After playing almost for 12 hours and battling against a field of 95 entrants, Andras Nemeth emerged a winner in this event in EPT Barcelona called PokerStars European Poker Tour Barcelona €25,000 Single-Day High Roller. The amount that Nemeth won is €605,600. The buy-in for this high roller was €25,000. One thing stands out in this amazing event, and that is the final hand played in the heads-up between Nemeth and Wai Leong Chan.

Nemeth was in a group of poker players who had been sitting and waiting for their chance to shine in the final table. This was mainly because Matthias Eibinger had a chip lead and an opportunity to command the whole game. It was a difficult situation for everyone except Eibinger himself, but he did not manage to retain the chip lead, and the real action started when the momentum shifted to Nemeth.
Both Nemeth and Wai Leong Chan played a beautiful game that would lead to them being in a historical heads-up with a lot of cool cards and great action.

The events in EPT Barcelona are all very popular, and High Roller is one of the most popular among them and the best poker players from all around the world come to that event to either watch or participate in it. Some of the players that joined the action but did not manage to get paid are Stephen Chidwick, Michael Dyer, Sam and Luc Greenwood, Nick Petrangelo, Bryn Kenney, Dan Shak, Ryan Riess, Alex Foxen, Timothy Adams, Mikita Badziakouski, and the member of the Pro Team of PokerStars, Daniel Negreanu.

Poker Became Interesting

There was a lot of interesting poker action when the bubble burst, and we could see a lot of chip turning. The heads-up play was the most interesting of them all, although it lasted for a very short time. Both Andras Nemeth and Wai Leong Chan had a very similar number of chips which was an overture for a quick finale. They traded pots several times, but Nemeth lost control at one point to see Chan gaining more chips only to slowly even it out again.

At one point, Nemeth decided it was time to put pressure on Chan and went all in. Chan did not think twice and called it immediately. What Nemeth did not realize was that Chan had pocket aces against his ace-deuce. The flop gave a four-five-four, and everyone was nervous about the outcome of the game. The turn showed a queen which meant that Chan was still in the lead. But then the most unexpected thing happened – a three of clubs appeared on the river, which meant that Nemeth managed to have A2345. Chan was in complete disbelief, and Nemeth’s supporters started celebrating. This was indeed one of the most amazing final hands in this tournament ever, and Nemeth had a chance to be a part of it.
