Gor Ghazaryan became the Sochi Poker Cup champion
Today, the Sochi poker festival called SPF Spring is coming to an end. One of the most interesting events turned out to be the Sochi Poker Cup with a buy-in of 28,000 rubles, in which there were 5 starting flights. More than 600 entries were made, and Gor Ghazaryan became the Sochi Poker Cup champion, earning almost 2.5 million rubles.
You could play in each of the flights, but you were allowed to go further with the largest stack. Igor Talonpoika successfully passed twice on the second day of the tournament, receiving 43,750 rubles for the first stack. The player did not manage to go far, and he received the second minimum payout.
601 players took part in the Sochi Poker Cup at SPF Spring. The attendance record was set two years ago, when Vladimir Varentsov beat 798 rivals. For the victory, the Russian received 1.8 million. This amount is due to the fact that at that time the buy-in was 17,000 rubles.

The first to leave the final was Svyatoslav Andrienko, who put the last 5 bb with Q-J and lost to Alexey Sokovoy’s pocket queens. In the next decisive hand, two short stacks collided. Kirill Sukhomlinov with K-J played against A-7 Shukhrat Fayziev. The jack on the flop was enough for Sukhomlinov to win.
