Championship: Bjerno Quiets the Prince

$2,500 Coco Poker Open Championship
Level 25: 15,000/30,000/5,000 Ante

Everyone knows when “Prince” Gaspard is at the table, he takes up most of the conversation. He was talking to Nathan Bjerno all the way to the river in a big hand that could change the outcome of the final table.

Bjerno opened action to 70,000 and Gaspard three-bet to 190,000. The raise was called to see the ac5d2d flop and Gaspard fired another 260,000. Bjerno thought it over and called again. Gaspard kept shooting with 350,000 after the 2c river and Bjerno called to get a comment from Gaspard.

“I give up,” he half-laughed. “Check in the dark.”

Bjerno checked behind after the 9c river and his ahjd out kicked Gaspard’s as6s. It was a 1.7 million chip pot without either getting all-in.

Gaspard: 950,000
Bjerno: 2,400,000
