Alejandro Lococo wins 2021 EPT Prague Eureka Main Event

2 years ago

It has already been a pretty big year in poker for Pokerstars Ambassador Alejandro Lococo, the much-beloved Argentinian rapper and influencer, after he made the final table of the WSOP Main Event just months ago.

This huge seventh place at the world’s most sought-after final table was good for $1.2 million big ones, and Lococo, never one to do things in half measures, is clearly intent on following up hard on his Vegas success.

Taking down this €1,100 buy-in event is no mean feat, besting as he did a field of 3,155 runners, who together built a prize pool north of €3,000,000. The four-day event has an awesome structure as well as multiple day 1s, and Lococo was rewarded with a hefty €417,820 for his win, along with the Eureka trophy!

Lococo came into this final table with a very substantial lead in chips, and only once dipped below the chip lead to eventual second place finisher, Italian Bartolomeo Tato. He was also responsible for dispatching four of the remaining seven final tablists.

Heads-up was a brief affair, with the final hand seeing Lococo limp in and call a 5bb raise from Tato (to 4 million chips) and then call a continuation bet of 4.5 million on an A♣K♣Q♦ flop. The turn brought the 7♠ and Tato made a near-instantaneous all-in bet of 25 million, an overbet to the pot which was under 20 million at this point.

Lococo did consider briefly before making the call, to see that Tato had committed it all with a mere pair of sevens, holding as he did 7♥5♠. Lococo’s A♥J♥ was more than up to the task of holding up against that hand as the river rolled off a meaningless 8♣.
