Winnie Forte jammed, then Benjamin Dain moved in for less.  Winnie’s pocket Jacks were ahead, but flipping against his suited AK.  The board bricked out and Winnie took the pot.  She’s up to more than 1 million.

Benjamin Dain finished in 10th place, earning $241.

Championship: 1st Place – Mirbek ‘Iron Mike’ Orozaliev ($23,709)

Bar Poker Open East Coast NLH Championship
(Invitation Only)
$100,000 Guarantee

Level 36:  Blinds 400,000/800,000/50,000 ante
Entries:  637

Iron Mike Orozaliev (Bishok, NY)New York Free Poker

Mirbek Orozaliev (New York, NY)
New York Free Poker

Mirbek Orozaliev is our 2016 East Coast Bar Poker Open Championship winner, earning $23,709!  This will be the first tournament cash reported for this 28-year old from New York Free Poker, but undoubtedly won’t be the last.

Mike arrived at the final table as the shortest stack, but was undeterred, “never gave up” and kept grinding away.  As his stack grew, so did his confidence.

His family back home in Kyrgyzstan will have to wait until morning to watch his victory on the live stream, but his New York Free Poker family was watching live, both here and online, as he took down the title.  I guess this means he’s buying the first round of drinks at the next Bar Poker event!
