Pablo Rojas takes down Estrellas Poker Tour Ibiza
After five intense days of poker action, Estrellas Ibiza has finished with Spanish player Pablo Rojas as the winner of the event. Rojas won the ESPT Ibiza Main Event cashing for €40,800 after making a three-way deal with runner-up Amaury Legait (France) with €50,000 and third-placed Daniel Ericson (Sweden) with €40,000.
The third main event of the third season of the Estrellas Poker Tour was held at the Casino Ibiza, and ran from May 16 to 20. A total of 269 players from 29 different countries participated in this leg, generating a total prize pool of €258,240.
The final table started off with eight players. The first to exit was Spanish player Dragan Kostic, who secured a prize of €7,750, followed an hour later by Jaume Niell Alomar in seventh for €9,800. An hour after the first break of the day, Swedish player Johan Ray was sent home in sixth with a prize of €12,390 for his efforts.
Twenty minutes before the end of level 25, French player Amaury Legait stepped up the pace and brought the game closer to its conclusion by eliminating two players in quick succession. Spanish player Daniel Coloma Serna in fifth (€15.100 and Lithuanian Saulius Tuluosa in foutth (€18,000) were his victims.
Shortly after, the three finalists made a deal, Legait securing the largest share of €50,000 with Ericson and Rojas taking €40,000 and €36,000 respectively. They agreed to leave €4,800 to play for and resumed play. Minutes after the restart, Swedish player Ericson became another victim of the Frenchman.
After less than five hours of play we were already heads up, and two hours later, Pablo Rojas overcame his French adversary to become the Estrellas Poker Tour Season 3 Ibiza Champion.
