Victor Adams Wins Main Event at 2018 Seneca Fall Poker Classic

The 2018 Seneca Fall Poker Classic played out over the weekend. Victor Adams took the title in the $1,000 Main Event. Though he began the final day of the tournament at the bottom of the stacks, Adams grinded his way through several opponents to eventually claim the top prize of $53,853.

The tournament played down to the final table before the end of Day 2. It became official with the elimination of Jeremy Hoeltke in 10th place. Peter Mancini won the hand that eliminated Hoeltke, boosting him up to the chip lead. Mancini would later be eliminated in fourth for $18,023.

Though tournament organizers had planned to end Day 2 before the final table, the players decided to finish the level which ended in two eliminations – Steven Calvaneso in ninth and Maximilian Droge in the eighth.

Adams got off to a good start on Day 3 with the elimination of Jason James in seventh. Alex Visbisky finished sixth in this tournament for the second straight year when he moved all in against Vadim Rosin.

The tournament nearly stalled out when it came down to three-handed play. Adams, Meyers, and Rozin became trapped in a three-way battled that took more than six hours. Rozin was eliminated in third, and the battle continued between Meyers and Adams for several more hours.

In the end, Meyers moved all in with ace-jack against Adams’ kings. The first place cash boosted Adams’ poker winnings past the $100,000 mark.
