Isabelle Mercier Becomes the First-Ever Progressive Pineapple World Champion


After 12 hours of play, we finally have our brand new and the first one in history, Open Face Chinese Poker Progressive Pineapple world champion, Isabelle Mercier. In the heads-up battle she defeated Germany’s Frank Gohletr and will now carry the honor of calling herself the ultimate Progressive Pineapple World champion. At least until next December.

Mercier will not only have the eternal recognition, but will also boast a cash prize of just over €10,000, while the runner-up finisher Gohletr will take home €6,304.

But that was just the beginning, as the OFC World Championship continues today at 15:00 featuring some of the best-known names in poker as well as the live stream commented by David Vanderheyden.

Be sure you don’t miss out on the broadcast as David will not only try to talk to some of the most prominent Open Face Chinese players, but will also announce the password for tonight’s €500 guaranteed freeroll running on our online poker platform.
