Footballer Regilio Vrede Bubbles Grand Event
Level 18: 6,000/12,000 (12,000)
Former footballer Regilio Vrede just bubbled the Grand Event on a cooler. Vrede jammed for 90,000 into a pot of around the same with the 4♥Q♥J♣ on the flop and was called by Michal Gavurnik.
The action paused for about three minutes while hands at other tables played out. After that, a big crowd surround the table and the cards were turned over.
Regilio Vrede: A♥Q♣
Michal Gavurnik: K♠10♠
Vrede was ahead but Gavurnik had many outs to a better pair or to complete an open-ended straight draw. The 10♣ added more possible outs for Gavurnik with one card to come.
The tournament arena erupted with applause after the 9♠ river completed the board to complete a straight for Gavurnik.
Unlucky for Vrede but he will have a chance to make up for it with the last nine players to hit the rail before the bubble flipping for a Winamax Marrakech package valued at approximately €2,500.

Michal Gavurnik – 1 million
