Winner’s Reaction

Nemeth’s win is the latest in his hot run on the high roller scene that started with two victories at EPT Prague in March. The European Tour regular made the trip to North Cyprus to compete in the Triton Poker series, and he was pleased with his result.

“It’s so surreal,” Nemeth said in his post-win interview. “To play for the first time and actually win.”

“I want to pinch myself,” he continued.

Nemeth has an opportunity to join the $100,000 event with late registration extended until the first round of Day 2, but he may have his sights set on Wednesday’s Short Deck tournament.

“It’s expensive, and I know a few guys who know how to play, and it seems very complicated,” he said when asked about his plans for the rest of the series.

“Winning this tournament helps. So maybe. We’ll see.”

Final Table Action

The unofficial table got started with seven players, and Stephen Chidwick was the first to go when he made a set of deuces but ran into Elton Tsang's flush.

Six-handed play went on for nearly two hours until Day 1 chip leader Tsang bowed out in sixth place when he couldn’t improve against a charging Nemeth. The elimination of Tsang brought Nemeth near 10 million in chips and the rest of the table trying to outrun the ever-growing blinds.

Shortly after, Koon was next to go in fifth place when his king-queen ran into the pocket queens of Bujtas. On the very next hand it was Ivey who hit the rail when he got his money in with ace-jack but watched Bujtas catch up with a suited seven-five to eliminated him in fourth place.

The eliminations continued in rapid succession as players were in a position to either shove or fold, due to the escalating blinds. Kim was the eliminated in third when he got it in good with pocket sevens, but Nemeth called with pocket fours and made a straight on the river.

Heads-up play was an All-Hungarian matchup, but it didn’t last long. While six-handed play went on for nearly two hours, the final five eliminations occurred over just 35 minutes, and the big moment came when Nemeth made a pair of aces to beat the king-queen of Bujtas.

Congratulations to Andras Nemeth on winning Event #1: $50,000 6-Handed NLH at the Triton Poker Special Edition Series!
