The latest winner on the popular 888poker LIVE circuit has been crowned and Italy’s Marco Biavaschi emerged triumphant, lifting the trophy after defeating Daniyar Aubakirov heads-up to come out on top of a field of 1,067 entries and take home the lion’s share of the €800,000 prize pool. For his victory in the 2020 888poker LIVE Madrid €888 Main Event, the Italian scored by far his biggest payday of €150,000 on the live poker circuit thus far in the first major poker tournament held at the Casino Gran Via Madrid right in the city centre after winning his entry in a €100 live satellite. The Italian also receives a package for the 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event.
Aubakirov and Biavaschi took turns to send their opponents to the rail including Ran Shahar, start-of-day chip leader Marco D’Amico, Pablo Paez, and Delgado. The heads-up duel for the title after that lasted just over an hour. Aubakirov quickly pulled further ahead but frustration set in when Biavaschi scooped several bigger pots to turn the tides around. Having escaped from elimination once, Aubakirov got short again and was unable to stop the hot run of Biavaschi.
