Dutch Poker Pro Rens Feenstra maneuvered through 207 entries over 3 days to take down the World Poker Tour (WPT) Amsterdam Main Event and walk away with $192,129 as well as the title, for his efforts.
Feenstra had a huge chip lead when the field had been whittled down to the final 6. It was not all smooth sailing, however, as Feenstra’s stack yoyo’d throughout the game. Finally, he found himself heads-up against Canadian Poker Pro Ema Zamovic with a 22 BB chip disadvantage.
The heads-up battle went on for 4 hours with the chips flowing in both directions several times. However, it was finally Rens Feenstra who came out on top to deny Ema Zamovic her second WPT title. She took home $123,188 for her efforts.
