EPT Sanremo: Two-Way Deal On The Main Event Final Table!

Tags: ept sanremo, final table, Jason Lavallee, Ludovic Lacay, main event.
Posted on 12 October 2012 by "T".

It ended up being Jason Lavallee and Ludovic Lacay who battled it out for the EPT Sanremo main event title yesterday. The heads up battle began after the two players agreed a deal - €644,910 to Lacay and €538,089 to Lavallee, with €100,000 and a Slyde watch left to play for. It was set to be a short match. Sure enought, it only took about 40 minutes until a winner had been crowned...

The final hand occurred just a few minutes after Lacay had taken down a 7 million pot with a full house - kings over tens. The flop came down QDiamond4ClubTClub and Lacay led for 175,000. Lavalee raised to 400,000, and called when Lacay 3-betted to 750,000. The turn card was the JHeart and Lacay fired a 1.4 million bet. Lavallee tanked for a few minutes, then moved his remaining 4,905,000 chips towards the centre of the table. Lacay called almost straight away and turned over QClubTHeart for top two-pair. Lavallee showed 8Club6Club for a flush draw. The river fell TDiamond and Lacay had all the chips in play. For the win he received €744,910 and the luxurious Slyde watch!

Final table results:

1 Ludovic Lacay 744,910*
2 Jason Lavallee 538,089*
3 Artem Litvinov 283,000
4 Angelo Recchia 225,000
5 Jason Tompkins 171,000
6 Micah Raskin 132,000
7 Adrian Piasecki 96,000
8 Ismael Bojang 65,450

After reaching the final HU, making an agreement works like releasing a significant part of the pressure each of the players may have for going for the first prize. This way, they already know a part of what they have won, in money, and they will start playing like if it was a new game, with a different number of starting chips and a fight for a smaller money prize, but that includes a very important thing: the title! So, playing a €100k guaranteed HU must be lots of fun too, both want to win it, and this last only 40 minutes, must have been a disappointment to Lavallee. Still can’t understand what have passed on his mind for going all-in in a flush draw that wasn’t even nuts.
