The Malta Poker Festival Spring Grand Event had its denouement last Monday. Three Dutchmen were still in the race for the title. Besides Lakerveld and Van Moorsel, Ho Tien Cheung was also allowed to participate on the final day. The last-mentioned poker player eventually finished in 15th place. Cheung's elimination brought momentum to the event and soon the players were allowed to take their seats at the final table. The eventual winner was in 3rd place in chips at that point, reported https://teenpatti.in.net/.

Gyorgy gets off to a promising start

At the final table, poker player Gyorgy was able to achieve his first success by winning an important hand from Lakerveld and then doubling up a few minutes later thanks to the poker hand Royal Flush. Lakerveld managed to fight his way back in by winning a big flip and sending rival Pawel Zawadowiscz home. Not much later it looked like the end of the story for the Netherlands, but in a lucky way, the pot was split. Van Moorsel did have to take the field and finished in fourth place.

Quick heads-up

The poker player Gyorgy managed to get rid of Da Silva fairly quickly, leaving only two players at the final table. Gyorgy was in a better position at that point and seemed to be heading for the win. After only 20 minutes the heads-up came to an end. Thanks to a better kicker in the all-deciding hand Lakerveld was able to secure the win. Gyorgy had to settle for a prize of 43,000 Euros.
