Reixach wins £253,000 at British Poker Open

9 September 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The sixth event of the inaugural British Poker Open was won by Spanish high roller Sergi Reixach, who’s continuing a very strong 2019 campaign by adding another £253,000 to his bankroll. Reixach defeated a field of 22 total entries in this £25,000 event where he outlasted Timothy Adams, Elio Fox, and Michael Zhang at the final table.

From the winner: "It's been a tough final day," Reixach told us moments after his victory. "The bubble lasted four hours or something — it's probably one of the longest bubbles I ever played. "After the bubble burst, I was lucky in a three-way all-in with pocket nines and heads up was just a cooler . . . and I win!"

The final table started with the longest bubble play in recent memory as four hours went by before Ali Imsirovic departed without receiving any compensation. Then, on an epic hand, both Elio Fox and Michael Zhang busted against Sergi Reixach. Zhang moved all in from the button with queen-ten off suit, Fox called from the small blind with ace-seven of diamonds and Reixach shoved from the big blind with nines. Fox called for his tournament life and Reixach’s nines held up.

The heads-up match lasted for one hand as Adams moved all in with king-queen and busted to Reixac’s ace-king suited.
