Early in two blinds, Alex Preda recovers and wins the most graceful Midnight Poker final with three ladies among competitors
Special guest artist Sorana Darclee, Maria Cuceanu from Slatina and Viorica Dobre from Constanța took three of the seven places from the third televised Midnight Poker final, in the game with the most consistent female presence so far. But our desire to see a champion bowed to the class with which the professional Alex Preda from Râmnicu Vâlcea managed to restore his reduced stack to two blinds early in the tournament and win the competition for the $ 3,000 and the title of the episode.
Former member of the A.S.I.A. and now a businesswoman and student of Arts, Sorana Darclee would have wanted to play and keep playing but unfortunately poker does not forgive anything and the artist left the game quite early, when the blinds did not allow him to wait unpunished. After the game, she came, as usual, to the comment booth and discussed the moon and the stars in an exciting interview that can be watched on our Youtube page – where you can find all the episodes and important gameplay phases of all Road to Vegas and Midnight Poker editions.
The new champion, Preda, could have left the tournament very early when, after a lost flip, he was left in only two blinds, far below the stack of any opponent. But he benefited from two advantageous setups, tripled, doubled and further it was a formality to resist, he having the richest portfolio of results, from a distance, exactly in the format of the tournament: hyper-short SNGs turbo online, the perfect workout for such a showdown.
Viorica Dobre also had an interesting story at the table. Beginner, she played a week after her husband, Dragoș Dobre, participated in the second edition … An excellent figure was Maria Cuceanu and Viorel Manea, amateur players who played their cards almost impeccably and only the way in which the books fell sent them to the edge.
Congratulations to Alexandru Preda, Road to Vegas finalist in August and now Midnight Poker champion!
