The 2023 Unibet Open Bucharest €1,100 Main Event came to an end on Sunday, December 3, at the JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel.

Nine players out of 360 entrants were back on Day 3 for the final table. And after a bit more than seven hours of "stressful play" on a "tough table", Dwayne Sluis has been crowned as the champion. The Dutch player defeated Ivan Alin Constantin in heads up play to win the Unibet Open trophy and €65,830.

Even though "he wanted to win to prepare for his next events in Las Vegas in the best possible way", Robert Burlacu finished in third place (€31,400), ahead of Dragos Anton (4th, €25,420) and the chip leader at the beginning of the final table Eduard Norel (5th, €20,030).

Winner's Reaction

"I can't really describe my feelings," Dwayne Sluis said moments after his victory. "It's special because poker wasn't going that well for me during the last two years. So, to win the tournament, it's absolutely amazing."

Sluis, who is a PLO professional player for the past ten years, came to Bucharest because he won a package online to play the Main Event. And he didn't come alone, as he had his family with him. "For me, it was a trip with my wife and my daughter. The deal was: 'If I make money playing poker, it's good. But if I don't, we'll see Bucharest and have a good time here.' And I ended up playing, and playing, and playing, and winning the tournament."

The Unibet Open Bucharest started well for him as he ended Day 1b with three starting stacks. "I had a few spots where I was bluffing all in on the river. They didn't call, so I got lucky there, I guess," he explained. Then his next goal was to reach the money. But even though his stack didn't grow much at the beginning of Day 2, he managed to do so. "Once in the money, things started going, and I built a very nice stack for the final table, above average (1,425,000)."

On the final table, everything ended like in a fairytale. However, the first level was more like a nightmare. "I lost almost everything at the beginning with kings against queens with a queen of hearts on the river," he remembered. "Then I lost another all-in against a short stack with jacks against kings. After that, I was like 'whatever, it's probably done.' But I managed to build up again and to win the tournament against (Constantin), who won with queens against my kings. So it makes it a little bit more special!"

With his victory, Sluis won €65,830. A "good boost" for his next big project. "With my family we are going to travel the world and go to America in march to play poker in Texas, Miami, Las Vegas, also during events in Europe. We are probably going to do that during a year. We are pretty much selling everything, including our house", he explained. A big trip around the world where he'll try to be as successful as in Bucharest.

Final Table Action

The beginning of the final table was quite slow, even though Ivan Alin Constantin, Bjorn Samuelsson, and Bart Van Dijk all doubled up one after the other in the first levels. However, it took one and a half hours to see the first elimination, with Sorin Flutur running into Dwayne Sluis' kings, finishing in 9th place for €6,770.

Things didn't go much faster after the first break of the day, until Samuelsson found himself in a tough spot. Facing an all-in from Constantin, Samuelsson couldn't fold his two pairs, so he called but lost the hand to Constantin's better two pairs with queens. With a smaller stack, Samuelsson was eliminated in 8th place for €8,260. Moments later, he was joined at the cashier by Max Broens, who couldn't find an ace on the board with ace-three against Burlacu's jacks. Finishing 7th, Broens went back home with €11,230.

After these three eliminations, Van Dijk was left with the shortest stack of the six remaining players. Even though he doubled up once, he was eliminated shortly after a new break (6th, €15,300). However, the former chip leader Eduard Norel didn't go much further, as he was sent to the rail 10 minutes later (5th Place, €20,030). Norel called on the river with the second pair, but Sluis hit two pairs on the river, becoming the new chip leader.

After Robert Burlacu doubled through him, Sluis continued increasing his lead, hitting a runner-runner flush to eliminate Dragos Anton in fourth place for €25,420. A few minutes later, Burlacu also lost his last chips, his ace-queen getting cracked by ace-eight (3rd, €31,400).

He let Sluis and Constantin fight for the title, with the Dutch player slightly in the lead. Both stacks quickly became even. However, soon after, Sluis with the best pair was called on the river to have four times Constantin's stack after this hand. A first all-in and call situation even occurred, but Constantin doubled up.

All the chips went into the middle again a few hands later. And this time, Sluis hit a pair with king-queen against ace-king to win this hand and the 2023 Unibet Open Bucharest.

A Big Pot for Sluis

Livello 27 : Blinds 40,000/80,000, 80,000 ante

In a three-bet pot, both players checked on the flop 68Q. But on the turn 3, Dwayne Sluis, who three-bet preflop, bet 600,000 from the big blind.

Ivan Alin Constantin made the call. But he found himself in a tough spot after Sluis bet 1,000,000 on the river 5.

Constantin went deep into the tank for almost three minutes, and eventually called with AJ for a simple ace-high. But Sluis had 1010 for a pair, so he won this pot and is now the large chipleader.
