Congratulations to Daniel Smith
Daniel Smith has bested a mammoth field of 457 players, including an incredibly tough final table featuring two previous Unibet Open finalists and a French legend of the game, to pick up what is by far his biggest ever poker score – €88,000 and the shiny Unibet Open trophy.
Daniel Smith raised to 320,000 from the button with and Michael Nielsen looked down on . Nielsen tanked for quite a bit before he eventually made it 945,000 to go. Smith tanked for a bit and four-bet to 2.2 million.
Nielsen looked back down at his cards and moved all in for 4.8 million and Smith snap-called!
The board ran out and Smith was crowned Unibet Open Cannes champion! Nielsen, from Denmark, was in full control of the final table for quite a while, but eventually the trophy and the big cheque went to the United Kingdom!
