Maz Misaghian hit the top prize - Western Classic Poker Championship 2014
The Western Poker Championship 2014 concluded with Maz Misaghian winning the first-place prize. For its last stop, this Australian poker tournament of $ 2,200 buy-in brought together a large number of poker stars at Crown Perth, Western Australia. At the end of the two Day 1 flights, the starting field of 100 participants was dropped by almost half. Indeed, they were only 60 poker players to head for Day 2 battle, with Jarod Shawcross stood atop as the days chipleader. And at the end of this highly eventful Day 2 flight, chipleader Jarod Shawcross secured his honorific place, making him the favorite contender of the title.
Armed with a nice stack of 453,000 chips, Shawcross was well placed to grab the title. In addition, he contributed to the elimination of Joel Medalia, the first player who left the table. Note that Daryl Roper closed the event as a bubble boy, leaving the ten remaining players comfortable In The Moneyplaces. Hans Dorn (8th), John Delvecchio (7th), Ash Warner (6th), Lucas Mierzwa (5th) and Krstnoski (4th) suffered the same fate afterwards. Despite his chip lead advantage, Shawcross did struggle to stand still. After a few hours of play, he lost almost half of his stack. And after a tough 3-men battle, Bernard Beh eventually joined the bench of eliminated players, leaving Maz Misaghian and Shawcross the privilege to play in the final clash. Then Misaghian took over the lead, and dominated his opponent. Without much difficulty he edged Shawcross and claimed the title along with the $ 65,000first-place prize.
