After 4 days of poker action at the sunny Cote d’Azur, local businessman Kevin Tedesco won the heads-up battle against Jose Besalduch for €90,000 in the PMU.fr WPT National Main Event.
The 431-player field found its way down to two players, and after a 30-minute heads up battle, Kevin found KhTh in the big blind. Jose Besalduch, who was holding Ah8d, raised, and Kevin put in a three-bet. Jose moved all in, and after a short cogitation, Kevin called. The board ran out 4d2s3h3sTc! The river gave Kevin two pair and the win in PMU.fr WPT National Cannes.
Kevin Tedesco, who only plays poker as a hobby, managed to leave a big field of professional players behind him including WPT Champions Club member Guillaume Darcourt, PMU pro Romain Paon, PMU pro Erwann Pecheux , PMU pro Brian Benhamou, PMU pro Damien Lhommeau , Unibet Pro Quentin Leconte, PKR Pro Patty Baumier, WSOP bracelet winner Antonin Teisseine and many more to score his largest live cash.
Final Table Payouts:
Saturday night, Les Marches opened its doors for a night to remember at the official WPT player’s party, sponsored by PMU.fr. Free drinks, a buzzing DJ and the beautiful view over the harbor in Cannes created a heated party atmosphere and players used the night to dance, drink and socialize away from the tournament floor.
That’s a wrap from PMU.fr WPT National Cannes, but the next WPTN summer stop is Gioco Digitale WPT National San Remo 12th – 15th June with the €990 Main Event. Check out the official WPT.com event page for further information.
