Robert Soogea Wins WPT Amsterdam High Roller

Tags: Robert Soogea, WPT Amsterdam.
Posted on Thursday, May 12, 2016 by "T".

96 entries (+20 compared to last year) entered the 2016 World Poker Tour Amsterdam €6,000 High Roller to create a €531,084 prize pool - which 12 players received a slice of. The biggest name on the 8-handed final table was Juha Helppi. However, the Finnish poker legend eventually finished in 4th place for €49,840 after losing an all in with QClubJSpade against the AHeart7Club of Antanas Kavrakov.

Final table play action stopped just a short while later as the casino was about to close. Play resumed on Wednesday with Fatih Aydin out in front with 2.06 million in chips. Robert Soogea was second with 1.73 million, and in third place was Antanas Kavrakov with 1.01 million.

Kavrakov quickly doubled up through Aydin, who then ended up being eliminated by Soogea. When the heads-up battle kicked off Soogea had about 300k more than Kavrakov. Although both players had plenty of chips to make the battle last for hours it only took half an hour before the final hand was played.

Kavrakov had KClub8Heart and was up against a pair of sixes of Soogea on the board QClubJDiamond9Diamond. The 7Diamond on the turn and the 9Club on the river gave Soogea the pot and the title! This was Robert Soogea's (from Holland) first live victory and the biggest score of his live tournament career.

"There are so many good players here in Amsterdam, and in this tournament. Poker is tough and to be really good you need to practice all the time," Soogea said, "I don't do any of that!"

"I'm a businessman, I play poker only for fun," Soogea added. "I've never read any books, I play only for relaxation so I enjoyed it a lot."

Final table results: 

1 Robert Soogea €150,000
2 Atanas Kavravkov €104,917
3 Fatih Aydin €75,815
4 Juha Helppi €49,840
5 Diego Zeiter €37,367
6 Luuk Gieles €29,883
7 Patricio Rojas Parra €24,894
8 Geoffrey Mooney €19,905

For an amateur player like Robert Soogea who purely loves the game, winning the WPT tournament in which many professionals around the world were participating must have been one of the most exhilarating experiences in his life.

Congratulations, Robert!

Many congratulations to Robert Soogea on winning this High Roller Title and the 150,000 first prize. Great to see Juha Helppi still playing to a very high level after so many years

it can be really hard to play against other women or new players and of course morons.

with poker you always try to find mistakes that other people make, but sometimes they win on mistake because they don't understand the odds.

also playing a certain way can annoy people and they will make mistakes when they get frustrated.

there are so many factors, but a good player, I think, WILL ALWAYS LEARN, HIS WHOLE LIFE!
there are just so many aspects in poker, it's the trick to learn a lot of of tricks and recognize patterns etc etc. Don't stop learning!
