After a very busy and fast-paced main table, we have our winner Melvin Chetty!
Cliff Safi shoved a all in vs Nadim Makki, Nadim bested Cliff with double Jacks.
Ewald Stieger then tried to take on Nadim, but yet again Nadim bested another opponent!
After all these big plays Nadim was the chip leader by quite a distance and it took Melvin 1 all in shove and 1 call to finally best Nadim.
The first all in shove by Melvin, he won with double 8’s.
The last nail in the coffin was when Melvin managed to land a flush off the flop, it didn’t matter that Nadim managed to get 2 doubles on the turn and the river.
A huge congratulations to all players!
