Event #10 of the World Cup of Cards, the $100 + $10 Crazy Pineapple 8-Max Re-entry, featured a $6,000 prize pool guarantee and unlimited re-entries during the late registration period. There were a total of 62 entries, including 12 re-entries, which pushed the prize pool to just meet the guarantee and award a total of $6,014 to the top eight players.
The tournament moved at a rapid pace with an array of different chip leaders as the night progressed. Once the late registration period closed, there were a series of eliminations that narrowed the field to the final table in an instant.
Jordano Mascaro finished in third place for $925, leaving Normand Plessis Belair and Didier Delvil heads-up for the top spot. The final hand saw Plessis Belair shove all in pre-flop which Delvil called.
While both players could make a pair of sevens, it was Delvil’s ace that sealed the deal. Plessis Belair finished second to collect $1,255 and Delvil was crowned champion for $1,709. Congratulations!
