Len Levy From CMA wins $2500 in the June $10K Monthly Championship

On what was a beautiful sunny summer day, 185 players came to the VFW in Walpole for a chance at winning a piece of the $10,000 prizepool.

Winning today’s event was Len Levy from the Central Mass Region. He resides in Framingham, MA. This was career win number 46. He only won 1 tournament back in June (6.1.18) at Liz Diamond to qualify for Saturday.

When the Final Table started, he was the chip leader with 725,000 and never really looked back. One by one he picked off players like ducks in a pond. With the exception of 2 people fell to Levy’s play. The hand of the day on the Final Table happened when Levy and Earl Bower (the two biggest stacks at the time) raised and re-raised preflop and by that time, there was almost 1.9 Million in the pot. Bower showed A♦ Q♥ and Levy had K♣ 10♦. The board was nothing higher than a 5 until the K♥ sealed Bower’s fate for 7th place.

When heads up play started, with 24 minutes left on the clock and the blinds at 60000/120000, Emanuel Teixeira only had 600,000 while Levy had the rest. See the photo below.


On the final hand at that level, Teixeira held A♣ 9♥ while Levy had Q♣ J♦. The board ran out as Q♠ 10♥ 8♠ 7♦ 3♦ to give Levy the hand with top pair and the victory. Mr. Levy so was happy that he had won, he forgot to give an interview after receiving his $2500.

Remember the Top 8 from tonight received a seat into the Season 29 $30K Finals coming up in the Spring of 2019.
