Jeffreys Wins Tony G Celebrity Shootout Bounty Event at PokerNews Cup

Jeffreys Wins Tony G Celebrity Shootout Bounty Event at PokerNews Cup
One of the many preliminary events at the Crown Casino during the PokerNews Cup Australia series is the Tony G Celebrity Shootout Bounty Event, and it just happened to also be one of the most popular. The opportunity to knock out some of the 17 players for sizable bounties of $500, along with competing for the prize pool itself, made the $550 buy-in event worth participation. There were 169 players who registered for the tournament, including names such as Tony Hachem, Sam Khouiss, Emad Tahtouh, and Tony G. The first day of action progressed right through the money bubble, saw Ben Delaney become the first player to cash in 16th place, and pushed forward toward the final table. Along the way, Tony G was eliminated in 11th place, and Alfred Grech burst the final table bubble by finishing in ninth place. That provided the final table set up as follows for the next day of play: Bruce Nguyen 164,700 Nick Haidaris 156,000 Angelo Prifti 125,000 William Skountzos 110,000 Andrew Jeffreys 87,700 Riku Koivurinne 77,700 George Dionisopoulous 53,600 Ben Savage 48,700 Day 2 started with Riku Koivurinne taking the ultimate all-in chance with ac qs, and Nguyen was the caller holding pocket sixes. That pocket pair only got better when the board came 2d 3d ts tc 6s, and Koivurinne was eliminated in eighth place with $2,280. George Dionisopoulos was ready to take some risks, the first of which paid off with a double-up through Nguyen. But on the second attempt, he pushed with pocket queens but met up with the pocket kings of Savage. The board of ac 9d 2s 3s 5h was empty, and Dionisopoulos was gone in seventh place with $3,040. Though Bruce Nguyen started off the day on a tear, a Prifti double-up left him with only 25K. He doubled once and tried it a second time with ad 8d, which prompted a call from Jeffreys with qc jc. The board produced 5c 6c 9h 2c 4c, and the flush eliminated Nguyen in sixth place with $3,800. Nick Haidaris was the next to push all-in, though it didn’t happen until after a 4s kh as. Haidaris then pushed for 62K with ks 3c, but Prifti called with ah 3d. The qh on the turn and 3s on the river sent Haidaris packing in fifth place with $4,940. Ben Savage then moved all-in preflop with kc 4h, and Jeffreys called with qh jd. The board came 7d 5d jh 9c ts, and Savage was gone in fourth place with $6,460. Next up was Angelo Prifti, though the all-in move didn’t come until after the ad 6h 8d flop. Jeffreys called again, this time with ah jh, and Prifti showed his th 8c for only middle pair. The qs turn and jd river gave the pot to Jeffreys and eliminated Prifti in third place with $9,880. Heads-up play then began as follows: William Skountzos 455,000 Andrew Jeffreys 400,000 Jeffreys quickly took the lead in the match, and the last hand wasn’t far off. Skountzos ended up moving all-in blind, and Jeffreys called blind. Skountzos happened to have kc th, and Jeffreys could only show qh 6h. But the board brought 4s jc 3d 6s jh to give Jeffreys the advantage and leave William Skoutzos with $14,440 and second place. Andrew Jeffreys won the tournament and the $20,520 in prize money.
