The Reigning Champion Is Gone


Tobias Sinding, the winner of the last IPC in Malta, just got knocked out.

He told me that he lost a lot of his chips when he accidently put in a wrong coloured chip, when only meant to call, so he had to turn his hand into a bluff.

He only had 8 Big Blinds left, when the following hand happened:

UTG raise to 900, UTG+1 all in for 9700, Tobias tanks a bit and then moves all in, as well and UTG, who had both covered called.

UTG: 10 10

UTG+1: Jack Spades 9 Spades

Tobias: King Diamonds 9 Diamonds

The board didn't bring any help to the two all in players and they were both knocked out.

Since Tobias probably won't return tomorrow, we will see a new champion being crowned on Monday.
