Charan came into heads up play against Piotr Wielopolski with a pretty sizable chip advantage, and it only took a few hands to put an end to the tournament.
Piotr got a monster hand and was happy to go all-in. Charan called instantly with his weak ace.
The four on the flop window did not seem too dangerous to Piotr but he was disappointed to see anything hit for Charan anyway.
Piotr’s gut instincts were spot on, because the on the turn reduced Piotr’s chances of winning to nothing but the two remaining kings in the deck. The on the river gave Charan a boat and put an end to the final event of the October Power Weekend.
It was a long and arduous road for Charan tonight. He was struggling all evening and was down to very few chips when the tournament reduced to 3 tables. He was also the shortest stack at the onset of the final table, with only 3% of the total chip count and barely 10% of chip leader Douglas James’s stack. His rise to fame started mid-way through the final table. He had gathered enough chips to warrant a 2nd place cash in the 4-way ICM chop. He never seemed to look back after that, and went on to scoop it all in the end.
Congratulations to all the winners!
