Belgian Poker Challenge 2014: Jasper Van Vlasselaer won the NLH Heads-Up
Since last weekend, many are poker fans who have joined the Casino of Namur, Belgium, and poker participated in the edition 2014 of the Belgian Poker Challenge. While the BPC Main Event kicked off on Sunday with a gigantic player-field of 213 entries, the NLH Heads-Up poker tournament has just been wrapped up. The invitational 1,000 buy-in event concluded at 10 p.m with Jasper Van Vlasselaer booking the win. After two hours of man-to-man battle, Vlasselaer ultimately crushed Bert Geens to claim the 10,214 first-place prize. Bert Geens was awarded 5,837 for his second-place finish; hes followed by Jerome Sgorrano (3rd, 3,064), Pieter Aerts (4th, 3,064), Wim Verhaegen (5th, 1,751), Alain Debackere (6th, 1,751), Rico Pauker (7th, 1751) and Anthony Rodrigues (8th, 1,751).
Speaking of the 1,100 buy-in BPC Main event, it attracts 213 players on Day 1A. They enter the game with a starting stack of 50,000 chips; many of them gradually amass a certain amount of chips to over 200,000. By the time the Day 1A arose, Fabrice Henautest cruised on top of the chip count with 240,000 chips, Roland Van Morckhoven came second with 238,000, then Bart Lybaert (208,900) and Karim Mameche (202,800). After his runner-up place in the NLH Heads-Up, Bert Geens took advantage of the late registration to participate in the Main Event. 105 players survived at the end of the day. As Day 1A is over, the Belgian Poker Challenge, the final table of which is scheduled on December 6, will play two other day flights during which poker players who were prematurely eliminated can re-enter the game.
