All good things come to an end and unfortunately, that time is now. It’s been an absolute pleasure bringing The MonsterJam Poker Tour back to Boardwalk for season 2. We have managed to fill the poker room with an amazing atmosphere and energy with the help of all the staff at the casino, the players and the engagement we’ve seen online. To wrap things up here is a recap of all the winners:
Event 1 The Monster Freeroll winner: LAUREN PHIA
Event 2 Millions Accumulated winner: TBD
Event 3 The Grand Slam winner: RUDOLF FOURIE
Event 4 The 6 Max winner: MAURICE DE LA MARE
Event 5 The MonsterJam Main Event winner: NIC IOANNOU
Event 6 The Monster Stack Turbo winner: CLIVE KIKIA
Event 7 The Semi-Freeze winner: KEVIN KALIL
Congratulations to all the winners and everyone who cashed. We are looking forward to getting back here next season. Until then we hope to see you all at our next event in Sibaya, KZN.
After a few hands of heads up with Lauren Scott, Kevin Kalil picked up A♠️6♠️ and called an all-in from Scott who had J♦️9♦️. The board ran clean for Kalil who takes down the trophy and first place cash to go with it. We’re grateful Kevin Kalil spent his birthday with the MonsterJam team and took home a trophy as the icing on the cake. Congratulations Kalil and Happy Birthday!
With the last event of the Boardwalk Season 2 we are down to our final 3 tables. This event has seen 62 entries with 54 add-ons which has amounted to a prize pool of R302,760.00 with 7 players cashing.
Top 3 players Nic Ioannou, Muaaz Gani and Daniel Lamberti make an ICM deal after a few hands of 3 handed play seeing Nic Ioannou taking down the trophy, Muaaz Gani coming 2nd and Daniel Lamberti coming 3rd. After 3 days of grinding it out on the poker tables, Ioannou outlasted and outplayed a field of 138 entries to come out on top of The MONSTERJAM MAIN EVENT. We saw some really exciting play over the course of The Main Event and would like to thank everyone who got involved both on and off the tables. See you all in Sibaya for another amazing Main. Congratulations Nic Ioannou!

Rosenthal – A♣K♠
Okes is in bad shape as he is dominated here. The flop is [4♠-A♥-3♣] giving both players top pair. The turn is the [A♠] and Okes needs to hit a Queen to double or either a three or four to chop. The [5♠] bricks for Okes eliminating him in 9th for R36,018.00. Well played JP!
