pair (K♧, K♤, 8♧, 3♧, 7♤), leading the Northamptonshire resident to the biggest win of his career.
