blur5f6 wins UBOC event Sunday

Sunday's $250,000 guaranteed No-Limit Hold'em event of the UltimateBet Online Championship (UBOC) brought out 1,341 players to battle at the felt. Coming out on top was blur5f6 to win $56,724.30 for his efforts.

The tournament lasted for more than eight hours with several examples of bad beats which led John Vorhaus to call it a "night of a thousand suckouts" during his commentary on the game.

When it came down to heads up between blur5f6 and adanthar1, both had enough of a chip stack to make bold raises and re-raises and keep the action interesting.

Andthar1, who'd already had a couple suckouts to make it to heads-up, didn't quite have enough luck to win it all. On the final hand, his A-7 didn't hold up to blur5f6's K-8 when Q-K-10 came on the flop. There was no jack or ace to save him, and he left with $33,632.28
