The PokerStars Latin American Poker Tour Playa Conchal event took place this past weekend and a field of 259 players was competing. In the end it was Canadian coffee merchant Amer Sulaiman who earned the first place win.
Heads up play lasted until the early morning hours on Monday between Sulaiman and Sol Bergren. The final table saw five Canadians competing alongside one Dutch player, a Costa Rican player and one Guatemalan. Bergren entered final table play as the chip leader and held on to make it to heads up play.
Bergren held 1.3 million chips when final table play began and after busting three players his lead would grow even further. Sulaiman busted two players and managed to grow his stack as well. Once heads up play began Bergren held 2.8 million and Sulaiman held 2.2 million.
When heads up play began Sulaiman played quite well and overtook Bergren for the lead rather quickly. It would take several hours before the final hand would occur. Sulaiman went all in with top pair and top kicker while Bergren would call with top pair and a combo flush and straight draw. Bergren missed on the remaining cards and Sulaiman would earn the title win.
