Last weekend the EPT High Roller Championship was played. Players that made it to the final table were, David Steicke, Andrew Feldman, William Thorson, David Eldar, Florian Langmann, Tony G, Randy Dorfman & Randy Dorfman. But it came to be Vanessa Rousso, Tony G and Randy Dorfman that were the 3 last players in the tournament. They made a deal almost straigh away. The deal was that the winner would get €150,000 extra, and the remaining prize pool would be divided between the three of them.
Tony G was the first player to get knocked out. This left Randy Dorfman and Vanessa Rousso to play heads-up. It came to be a very long heads-up match between them and it seemed that neither of them ever would give up on the battle for the first prize of €570,000.
The final hand was played out like this
Flop comes 398 - Both players check
Turn 5 - Vanessa bets 150,000 and Dorfman calls.
River K - Vannesa decides to move all-in and Dorfman calls straight away.
Randy Dorfman flips over K5 for 2 pairs. Vanessa shows 76 for a straight which gives her the pot and the first prize of €570,000. Randy received €420,000 for second place, same as Tony G, thanks to the deal these 3 players made.
