It wasn’t a big entry pool – only 96 people – but the 2016 World Poker Tour Amsterdam €6,000 High Roller attracted 20 more players than last year and generated an impressive prizepool of €531,084. After an extra day, Robert Soogea emerged victorious and claimed the €150,000 top prize, doubling his career earnings.
The final table of eight started with Soogea in the lead and he maintained the top spot as Geoffrey Mooney and Patricio Rojas Parra fell in eighth and seventh, respectively. Diego Zeiter sent Luuk Gieles home in sixth when his A♡, 7♢ stayed ahead of Gieles’ K, J.
Juha Helppi was the biggest name at the final table, but Atanas Kavravkov kicked him out of the running. On Helppi’s final hand, the Finn went all-in before the flop with a Q♧, J♤ against Kavravkov’s A♡, 7♧. An unlucky A♤, A♢, 3♡ flop sealed the win with the set.
The final three players fought for so long that the tournament was extended an extra day. Soogea, Kavravkov, and Fatih Aydin played until 3:00 a.m. – the casino’s closing time – and Aydin had the lead with 2.06 million chips.
Aydin, however, would be the first to go on the final day; his big stack took a big hit when Kavravkov doubled up. Soogea then finished the job.
Soogea’s started head’s-up play with the chip lead and never gave it up. On the final hand, Kavravkov was all-in with K♧, 8♡ against Soogea’s pocket sixes. The flop gave him (Q♧, J♢, 9♢) put him on a straight draw, but a 7♢ on the turn and 9♧ on the river kept the sixes ahead to stay.
Kavravkov won $104,917 in the runner-up slot.
