JP Poker Mini WSOP Results; Chris O'Connor Wins Main Event

Chris O'Connor

The JP Poker Mini WSOP kicked off on Oct. 28 and ran through to Nov. 4, during which time over €82,000 was played for over the course of nine events.

The highlight of the festival was the €350 Main Event that attracted a crowd of 160 runners who were eventually outlasted by Chris O’Connor. The final hand of the Main Event saw O’Connor (pictured) open to 180,000 and Liam O’Donoghue three-bet all-in for 1,335,000 in total. O’Connor eventually made the call and showed {A-Hearts}{5-Hearts} to discover he was behind o his opponent’s {A-Spades}{9-Clubs}. That was until the flop cam down {5-Spades}{10-Spades}{8-Spades}, O’Connor’s pair of five nudging in front, but O’Donoghue still had plenty of outs to an ace, nine or spade. Amazingly, none of them appeared as the turn and river were the {k-Diamonds} and {6-Diamonds} respectively to bust out O’Donoghue and crown O’Connor the champion.

Here are the results of the entire festival, a little later than anticipated, but here nonetheless.
