WotR “Hörertreffen” 2009: Party, chicks and a trip to sardinia

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009 | Tournaments | 1 Comment

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I played the final table of the Webmasters on the Roof Series of Poker (WotR) in Munich on Saturday, 24th. The event was hosted by Mediadonis and Fridaynite and sponsored by Everest Poker, which all made an incredible job. The location, the 089 Bar in Munich, was also great and the party really amazing.

And best of all, Silke Burghardt and I survived the final table (besides Marcus and Fridaynite) and therefore won the two tickets to Sardinia in May to play the final EPEC 2009 tournament. We started with 4.000$ chips and blinds of 25$/50$. I really had no hands and played only four hands the whole tournament. With an M-ratio of 2, I had to call an all-in move with K9 against the AQ of Marcus. I turned a full house (Kings full of nines) so I doubled up and survived. Sorry Marcus! In the end, the last player was eliminated by Silke.

In Sardinia, there will be about 200 participants, who qualified in several Everest Poker events (live and online poker). The prize pool of this tournament is overall $100.000. The tournament’s prize structure has not been published yet.

Here are some pictures of this fantastic evening:

At the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) 2009 on the Bahamas, the players from Germany are really incredible:

  1. Team Germany wins the World Cup of Poker V and is therefore the inofficial Team-World Champion. Every Member of the team wins $20.000.
  2. In the 5000$ side-event of the PCA 2009, two German players reached the final table. Florian Langmann finished in second place behind Peter Eastgate, the winner of the wsop main event 2008 and Jan “50 outs” von Halle finished in ninth place. Florian Langmann gets $184.300 and Jan von Halle $25.000. Peter Eastgate, the winner of this event, enhanced his bankroll with $343.000.

Last but not least Benny Spindler, a 23 year old German player, finished in third place at the main event of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) and received $1.100.000. After 5 hours of play in a threesome, Benny Spindler lost an important flop with A K against A 8 (his opponent made a full house) and was then extreme short-stacked. After that, Benny Spindler lost his last chips to Poorya Nazari, who finally wins the tournament against Tony Gregg.

Also mentionable is the ninth place of Jan Collado Fernandez in the same event. He was busted only one place before the final table. Overall twelve players form Germany finished in the money at the main event of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) 2009.

Here are the results and the payouts of the final table:
