Diego Ventura wrote himself into partypoker’s history books on November 25 when he came out on top of a stacked final table to become the 2020 Caribbean Poker Party Main Event champion.
Ventura shone brightly throughout this $5,300 buy-in event, topping the chip counts at the conclusion of each day. Now he has $879,894 more than a few days ago plus the title of CPP Online Main Event champion.
Ventura trailed Ramage by 343,514,572 to 690,750,760 chips going into the one-on-one battle. They grappled with each other for 45-minutes with neither managing to get a foothold in the match and pull ahead. Something had to give and it certainly did.
Ramage opened with pocket queens and Ventura called with ten-eight. Ventura flopped top two pair and check-raised Ramage’s continuation bet only for Ramage to put in a re-raise of his own. Ventura called and a deuce landed on the turn, which was a complete brick and Ventura check-called another Ramage bet.
A seven on the river received the same treatment, Ventura check-calling Ramage’s jam. The Peruvian’s two pair was good, meaning Ramage had to make do with the $631,636 runner-up prize while Ventura scooped a huge $879,894 score.
