"C'est un rêve", a indiqué Raffaele Sorrentino quelques secondes après sa victoire sur le Main Event PokerStars Championship Championship presented by Monte-Carlo Casino®. L'Italien encaisse 466,714€ après un deal en head's up contre Andreas Klatt.

Déjà vainqueur du PokerStars National Championship Monte-Carlo 1100€ pour 151 445€ après un deal en head's up avec Romain Lewis, l'Allemand a tenu presque 10 jours en MTT sans sauter. Alors qu'il était avait encore 30 blindes et 6 des 21,8 millions de jetons en jeu, il aura fallu une rencontre {q-}{q-} contre {a-}{a-} sur la 29e main du duel pour le sortir !

Les deux Russes Andrey Bondar et Maxim Panyak terminent 3e et 4e pour 271 500€ et 199 900€. Raffaele Sorrentino s'est chargé de leur cas et a donc éliminé quatre de ses adversaires en finale. L'Italien a en effet puni le chipleader à l'entame de la finale, le Français Michael Kolkowicz.

Sur la main suivant un combat de blindes avec le Transalpin qu'il avait perdu, le Français, probablement avec le cerveau un peu pollué, a 3-bet shove 17 blindes avec {6-}{2-} après une ouverture au bouton de Sorrentino. En route vers son premier succès majeur, ce dernier a payé avec {a-}{5-} pour éliminer l'ultime tricolore en lice. Au moment où le Français a tout mis avec Air, Bondar et Panyak avaient 11 et 14 blindes...

Le Calabrais prenait alors un ascendant sur la dernière table tandis que Michael Kolkowicz quittait la finale plus riche de 147 120€ après avoir été dans le Top 5 du tournoi depuis son entame. Habitué des deep-runs sur l'European Poker Tour et plutôt redoutable online sous le pseudonyme de 1mDonuts, l'Italien double ses gains en carrière et s'approche désormais de la barre symbolique du million de dollars de gains cumulé en live.

Raffaele Sorrentino

Le tournoi a rassemblé 727 joueurs sous la bannière du PokerStars Championship contre 1098 lors du sacre de Jan Bendik sur l'European Poker Tour Grand Final 2016. 143 joueurs se sont glissés dans l'argent dont le SLovaque, 36e pour sa défense de titre, et 24 Français.

Le tournoi a été marqué par la bulle de Table Finale pour le Team Pro Winamax Davidi Kitai et le deep-run de Bertrand Grospellier, plus gros vainqueur tricolore de l'histoire en MTT, qui réalise son plus gros gain depuis novembre 2013.

Romain Nardin (8e) a pris date pour le futur tandis que Paul-François Tedeschi (18e) attend lui sagement son heure. Mention aussi pour l'ancien Paul Testud, 29e après s'être qualifié en live, et qui inscrit donc une nouvelle ligne à son palmarès, lui qui est recordman français du nombre de places payées...

La prochaine étape du PSC se déroulera en Russie dans deux semaines, sur le site de Sotchi qui avait accueilli les Jeux Olympiques d'Hiver...

Andreas Klatt Eliminated in 2nd Place (€402,786)

Hand #138: Andreas Klatt was first to act and woke up with {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}. The German raised to 450,000. Sorrentino, though, wasn't folding. He found {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds} and three-bet to a sizable 2,025,000.

Klatt, with 5,140,000 behind at the time, shoved for 5,590,000 total. Sorrentino instantly called and seemed to apologize for having such a huge hand.

Klatt could overtake Sorrentino as the chip leader, but he had to find a queen or some other help to do so. It wasn't meant to be, the 11,230,000 pot would never get really exciting.

The {8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop did nothing for either, not even giving Klatt back door outs. The {K-Diamonds} on the turn was a blank and so was the {2-Diamonds} on the river. Both made full houses but Klatt's wasn't worth anything, he had to settle for second place.
