🇮🇱 Ran Shahar is the IPS 52nd Edition winner!

Entries 4933

The Final Day of the Italian Poker Sport Main Event ended late at night, after more than 12 hours of play and a heads-up that was more enthralling than first thought, given the enormous advantage in stacks of one of the two survivors.

A victory of prestige and substance, the one we saw on this 5th of February 2024 here at the King's Resort in Rozvadov, which gives €208,000, a ticket for the next WSOPE Main, and the trophy to Ran Shahar, the hero of a terrific comeback over the Italian Biagio Morciano (photo below) of the "Betitaly" team.

Biagio Morciano, runner-up dell'IPS 52° Edizione

At a certain point of the heads-up, Shahar had just 6 blinds against Marciano's 90-plus... That's poker folks! And now let's read what the winner told us after raising the trophy:

"How does it feel? It feels great, I am so happy. Day 2 was very difficult for me, I was always with 6BB, then 2BB, double-up, then 6 again for most of the tournament. I only managed to reach the average in the last few hands before the close.

If I've ever thought about making a comeback? Should I be honest? Yes, because my style of play is very much based on psychology, on reading situations and opponents, while many had a different attitude and played more gambling than was necessary.

I got down to 17 million against 240, but I didn't give up and tried to play post-flop, you can see that from the stream. There was a heads-up situation where I limped from BTN, my opponent raised and instead of going all-in I just called. He had A-Ks and would have won the hand (and the tournament), but by playing post-flop I managed to stay in the game.

How will I celebrate? I'll go home to my wife and daughter, hug them and buy them lots of nice presents. And anyway, to win on a field of 5,000 players is something!"
