fatcod Wins PokerNetwork Online Poker Championships Final!

Posted at 16:26 2009-04-06
The PokerNetwork Online Poker Championships came to a thrilling conclusion last night when PNW’er fatcod (beltor) took down the season ending final on Full Tilt Poker.
After a memorable ten week series, that saw the series venture to many old favourites such as 888 Poker, PokerStars and Poker770 as well as some new friends in Crazy Poker and RedKings Poker, the twenty event winners and top ten season points scorers played off in a 30-man winner takes all finale.
One of the favourites for the title had to be PNW’er deadmoney, playing on Full Tilt as JAKE THE MUSS who qualified for the final in just the second event of the series and ended the preliminary rounds with the most points of any player. He was closely followed in the top five season points scorers by PNW’ers jkcfc, daxmcb, TassieDevil and GET IT RIGHT.
As the players dropped away in the fiercely contested final some familiar names were once again amongst the chip leaders. It came down to an intense three way battle between JAKE THE MUSS, ribbatori and beltor. JAKE THE MUSS held the chip lead but the chips went around and around until beltor gained the ascendency to go heads-up for the title with a 5:1 chip lead over ribbatori.
The final hand saw the chips committed preflop with beltor’s {Ad}{9c} in a dominant position against ribbatori’s {As}{8h}. The board bricked out {5h}{2d}{3h}{6d}{Ah} to give beltor the victory.
He wins a fantastic prize package that will be the envy of all of his neighbours, featuring a PokerNetwork-branded, custom-built poker table, chip set, cards and ShuffleTech machine thanks to our good friends at Pocket Aces Over Kings. We look forward to being invited around for the next home when this bad boy arrives!
