Final Day preview: Payouts, chip leader, notable names and more34066666914_3dc9aba2a9_z.jpg.50bc409e9f8fe7b190f9496264523a0a.jpg

Play has just resumed here in Copenhagen for the final day of the Unibet Open. 13 players remain to battle it out for the top prize of DDK 562,300 which is roughly around €7,500. Monica Vaka, from Norway leads the pack with a stack of around 1,880,000. She is the last woman remaining in the tournament and is looking to become the first ever woman to win a Unibet Open event.34794471431_50dca50a4d_o.thumb.jpg.e44143b6e880f3841db9a67b81d0b28f.jpg

 With around $22,000 in lifetime earnings, its apparent that winning this event would mean a lot for Monica. 

She, along with the other 12 players currently have DDK 44,500 locked up, which is around €6,000. 

Her eyes will surely be on the top prize however, and the title of Unibet Open Copenhagen winner.

Kaarel Lepik continued his fierce charge from Day 1, as he ended Day 2 third in chips with a stack of around 1,750,000. 

 

The blinds today start at 15,000/30,000 with a 4,000 ante, meaning the top three stacks will have around 58BBs to 62BBs, which could make for a fairly deep final table should we get any early casualties.

Ardai's tournment over
We're down to 11 players and creep closer to the final table. Thomas Ardai went all in AK up against QQ in the hands of Sigurd Carlsson.

The board then came out 99547 sealing the end of Ardai's tournament and growing the tension for the other players who know they're getting closer to the final table.

So long Soren

The first player we have lost from the final table is Soren Hansen who after raising his button got the one call from Peter Harkes in the defence of his big blind. Hansen had 109 up against the A6 of Harkes.

The flop coming out A63 was great for Harkes who after checking called Hansen's bet of 75,000.

The turn then came out K making the board A63K, with Harkes again checking before calling Hansen's bet of 225,000.

A J came on the river to complete the board as A63KJ, with a 3rd check from Harkes Hansen saw this as an opportunity and shoved all in and left the table after losing once Harkes called. 

Hansen had a great tournament and finishing 9th saw him cash for DKK56,100 which roughly equates to €7,573.

Farewell Florian

The final table of the Unibet Open Copenhagen has lost another player, losing Florian Lanz in 8th place cashing for DDK70,100  which is roughly €9,463.

Lanz had been short stacked for quite a while and had been struggling to find an opportunity to go all in and try to get himself in a better position. Eventually looking down to see 83 in his hand he went all in getting the one call from Estonian Kaarel Lepik who turned over J8.

The board came out 10K6A9 with no real drama as previous favourite Lepik eliminated Lanz.

Vaka no more

34812641471_546844746a_o.thumb.jpg.a34490c4dab34e7eecd8b5890b3ee739.jpg

The final table now has 6 players remaining as we just lost former chip leader Monica Vaka, who had gotten quite short stacked and was just unable to make a hand.

She was left with 540,000 and after looking at her hand of 55 decided to go all in getting just the one call from Mikael Johansson who turned over KK.

The board then came out AQ86Q, eliminating Monica who has had a great tournament and should be proud of how she has played. The hand practically doubled Johansson up as he only just had Vaka's stack covered.

Martin Wendt out

34906034876_0ac65aeb78_o.thumb.jpg.d62e98b05e620f78ff654b1db8ea1277.jpgMartin Wendt has bust the main event final table cashing for DKK109,400 which equates to roughly €14,769. 

Sigurd Carlsson was the player who called Wendt who had 99 versus 1010 in the hand of Carlsson. Wendt put his stack all in for 910,000 which if he doubled up would have his position much more comfortable. 

The board then came out 276A8 with Wendt losing to Carlsson's higher play.

Then there were four34944658835_1d156ba75d_o.thumb.jpg.da219e376d6ae990bc507e8eea9cb570.jpgWe are now down to the final 4 players in the main event of the Unibet Open Copenhagen 2017 Deivis Rinkevicius who bust in a hand against chip leader Sigurd Carlsson.

