Andras Nemeth is feared and respected in equal measure and it’s easy to see why. The Hungarian superstar has a seemingly supernatural way of reaching final table after final table. Not only did Nemeth navigate his way to two final tables at GGPoker on December 6, but he was also the last player standing at both of them
The first came in the High Roller MILLION$, which was his biggest score of the night and one of the biggest of his career. Nemeth eventually found himself heads-up against China’s “Dabo King” in what was essentially an $89,000 heads-up SNG! There was never any thought about making a deal despite the pay jump so Nemeth reeled in a $282,393 prize when he sent the final opponent to the rail. Second-place weighed in at $193,494.
PLO specialist Ami Barer reached the final table but could only muster an eighth-place finish. Joseph Cheong faired a little better, eventually bowing out in fifth before Justin Park collected the event’s first five-figure prize, $10,266, for a fourth-place finish.
Norway’s “Patches” was the third place finisher, which left Nemeth and Andrii Novak heads-up. Nemeth got his hands on all the chips in play and won the $24,048 top prize, leaving Novak to bank $18,107.
