The previous Chipleader was not as happy to bust his 900k stack in the 220 € Side Event three-handed play with 1.5 Mio Chips in play, but it helped 770 Pro Anthony Rodrigues (pictured above) to have a shot at the win and reach Heads-Up. Here, all Chips went in the middle preflop with A♥ 5♦ and his Swiss opponent had K♠ 5♠, the rest is better told in pictures:

The end of Day 1B and End of Day 2 Chipleader Christiaan Vanzieleghem has won the Main Event of the European Deepstack Poker Championships here in Dublin and takes home 53,500 € after a three-handed deal. He also played Day 1A as well but had to re-enter because his Heads-Up opponent Julien Duveau knocked him out on the first starting day, at that time both surely didn’t expect to see that outcome happen.
Below you can find the official result of the Final Table and we would like to thank you for your attention.
|1||Christiaan Vanzieleghem||BEL||53,500 €|
|2||Julien Deveau||FRA||40,000 €|
|3||Benjamin Dadon||FRA||50,000 €|
|4||Youry De Winter||BEL||25,150 €|
|5||Anthony Guibert||FRA||17,500 €|
|6||Daniel Carter||UK||12,200 €|
|7||Junior Walden||SWE||8,700 €|
|8||Thomas Boivin||BEL||6,150 €|
|9||Andrew Wayman||UK||4,350 €|
Christiaan Vanzieleghem extended his lead to roughly 2-1 and min-raised to 400k, which was called by Julien Deveau. On the Flop A♠ 9♦ 7♠ the French check-called the 600k cbet of his opponent and both saw the 8♥ on the Turn.
The Belgian overpushed all-in and Deveau made the call, it was no good news for him:
Deveau: A♦ 2♥
Vanzieleghem: A♥ 7♣
The French was not drawing dead yet, a Nine or Eight would chop the pot but the Q♣ brought the final decision for the Main Event of the European Deepstack Poker Championships at the Ballsbridge Inn @ Dublin. Julien Deveau takes home 40,000€ for his second place according to the three-handed deal and we will be back shortly with the final article and winner picture.
You may wonder why the title does say 50,000€, but once they reached three-handed play a deal was made the Benjamin Dadon as well as second in Chips, Christiaan Vanzieleghem, received 50,000€ and Julien Duveau had 40,000€ in the bags. 3,000€ were left over for the winner and one runner runner bad beat for Dadon set him back in Chips.
Preflop Julien Duveau shoved for more than 4 Mio in Chips with A♦ 4♣, Dadon snap called with J♣ J♦ and the Flop 3♠ 7♦ J♠ looked like inevitable elimination but Turn 5♠ and River 6♣ completed the backdoor straight instead!
At Blinds 100,000-200,000 / Ante 20,000 he minraised to 400,000 and called the three-bet to 1.2 Mio by Christiaan Vanzieleghem to see a J♠ 10♠ 7♥ Flop. The Frechman open pushed for 4 Mio and was called by his Belgian opponent with A♥ 9♠ for a gutshot. Dadon was ahead with 10♥ 8♠ for middle Pair, but the 8♣ on the Turn completed the straight. Dadon still had outs for the win with 2pr and a 9 would have chopped the pot, but the 7♦ was a blank.
About 15 minutes ago Christiaan Vanzieleghem doubled up with 8♥ 5♥ when he turned two pair against Benjamin Dadon’s Jacks, but the French would lose two premium pocket pairs in a row. Preflop, all Chips of Youry De Winter went in the middle and the French snap called with K♦ K♣. His Belgian opponent flipped over A♣ 10♣ and hit the Ten on a 7♠ 2♣ 10♥ Flop.
The 8♣ on the Turn brought an additional flush draw, but the J♥ on the River sent him to the rail in 4th place for 25,150€. The remaining three players are now in a short break, are they maybe already discussing a potential deal?
It was a battle of the French players and Julien Duveau opened the hand with a min-raise to 200k from the Button before the shortest stack on the table, Anthony Guibert, went all in for 700k. Duveau called and we were off for a race:
Duveau: A♠ 8♥
Guibert: K♦ J♦
The Flop 6♣ A♦ Q♦ gave a ton of outs to Guibert who was at risk of elimination and the 10♦ would have surely been the butter on the cake, but the dealer denied the double-up as the Board ran out with two Blanks:
Anthony Guibert has been eliminated in 5th place for 17,500€ and Duveau evens out the battle France versus Belgium in the final four.
The chip counts of the last four are as follows:
Benjamin Dadon – 14,235,000
Youry De Winter – 5,205,000
Christian Vanzieleghem – 1,450,000
Julien Duveau – 8,570,000
Well, that was certainly a rush in the last two hands and first Daniel Carter doubled up with A♣ J♠ versus K♦ 10♦ of Christiaan Vanzieleghem when the Board ran out 6♥ 3♦ J♦ 10♠ 3♥. Soon after he shoved his new 2.3 Mio stack into a raise of Youry De Winter and the Belgian made the call:
De Winter: K♠ 10♣
Carter: A♦ J♣
The Flop Q♣ 9♥ J♥ was a shocker one for the Brit and he could not hit running cards to improve his hand when the dealer completed the hand with the 10♥ on the Turn and the Q♥ on the River. Daniel Carter is out in 6th place and gets 12,200€, but he as well as his buddy John Eames were surely not amused about the very loose call of the Belgian.
Well there is some confusion of Junior Walden but he has confirmed again that it’s an e and not an i as we previously thought. It is also confirmed that he just busted in a sick spot against Chipleader Benjamin Dadon. Preflop, Benjamin Dadon raised to 210k and Junior reraised to 520k, the French Chipleader called and both saw the Flop 2♦ Q♠ 10♠.
The 316k cbet is check-raised to 860k and the Swede snap calls to see the 4♦ on the Turn. This time, Dadon fires 1.5 Mio and gets quickly called. When the 4♣ hit the River, Dadon shoved all-in and was snap called by Walden to create a massive pot of more than 11 Mio in Chips! Benjamin Dadon flips over 10♦ 10♥ for a flopped Set and a rivered Full House, Walden was ahead preflop with K♣ K♥ but has been eliminated in 7th place for 8,700 €.
