Early indicators at independent online poker room MANSION (http://www.mansion.com) confirm that 2007 will deliver even greater rewards and more exceptional value to players, with MANSION member dipthrong emerging as the winner and over $28,000 richer in the $250,000 Added Value Tournament Series final this morning from a field of more than 200 runners.
The $30,000 Added Value final attracted a solid field of 242 entrants in the $300+$20 buy-in tournament with $30,000 cash added directly to the prize pool, compliments of MANSION. The No Limit Texas Hold'em event finished up this morning at 07:34GMT after 4 hours and 32 minutes in play with a total prize pool of $102,600 up for grabs.
When it came down to heads up, a total of 27 hands were hard fought before dipthrong finally triumphed over newfoundglry.
By the time the last hand was played, dipthrong had a 276,000 to 86,000 chip lead. The Blinds were at 4,000/8,000
Newfoundglry raised to 24,000 with K5 off suit. Dipthrong re-raised All In with AK off suit.
Newfoundglry called. An Ace came on the flop and it was all over for Newfoundglry who had to be content with second place and the runner-up payday of $17,955, while Dipthrong's pair of aces saw him walk away with the impressive first prize of $28,215.
