Jordi Martinez yields his scepter

The “quasi-eternal” Champion of Spain of Poker, Jordi Martínez “Alekhine” award winner and three – time champions Spain , reached the CEP Marbella 2016 with the almost impossible task of fighting for renew his scepter.

The legend of Spanish poker in general and of the CEP in particular needed, after his absence due to incompatibility in his calendar in the past CEP Madrid won by Steve Enríquez, a great performance in Marbella to go to the Peralada stop, last of the year, with Options to revalidate his hegemony in the circuit.

Much to his regret, Jordi Martinez could not even threaten to get the heroic and fell to the eighth level of the tournament.

Enríquez is also out

Steve Enriquez, CEP Madrid 2016 winner , managed to climb to second place in the overall standings after major tournament in the capital of Spain.

The expert teacher, excellent player and great person attracted the attention of many of those present in the Casino Marbella, but unlike in Madrid, his stack did not grow exponentially in the first levels but this diminished outside the wishes of the Cantabrian player.

Enríquez has not been able to repeat the feat of Madrid in Marbella.

After dinner and an all-in, he was able to overcome the initial stack for the first time since the tournament began, but when we all expected an ascent of Enríquez to the skies came an incredible hand in which his pair of aces faced the kings Scored by David Lebrón.

In the first instance Lebron received Enrique’s cooler, but a king on the river turned the situation and Steve was eliminated in a spiced bad beat in addition to a pair of queens pre-flop another table fellow, who also Was subordinated to Lebron.

Steve Enriquez, expert poker PokerStars Spain, explained exactly this hand a couple of years ago in an article that showed the difference between cooler and bad beat , with the only difference that in your example that the hand had with the king in The river was him.
