A group of British players dominated the last round of the WPT World Online Championships at party poker, however, the winning prize ended up in the hands of a Russian player.

A Pair of Aces and Casino Chips In the last week, a fairly recent yet thrilling tournament format, the WPTWOC schedule swap to Mix-Max, saw adjustments in the table dimensions as the tournament continues. The events initially started on eight-handed tables, but later on, switched to six-handed.

The $3,200 buy-in event for the Mix-Max Championship was close to becoming a member of the WPT Champions Club. Guite sat down with the smallest pile on the final table and played superbly with the Russian pro-Andrey Kotelnikov.

Kotelnikov had a brilliant bluff to lead Guite and Guite should find himself unfortunate not to win the top prize of $488,508. The final side saw the two-time flop by Guite, and his lowly six-three by Kotelnikov. Guite earned $366,604.

Guite dismembered Kotelnikov ‘s six-four straight with eight-six in four-five-seven. Both players tested, but the turn was much better with a four-hit, with Kotelnikov on his open-ended trips. Some chips turned around, and others dedicated themselves on the river ace to Guite, bringing the 33 million pot down and leading the ground.

Kotelnikov reversed with ace-king versus ace-jack into cover, but both players took it back in hand to make a couple of Kings, but the two pairs of Guite succeeded.

Guite hit the button with jack-four in the last moment of this tournament, and Kotelnikov came out with six-three. Those two hands were most definitely unplayable on the four-five-jack flop at every other point of the game. Everything that followed was the ongoing bet and call, but the change was even more important. The top prize went to the hands of Kotelnikov.
