Kelly Robinson Wins Big!

QueenSix player Kelly Robinson had a fantastic day on Sunday, winning the joint QueenSix-PokerMania Championship Event, and taking home $1700 after a split that gave the top three players $1400 each with an additional $300 for the winner. Fellow QueenSix player Adarsha Rudrappa took second place.

The event was held at Concourse Bar at Wynyard station, and it was a great turn-out with 50 players battling for a share in the $5000 prize pool. With the top 5 places paying, and 30 minute blinds, this was always going to be a battle of stamina, mental agility, and of course a little luck.

Although QueenSix started with a few less qualifiers than PokerMania, and had the first two bust-outs very early in the game, a couple of hours into the game there were an equal number of QueenSix and PokerMania players remaining. This 50-50 ratio remained consistent for most of the day, which was great with both groups well represented. With two tables remaining, Robinson was faced with a decision that would prove to be make-or-break for her. Looking at AK hole cards, and facing two all-in bets, Robinson elected to fold her hand pre-flop. Had she have called, her chip stack would have been decimated.

The final table boasted a great mix of players.
QueenSix: Greg Christo, Kelly Robinson, Adarsha Rudrappa.
PokerMania: Richard Bowran, Julie Smith (QLD), Simon Richards, Karen Hussey, Tom Owens.

With the long blinds structure, this was by no means a luck-shoot, and there was some quality play to come. Smith was the first to be eliminated, and a short while later Christo was the next to go, risking 60K of chips on an attempted blind-steal from the button with pocket 2s. Richards became the chip leader. With Bowran and Hussey short stacks, the blinds came around a few times and with the bubble looming, Hussey somehow survived a number of all-ins, before Bowran took the bubble. Hussey was eliminated in 5th place taking $200 for her efforts, while Owens finished in 4th with $300.

The stage was set for a thrilling final three. Rudruppa had played a solid final table, and Richards was the chip leader, but Robinson was not going down without a fight. In a hand that was bet to the river, Robinson doubled up from Richards when her hand improved to a full house on the river to beat the straight that Richards had hit on the flop.

With almost equal chip stacks, a deal was made. $1400 for each of the three remaining players, and an extra $300 for the winner.

What had started with a thrilling final three, turned into a gruelling over an hour battle, before Robinson again rivered Richards to set the stage for a 1-2 QueenSix faceoff between Robinson and Rudrappa.

It was a calculated game, but Rudrappa could not compete with Robinson's stack, and finally he finished second after Robinson's A8 held up against two picture cards.

Congratulations to Kelly Robinson and Adarsha Rudrappa!

We would like to thank Concourse Bar for their support and for hosting a great day. Concourse Bar holds poker each Tuesday.
