Jennifer Shahade Becomes the First-Ever OFC World Championship High Roller Champion!


It's done, the first-ever Open Face Chinese Poker World Championship High Roller event is finished and it's Jennifer Shahade who won the title!

In the final heads up play Jennifer defeated Ilya Bulychev and collected the €100,000 first-place prize along with the Champion trophy.

"It was the biggest buy-in event I ever played and I'm really happy I won," said Shahade in an interview after the game.

The final heads up battle between Shahade and Bulychev started with both players having almost the same amount of chips and after a couple of hands the two have decided to make a deal. The stacks were almost equal, but before the negotiations have started, Jennifer was about to go into fantasy land.

The players have agreed to split the bank almost even and play for the remaining €5K and the trophy. They were to play five more hands including Jennifer's fantasy land and the trophy would go to the one with more chips after the play.

In the end it was Jennifer who scored more points and took home the first place cash prize along with the title.
