Result: The Festival Online Texas 8-Max

  • Buy-in: $109
  • Players: 805 players (plus 243 re-entries)
  • Prize Money: $104,800
  • 1st place: laromachikne ($16,223.04)

The $109 8-Max was the biggest event of The Festival Online this weekend. With 1,048 total entries, the guarantee was surpassed and a total of $104,800 was played for. The tournament began Sunday evening and went long into the night until the final eight players were found and the tournament was stopped. Those Final Eight returned on Monday evening to play the final table and for the lion's share of the prize pool. The final table was streamed live on 888poker's Twitch Channel with David Tuchman and Nick Wealthall commenting the action and offering several giveaways during the stream.

After less than two hours only three players remained and laromachikne already had a very sizeable lead with more than two thirds of all the chips. He then took out GediminasDir who shoved with 6-6 into laromachikne's 9-9 and didn't find any help on the flop. This left laromachikne with only one opponent: MIKEPOSTLE who had only 7 big blinds left (to laromachikne's 83 big blinds). The short stack managed to double up once but eventually succumbed to laromachikne when he shoved all-in with Q 6 and was called by A Q . MIKEPOSTLE had serious kicker problems and eventually lost after the board ran out K K 7 -3 -4 .
