Day 3 completed
After a grueling three days of poker, a great final table, and the longest, most head-scratching final two we've ever been a part of, Johnson "Johnny" Tan is the champion of the Filipino Poker Tour's Php 5 Million Guaranteed tournament!
Johnny bested a field of 658 players, including top players from the Philippines and other parts of the world. In the end, he managed to make the final table and built his stack until he found himself heads-up against Vic Catalan.
Thus started a final table that we'll all remember for years to come. It sure wasn't pretty, and some of it didn't even look like tournament poker, but in the end, Johnny emerged as the event's big winner.
For the win, he takes Php 2,000,000 and the title of FPT champion. Congratulations, Johnny! Now we can all finally go home!
See you all again next time, and hopefully not at this time of the day again!
At long last, everybody in the tent got what they wanted as the tournament has finally come to an end!
On a flop of , Johnny Tan bet out 1,000,000. Vic Catalan then declared he was all-in and everybody got up as Johnny made the instant call.
Johnny, who had taken a small chip lead after some recent hands, was way ahead with the two-pair and Vic would need a lot of help to stay alive.
That help never came as the turn and river were of no use, sending Vic to the rail, finally, in second place.
This crazy, mostly monotonous marathon is finally over, and we have a champion!
Johnny Tan has been pushing the action a lot over the last few hours but since Vic Catalan took the chip lead about half an hour ago, he's been able to afford making more of the single bet folds that have been the staple of this heads-up match.
The result? Not a lot of action, which is exactly what we've been getting ever since this heads-up match started almost six hours ago.
Vic Catalan has doubled up again against Johnny Tan.
We're so tired that we'll just lay it out for you nice and simple:
Pre-flop all-in, Johnny with and Vic holding
The board ran out and Vic now takes the chip lead with about 8 million in chips.
It's almost nine in the morning and it looks like we'll be sticking around a lot longer after Vic Catalan just doubled up.
On a flop of , Vic went all in and the most of the crowd got on its feet as Johnny Tan made the call.
Johnny was ahead and two cards away from winning the title. But it wasn't meant to be as the turn brought the and the river was the .
Vic is back up to more than four million in chips and it looks like we'll still be here for a lot longer.
