Poker Maximus IV – Day 4 Recap
Sunday’s are always big days during any Poker Maximus series at Carbon Poker and the first Sunday of PM IV was no different. There was $230K in guaranteed money up for grabs as we crowned four new winners in these events.
Event #11: $100,000 Guaranteed NLH – ($100+9 buy-in)
Nearly 1000 players put up the $100+9 entry fee for the first $100K guaranteed tournament of PM IV. The top 90 finishers would earn some cash but in the end it came down to Y0J1R0 and Nasirovsky battling for the crown and the 1st place prize of $19K.
With the blinds at 80k/160k, Nasirovsky was on the short stack and needed all the chips he could get. He was dealt 4d,7d and attempted a blind steal by shoving all-in. Y0J1R0 was holding Ah,4h and sensing an opportunity to end this thing now he called with the all-in bet with his Ace-high. The flop was fantastic for Y0J1R0 as it came Ad,Kh,4c giving him two pair and a near unbeatable hand. Nasirovsky wasn’t dead yet though as the 3d fell on the turn, giving him a chance at making a flush. But the river was the 2c and that put an end to Nasirovsky’s tournament. Congrats to Y0J1RO on winning the event and taking home the $19K 1st place prize.

Event #12: $100,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold’em – ($500+30 buy-in)
Big buy-in events are always steep for the majority of players but 208 entrants to Event #12 either put up the 5 bills or qualified via PM IV’s satellites. In the end it was bearmule1233 and 1MVDJJ left fighting for the title and as in Event #11, the final hand in this one was another pre-flop all-in race.
1MVDJJ was on the short stack and decided to shove all-in with Qd,3h. Bearmule1233 was holding Kh,7h and was more than willing to try and put away 1MVDJJ right here.. A flop of 9s,7s,Ts gave bearmule1233 a pair of 7’s and when the turn and river were no help to 1MVDJJ (Tc,Jh) bearmule1233 walked away with the win in the hand and the title for Event #12.
1 bearmule1233 $25376.00; 2 1MVDJJ $16848.00; 3 Petey23allin $10400.00; 4 mrblonde2020 $7800.00; 5 NewberryKA $6448.00; 6 runlikemike1 $5200.00; 7 BigBalla2 $4160.00; 8 brilliantcorners $3328.00; 9 TheGfactor33 $2600.00
Event #13: $10,000 Guaranteed HORSE– ($30+3 buy-in)
393 players tried out PM IV’s firs HORSE tournament and that meant that they had to finish in the top 36 to earn some cash. IT was ABBABBA and MPEATMisDOWN who not only did that but outlasted everyone else and battled for the crown. Here’s how the final hand went down:
It was limit hold’em when the eventual final hand was played and MPEATMisDOWN was on the shortest of short stacks. He was holding the Td,Qs and had no problem making a run with this hand. ABBABBA was holding Qd,7d and after a flop of 3d,4s,8d he was holding a flush draw and knew the end was near. After the two traded raises back and forth post-flop, MPEATMisDOWN ended up all-in when the Ks fell on the turn, keeping his Queen-high,10-kicker in the lead. But a third diamond (Jd) fell on the river, making ABBABBA’s flush and giving the Event #13 championship to him.
1 ABBABBA $2711.70; 2 MPEATMisDOWN $1851.03; 3 SHIPDALOOT12 $1179.00; 4 AllinMoeRon $884.25; 5 Rebeca90 $719.19; 6 CheckStats $589.50; 7 AgentCooper72 $459.81; 8 gwsanche1 $341.91; 9 chincheckyou $259.38
Event #14: $20,000 Guaranteed NLH – 1 rebuy/1 add-on – ($10+1 buy-in)
After 1120 players had registered and gone through the rebuy/add-on period the prize pool for Event #14 was over 27K. With 1st place paying out over $5k it was tbare123 and moemoney11 who were the final two standing for a chance at that big pay day.
As we had in Events #11 and #12, Event #14 saw an all-in pre-flop race on the final hand as moemoney11 shoved with his Kc,6h and was called by tbare123’s Ad,3s. A flop of 4c,3h,6c gave both players a pair but it was moemoney11 who jumped into the lead with his pair of 6’s. However, the turn card was another 3 (3c) giving tbare123 the lead back as he only had to dodge one more card before he was crowned the champion. The river was no help to moemoney11 (5d) and tbare123 walked away the winner and $5k richer.
1 tbare123 $5026.46; 2 moemoney11 $3420.71; 3 FrankKGB $2241.53; 4 TooCold12 $1698.13; 5 SlickmoneyC $1290.58; 6 AlexBalex $1018.88; 7 BewareoftheBeard $815.11; 8 JCarcedo $652.09; 9 Penithbref $516.24
