Day 1 Completed
Dave Jeanneau-Cyr just won his third tournament at the World Cup of Cards at Playground Poker Club. His third win came in Event #19: $110 No-Limit Hold em Deepstack Turbo. He bested a field of 113 players to win his third WCC title.
The tournament was set to pay 12 players, but the players made a deal to pay the bubble. Here is the payout breakdown.
The final table we fairly quick, but slower than you might imagine and the tournament ended when the average stack was less than five big blinds.
Reginald Vigneau finished ninth, busting to Yves Plante after getting all in preflop with king-high versus ace-high. Then David Martinez was at risk in a three-way pot. Yves Plante and Dominic Jipos checked down the board and Jipos turned over a straight to win the pot, beating the queen-high of Martinez.
Melvin Gibson felt his elimination was coming when he shoved all in with ace-queen and got called by Jeanneau-Cyr with ace-jack. The jack came on the flop and Gibson's premonition was confirmed as he was eliminated in seventh place.
Jipos then busted Yves Plante and Goran Brestovac in quick succession. Both times Jipos has ace-high and both times he hit an ace to win the hand and eliminated Plante in sixth and Brestovac in fifth.
The players played four-handed for quite a while considering the fast-paced structure of the tournament. Finally, Tyler Lee sent Jipos home when he won a race with ace-king, beating the pocket nines of Jipos.
Three-handed, Erim Gulec doubled up Jeanneau-Cyr and was left with less than a big blind. He got all in two times with ace-high and won both of them. He eventually worked his stack up enough to eliminate Tyler Lee in second place. Lee had four-high against the jack-high of Gulec and Gulec won the pot, leaving him heads up with Jeanneau-Cyr.
The heads up portion of the tournament didn't last too long, on the final hand, Jeanneau-Cyr won the tournament when both players flopped an ace, but Jeanneau-Cyr held the better kicker.
Jeaneau-Cyr took home his third WCC trophy in what he said was only the seventh event he played in during the series. Because he hasn't played many of the events, he is pretty low on the tournament leaderboard, but he is definitely the most efficient player of the series so far. He was the first, and only, player to win twice and now he has won for a third time. His first win was in the Dealer's Choice Tournament for $2,038 earlier in the series, and then he won the Crazy Pineapple tournament for $2,162.
There is still more than a week to go for Jeanneau-Cyr to possibly claim a fourth trophy and perhaps work his way up the leaderboard.
