Chanracy Khun KOs Ben Pollak for WPT Barcelona Title
Canadian student Chanracy Khun out-dueled cash-game pro Benjamin Pollak for the WPT Barcelona title tonight to take home $258,448 and a prestigious seat in the WPT Championship this May.
Khun, who had about $100k in live earnings prior, carried over his chip lead and his momentum from Day 3 to knock out each of his opponents at the final table.
The win is by far Khun's biggest, although he did narrowly miss a $1m seat in a Big One for One Drop satellite at the WSOP in Vegas last year.
Pollak, a veteran pro from France who won his buy-in from the cash games at Casino Barcelona before the event, couldn't overcome a big chip disadvantage heads-up and took home $162,822 for his runner-up finish.
The official final six and payouts, courtesy of WPT.com:
- 1. Chanracy Khun $258,448
- 2. Benjamin Pollak $162,822
- 3. Antonio Alfaia $107,256
- 4. Tahiri Hassani Najib $80,119
- 5. Bruno Garcia Cotelo $59,443
- 6. Sergio Fernandez $47,813
Notable names to go deep but miss the final table were Paul Testud (8th - $31,014), Erich Kollmann (11th - $17,455), Manuel Bevand (17th - $12,406), reigning WPT Barcelona champ Lukas Berglund (19th - $10,726), Kevin Vandersmissen (22nd - $9,692) and Bryn Kenney (26th - $8,658).
