I said in my earlier post that EPT Prague has not been a big sucess for Team RedKings, that is now a big lie. When the Main Event was over so quick for the team, they all wanted to play some side events, and what a sucess!
In the €2200 euro side event, the day started with that we had two RedKings players in the top 5 by 18 players. Ramzi Jelassi and Jonas “Molle” Molander where the guys who should keep up Team RedKings pride here in Prague, and did they? YES! More than you ever could imagine.
It started out with that both of them had an easy way to the finaltable, no big problems to get into the top 9,
and now they were both going for the win. Player after player left the table, but we wtill had our RedKings Swedes at the table when we were down to FOUR players!
The structure was very fast in the end and when Molle went out as the 4th place finisher he still was happy and ruding for his team colleague Ramzi who were the chipleader. They got out another player pretty fast and we got to a Heads Up between an unknown Norwegian guy and the superstar Ramzi Jelassi. I am now going to tell you about a call that even would make Doyle Brunson and Phil Ivey stupid.
The norweigan guy was very aggresive and raised most of the pots. One pot Ramzi decides to call and the flop comes out 9 - 7 - 2 all in different colors. The norweigan guys puts all his chips in the pot, Ramzi thinks a little and says “call” and flips up A-10 for ACE high! And the norweigan guy just wants to hide his face when he shows J-3 for nothing! No help on the turn or River and we got our RedKing to be a real King! His comment just after winning the tournament is:
“Everything I know, I have learned at RedKings!”
Ramzi went away happy with €129 000 euro, by beating 200 players who paid €2200 to play. Molle was also happy since he got €30 000 for playing this 2 day tournament.
Congratulations to Ramzi Jelassi and Jonas “Molle” Molander! You really are RedKings!
