From April 13 –21, the Holland Casino Amsterdam played host to the World Poker Tour with several events on the schedule, including the much-anticipated Main Event. The tour stop kicked off with a DeepStacks event and was followed by the Main Event, which began on April 16. A total of 207 players posted the €3,300 buy-in to compete in the tournament, creating a total prize pool of €590,170. In the end, it was Rens Feenstra who earned the first-place finish, defeating Ema Zajmovic in heads-up play.
When the final day of the Main Event began, Feenstra would have the chip lead, but Zajmovic came ready to compete. After just three hands, Zajmovic would double up thanks to Feenstra and manage to gain a little ground. The two would continue to trade the chip lead as players began to be eliminated.
By the time heads-up play rolled around, Zajmovi would have the chip lead, holding 3.9m to the 2.3m of Feenstra. The chip lead would change hands basically pot after pot and the blinds would continue to increase. On the final hand of the poker tournament, Feenstra would have the lead and go all-in with K-9 off-suit. Zajmovic would call with K-4 off-suit and the board would fall 2-K-8-J-6. The board was no help to Zajmovic, who would have to settle for the second-place finish.
With the win, Feenstra earned the title and a nice cash prize, along with a Tournament of Champions ticket worth $15,000.
