Deividas Daubaris Wins Record Setting Winamax Open Bratislava (€120,000)

Deividas Daubaris Wins Record Setting Winamax Open Bratislava (€120,000)

Lithuania's Deividas Daubaris defeated France's Adrien Guyon heads-up in the 2022 Winamax Open Bratislava €500 Main Event to win a cool €120,000 and the coveted trophy.

This was easily the biggest haul for Daubaris, who more than doubled his winnings with the six-figure win. His biggest win came in the summer when he took third place behind poker legends Alex Foxen and Sergi Reixach in the Aria High Roller Summer Series Event #8: $10,000 No Limit Hold'em for $36,800.

The fun six-max festival also set two big records thanks to the 2,221 entries generating a €977,240 prize pool. This was the largest in Winamax Open history with the previously record-holding tournament taking place also this year when the 2022 Winamax Open Spain attracted 2,182 entries for a €960,080 prize pool. Meanwhile, the €977,240 prize pool is also the largest in Slovakian poker history. Although, it is possible that the Slovakian record will be short-lived with the €500,000 guaranteed The Festival Series Bratislava €550 Main Event just around the corner.

Final Day Action

The final day began with just 14 hopefuls remaining. France's Clement Bonnatt began with the chip lead with eventual winner Daubaris in ninth place. While fortunes were high for Daubiris, the opposite was the case for Bonnatt who witnessed his stack fall apart before eventually hitting the rail in 12th place when his ace-four suited didn't get there against Guyon's nines.

Stefan Baczynskyj made some waves just before the official final table began when his aces were good to double against the queens held by Igor Mataruga. Lionel Muggeo was also in the cooler of a hand with eights and hit the rail in eighth place after Baczynskyj was able to lay claim to his chips.

Baczynskyj began the seven-player unofficial final table with a slim lead over Guyon and Daubaris was sitting comfortably in fourth place with nearly 30 big blinds. However, fortunes changed by the time Romain Semler with ace-ten suited eliminated Nicolas Tytgat in seventh place with Daubiris starting the official table in last place of the final six remaining contenders.

That all quickly changed with Daubaris nearly taking the chip lead when his aces were good against Baczynskyj's king-ten to double his stack. Shortly after, Semler snagged the chip lead when his jacks won a flip to eliminate Igor Mataruga with ace-queen.

Guyon then went on a tear. First, he ousted Nacho Barbero to take the chip lead when his big slick remained strong against jack-ten. He then extended his lead further and had nearly half the chips in play to start three-handed action after he eliminated Baczynskyj with nines against ace-deuce suited.

The chip lead bounced between all three players before Guyon came back to hold more than half the chips in play. Daubaris was nearly able to even the stacks up to commence the heads-up action after his ace-nine suited won a flip against fives to eliminate Semler on the podium in third place.

Guyon extended his lead to a 4:1 chip advantage before Daubaris came storming back to not only take the lead but also eventually hold a 4:1 chip advantage himself before the final hand took place.

The final hand began with Guyon jamming for more than six big blinds with ace-nine suited. Daubaris called with king-six and he quickly pulled far ahead after flopping two pair. Guyon got no love from the rest of the board and settled for the healthy runner-up prize of €88,000.

Meanwhile, a huge congrats to Deividas Daubaris for winning the dual record-breaking 2022 Winamax Poker Open €500 Main Event for €120,000.
