The editor of Brazilian poker portal Ytaro Segabinazzi became the winner of the final heads-up. In a final hand of tournament, Ytaro went all-in with pocket kings. RakeTheRake CEO Karim Wilkins, who was Segabinazzi’s opponent, called with J-J.
The British didn’t manage to see the jack on the board. Moreover, the king was dealt on the flop, which significantly reduced Karim's chances. Only quads could save him, but such a miracle didn't happen. As a result, Ytaro became the winner of event and earned $7 212 for the victory, as well as ticket to Shooting Stars tournament.