With his stack starting to get short Deivis was looking for a spot to go all in and thought that he had found it when he went all in with KQ and then got a call from Sigurd Carlsson who had 109.

The board then came out 1068A3, placing Rinkevicius in 5th as he lost to Carlsson's pair of 10's. 

Rinkevicius should be proud as he cashed for a very respectable DKK142,200 which is roughly€19,197.

We have our top three34781110602_4db7dd3aca_o.thumb.jpg.3c52694c71d1847555defdb3d89dec9d.jpgThe main event is very close to the final three as Mikael Johansson finished the tournament in 4th place and cashed for DDK185,000 which as an estimate is about €25,003.

Johansson went out with J8 versus 44 in the hands of Kaarel Lepik.

The board then came out 7A35K, in this spot Jack high was no good for Johansson and leaving him eliminated in 4th place and the table one player away from going heads up.

With blinds currently at 80,000/ 160,000 Sigurd Carlsson is currently looking like the favourite to win the tournament as he is sitting on 81 big blinds compared to the 20 big blinds Kaarel Lepik is sittong on. 

It is all still to play for though and a couple of double ups and Lepik's chances of winning will be greatly improved.

We have a winner124078796_WhatsAppImage2017-05-27at12_05_04.thumb.jpeg.725916cbcb4b60d2d92c854414fde4e7.jpegAfter spending most of his time whilst playing heads up the shorter stack, Kaarel Lepik finally came from behind and won the tournament after both he and Sigurd Carlsson played brilliantly.

The winning hand wasn't absolute drama but capped off what had been a very interesting spell of heads up poker. 

Going down to 585,000 there was only one option when Carlsson looked down to see K3 and almost instantly got called by Lepik who had K9.

The board cameout 10Q923, sealing the victory for Lepik and ending the Unibet Open Copenhagen 2017 with roars of celebration from Lepik's vocal rail. Lepik will be going home with DKK562,300 which is roughly €75,719.

Unibet Open Copenhagen 2017 - Event Review1093653027_WhatsAppImage2017-05-28at22_25_17.thumb.jpeg.6484f06e5f67cea2576f3830fc9db9d2.jpeg

 It's been a long five days here in Copenhagen but unfortunately, the Unibet Open is over.

From the eSports sit & go to all the side events, from the player's party to the 3-day main event, it has truly been an event to remember. 

On Wednesday, nine twitch streamers took centre stage for the eSports Battle Royale. Kim Larsson (Papa Dreyich) took that down for a nice prize and the bragging rights of being the best eSporter. For now that is anyway...

 

So, to the main event and 404 players from all over the world came to battle it out for the Unibet Open Copenhagen title and reap the profits that poured out of a prize pool that was over 2,900,000DDK. 

1446746907_WhatsAppImage2017-05-28at22_25_15.thumb.jpeg.3b0fc20937f05495e75501e7192cf47e.jpegThe eventual winner, Kaarel Lepik, was on fire the whole tournament. He finished Day 1B as an overwhelming chip leader with 385,000. With a combination of solid play and inherrent run good, Lepik managed to grind the final table to come heads up with Sigurd Carlsson who hails from the Faroe Islands. 

In a topsy turvy heads up game, Lepik went from having a slight disadvantage at first, to then losing a lot of chips making questionable calls.

However, sheer determination paid off and a couple of doubles up later, and the stacks were even.

What happened next has to be described as the cooler of the tournament, as Sigurd's trips ran into the wheel of Lepik. There was no real possible comeback for Sigurd after this, as Lepik had 99% of the chips in play.

And the very next hand it was all over, and Lepik was the champion. After satelliting into the main event on Thursday for 1,100DDK, he managed to beat 403 other opponents to scoop the title and a massive 562,300DDK which is roughly €75,000, a massive achievement for a semi-professional poker player.

All in all, it's been a great week of poker, socialising and all round having fun. 
Thank you to everyone who tuned in and I hope you enjoyed the content we provided. On behalf of me and Tom who have been blogging the event this week, thank you very much for reading and thank you to the Unibet employees for making us feel welcome.
