Professional poker player Andrew Frankenberger has impressed the online poker gaming community with his poker achievements. He has to his credit a World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet and a World Poker Tour (WPT) championship, and is one of the most successful WPT players. Recently, Frankenberger won yet another victory in the Party Poker Premier League.
Currenlty, this US poker player is at his best, with his latest victories being in a mixed-game version of the Party Poker Premier League. Frankenberger’s strategies landed him on the final table with six other players. The game that was played at the final table was No Limit Texas Hold’em, one of Frankenberger’s strongest games. Within no time, he had defeated his hapless opponents James Dempsey, Sorel Mizzi, Matt Giannetti, and Max Pescatori. With these players off the table, Frankenberger was left playing against Andrew Feldman.
The poker battle between the two was a treat to watch, with each of them becoming the chip leader in turns until the game was finally decided in favor of Andrew Frankenberger. Frankenberger won a cool sum of $100k, which makes his total winnings so far $2 million. The player who finished second Feldman got $65k for playing a good game.
The final table results are as follows: The player who finished first Andrew Frankenberger collected a cool sum of $100,000, the player who finished second Andrew Feldman won $65,000, the player who finished third Sorel Mizzi won $45,000, the player who finished fourth Max Pescatori won $35,000, the player who finished fifth James Dempsey won $30,000, and the player who finished sixth Matt Giannetti won $25,000.
PartyPoker.com organized its live poker event titled Premier League Poker Mixed Game Championship from Nov 13 to Nov 17 at the Play Club at Mayfair in London. This was an invitation-only event with a huge buy-in of $25,000, featuring popular poker variants such as Pot Limit Omaha, No Limit Hold’em, and Pot Limit Hold’em.
The 12 participants were divided into 2 teams of 6 players each, called heats. The top 3 players from each heat then played the final table. Each player who reached the final table received $25,000 prize money for their efforts and an invitation to the next year’s Premier League.
Based on an interesting concept, this mixed poker event attracted a lot of attention worldwide with a number of top poker players participating and Frankenberger emerging as the champion.
