Andrew Lichtenberger Wins Alpha 8 Las Vegas for $2,104,245

The Alpha 8 poker tournament hosted in the fabulous Las Vegas has come to an end, with Andrew Lichtenberger taking down the first place in front of Tom Marchese. The tournament had a very strong field of players and the final table played almost 250 hands before it came to an end, which is quite extraordinary for a 6-max table.

The tournament was hosted at the Bellagio, with a massive media attention from local media and international media, following the players every move and reporting live. In the end there could only be one winner and Lichtenberger took home the trophy and the $2,104,245 first prize.

The final hand came when the two players got all-in pre-flop, after Lichtenberger five—bet all-in and Marchese called.

Marchese showed: 8 Hearts8 Diamonds

Lichtenberger showed: Queen Clubs9 Clubs

The dealer deals out the board Jack Clubs4 Hearts4 ClubsKing Clubs5 Diamonds and with a flush for Lichtenberger, Marchese sees his 8’s being beaten.  Congratulations to Lichtenberger with his first seven figure tournament win, hopefully the money will be used to continue the good stream in the future.
