Philip Hollederer

The popular World Poker Tour Prime series journeyed to the Dutch capital of Amsterdam for a week of poker action. Over the weekend, the festival’s $1,100 Main Event played out at the Holland Casino, which saw Philip Hollederer walk away as the champion.

Hollederer topped the 1,000-entry field to capture the €161,552 first-place prize as well as the winner’s €10,400 package to play in the season-ending WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas.

The WPT Prime Amsterdam Main Event generated a €1,000,000 prize pool, resulting in the top 125 players securing the €1,782 min-cash. Samuel Ju (43rd), Tobias Peters (89th) and Antoine Vranken (91st) were just some of the notable names to finish in the money.

Hollederer Holds Out to Win WPT Prime Amsterdam Main Event

Just ten players remained going into the final day of the Main Event, with Hollederer having the chip lead, and it didn’t take too long for the tournament to reach its final table. Bart Driessen exited in tenth place after his pocket aces were flushed away by the suited ace-nine of Stephan van den Berg.

On the sixth hand of the final table, Vache Zakaryan headed to the payout desk as his king-nine could not leapfrog Floris ten Cate’s king-queen following an all-in preflop encounter. Cate then secured another knockout after he flopped the nut-flush against Clyde Tjauw Foe. The eliminated Foe also had a flush but was drawing dead after all the chips went in on the turn.

Short stack Willem Roebroek then fell in seventh place after his ten-five was beaten by the king-eight held by Joey Sint.

Cate secured his hattrick of final table scalps after ousting Van Den Berg. Cate opened to 500,000 and called when Van Den Berg moved all in for 750,000. Cate had ace-four and held out to secure the elimination as Van Den Berg could not connect on the runout with his suited seven-five.

Hollederer then bagged his first FT casualty after his ace-ten won a flip against Carlos Da Costa Dias, who had pocket eights. Hollederer retook the chip lead from Ten Cate after getting two streets of value with his ace-nine. Ten Cate check-called bets of 900,000 and 1,100,000 on a nine-high board until both players checked the {j-Clubs} river through to showdown.

Champagne sipping Joey Sint was the next player sent to the rail after he ran his pocket tens into the pocket kings held by Eli Fisz. Fisz then ejected Ten Cate from the Main Event as the former’s pair of sixes remained best against his opponent’s king-ten.

The final two players exchanged the chip lead several times in the early stages of heads-up play, but Hollederer secured the victory after he rivered a flush with his suited nine-four. On the {q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} board, Hollederer moved all in as the bigger stack and was called by Fisz, who had ace-eight for a pair. The {3-Hearts} completed the runout and confirmed Hollederer’s Main Event coronation.
