🇨🇭 Nabil El Hage is the Sharkbay ME winner!

Entries 1.199



The main event of the Sharkbay tournament at the GCPoker Room in Bendern, Liechtenstein, concluded with a thrilling victory for Swiss player Nabil El Hage after an intense battle.


The outcome was highly unpredictable, especially since, at the 7-player phase, the remaining players attempted to make a deal, which Nabil vetoed. Shortly after, he found himself as the shortest stack with just 3.5BB. However, in poker, anything can happen as long as there’s a chip in play.


Following a remarkable comeback, Nabil El Hage secured the trophy and the top prize after agreeing to a 3-player deal with Symeon Alexandridis and "Mexxess". Now, let's recap the action of the final table from the beginning.

Sharkbay Final Table is set!



Following the dramatic conclusion of the previous round, the eight finalists are now taking their seats at the final table of the Sharkbay Main Event. With more than just the prestigious trophy, players are vying for the top prize of 63,000 Swiss Francs. Below is the chip count.


"Noizz" is the 8th-place finisher



The Sharkbay Main Event's final table witnessed its first elimination shortly after play began, with blinds at 150K/300K. The hand unfolded pre-flop, featuring a crucial showdown between "Noizz," the shortest stack, and Yolcu Fedai.


Fedai, playing from the Hi-Jack, opened with K♣️ Q♣️. "Noizz," from the BTN, went all-in with 10♠️ 10♥️, holding a stack of about 3.5 million. After the blinds folded, Fedai decided to call with his stack of 5 million. The board came down 3♥️ A♥️ Q♠️ 9♥️ 3♠️, delivering a queen on the flop to Fedai, which was enough to secure the hand and eliminate "Noizz."


"Noizz" exits the tournament in 8th place, earning 6,000 CHF. The remaining seven players continue, with "Mexxess" still leading the pack as the action progresses. This elimination pushes Yolcu Fedai among the top chip holders, intensifying the competition at the final table.



After a failed attempt to make a deal, the action continued until 3:30, and all players agreed to return this afternoon at 5 p.m. with blinds 200K/400K, ante 400K. Here are the updated chip counts of the Sharkbay Main Event:

Fedai Yolcu out in 7th place

Blinds 300K/600K, ante 600K



Before discussing the elimination, we must mention Nabil El Hage's performance at the final table, which involved blinds of 250K/500K, an ante of 500K, and an average stack of 8.5 M.


The shortest stack went all-in in the very first hand with 8♦️ 5♦️ from the BTN, finding Alin Cosmin Farcas's call from the BB with K♣️ 7♣️. The board ran J-J-9-9-A, and it's a split pot.


A few hands later, Alexandridis opened from UTG, El Hage went all-in for 2.125.000, Alin Cosmin Farcas called from BB e, and Symeon did so. On 5♥️ A♥️ Q♦️ after Farcas' check, Symeon bet 2M and Farcas folded.


At the showdown, Symeon shoved K♠️ 4♠️ on a pure ICM bluff, while El Hage flipped A♠️ K. Turn 7♠️, River K♣️, and it's a triple-up for the shorter stack.


Not long after, Fedai Yolcu went all-in with Pocket Fours, finding El Hage re-shove with Queens. The board ran 2♥️ 7♠️ 5♦️ A♥️ 6♠️, and El Hage is back in business with over 13 million chips!


Fedai Yolcu is the 7th place finisher and cashed CHF 8,600.


Stonewall Jackson busted in 6th

Blinds 300K/600K, ante 600K



Nabil El Hage keeps hammering and, after a good pot won against Farcas, who folded at the river, in the following hand called from the BTN with K♦️T♣️ Stonewall Jackson's shove with K♣️ 5♣️ for about five bigs.


The board 7♦️ A ♠️ Q♦️ 9♥️ 10♦️ sent Jackson out for CHF 12,300 while El Hage is now ahead of the count!


Alin Cosmin Farcas ended up 5th

Blinds 300K/600K, ante 600K



The tournament goes fast, and it's time for a new elimination: Goran Todorovic open-shoved for over 6M, Farcas has only 3M left and goes all-in as well from the SB, while Alexandridis tank-folded from BB. At the showdown, Todorovic showed Pocket Jacks against Farcas' A-To.


The board Q♦️ 9♥️ 5♣️ J♥️ 4♠️ give just. There was little hope on the Turn for the underdog, who busted 5th place for CHF 16,300. We're now playing 4-handed with Nabil El Hage ahead, followed by Alexandridis with more or less the same stack.


Goran Todorovic is the 4th-place finisher

Blinds 300K/600K, ante 600K



Goran Todorovic opened from the BTN with Pocket Queens, “Mexxess” from the BB went all-in with Pocket Aces and Todorovic snap-called for an effective stack of 9.750.000. 


BOARD: 9♦️ 5♠️ K♦️ 6♣️ 4♥️


Left with 1.5BB Todorovic goes all-in without looking at his cards and made a 4-up with 10-8 on  2♦️ 9♦️ 4♣️ 7♦️ 6♥️.


Two hands later, Alexandridis called from BB with K♠️ Q♥️ Todorovic’s shove with A♦️ 8♥️: the board ran 4♦️ 9♥️ A♥️ J♥️ K♥️ and Todorovic is out in 4th place for CHF 20,600.


All 3 survivors are now having a break and figuring out numbers for a possible ICM deal.
