WPT National Brussels: Anthony Rodrigues honors Belgium
The poker room of the Grand Casino Brussels Viage has been since last week the host of a national circuit of the World Poker Tour. The Danish Lasse Frost and the Belgian Anthony Rodrigues stood out during this poker event, by winning the Main Event and the High Roller tournament. The Main Event has gathered a field of 376 players, predominantly composed of Belgian and French, but finally, it was a Danish who has won it at the end of five days of competition. Compared with previous editions (450 in February 2013 and 440 in December 2013), the field has slightly moved back, but the atmosphere and competitiveness were always present, making of this 2014 edition of the WPT National Brussels a real success. Lasse Frost pocketed 102,000 for his remarkable performance, while Dimitri Monfroy settled with 72,400 for his 2nd place.
In the High Roller, 40 players have paid the buy-in of 3,000. The local player Anthony Rodrigues, a regular of the WPTn, ranked 2nd in Annecy and 13rd in Marrakesh in 2013, stood out in this poker tournament for 43,540. Concerning other Side Events, the French Erwann Pecheux has won 18,000 for his victory in the Big Stack at 750, on a field of 116 players. Thomas Enevoldsen, another Danish, has stood out in the Wanted Bounty (330 and 73 players), for a gain of 4,292. The Great Max 8-handed with a buy-in of 330 and 56 incomers has been won by the Chinese Xiaoyong Liao. And finally, the Pot-Limit Omaha Turbo Charged at 170 has been won by the English Andrew Lyew, in front of 30 other players.
