Freidman Dominates Experienced HPT Final Table

Florence, IN - Adam Friedman of Gahanna, Ohio returned to Belterra Casino Resort over the weekend to improve on his fourteenth-place Heartland Poker Tour finish in March.  A successful pro player, Freidman has accumulated over $1.3 million in winnings and four World Series of Poker Final Tables.  A WSOP bracelet winner, Freidman was one of many accomplished players at Monday’s HPT Final Table at Belterra.  He was the only one with well over a million in chips.

“If I take my time and pick my spots, I have a chance at winning this event,” he said before action began.

Little time was needed as Freidman took down the nine-handed Final Table in record time. The heads-up match was a quick affair as Freidman held 85% of the chips in play. The battle was over in four hands when Freidman moved all-in and was called by Jason Andrews of Pittsburgh, who in turn was all-in. Andrews cards were good for a straight but it was Freidman's flush that won the hand and the championship worth $83,439. The runner-up collected $51,453.

Freidman started to take control when play was three-handed.  He put his opponents to the test with multiple all-in raises. Steve Russell of Coolville, Ohio called one of those all-in shoves putting his tournament life at risk. His ace-king was unable to improve against Freidman's pocket nines eliminating him in third place for $34,766.
