After the shortest televised final, Gabriel Cioacă goes through a professional lineup and wins the first edition of Midnight Poker! Amateur 50-year-old Gabriel Cioaca, a regular on the national PokerFest circuit, said from the start that he had no complexes in front of the pros in front of him in the first televised final of the Midnight Poker show - and the ensuing match confirmed that . After the shortest final, he won the first title in the series and the $ 3,000, becoming the first Midnight Poker champion. Gabriel went under the radar most of the game and started his ascent with a dubbing in front of Cosmin Rusu who seemed unstoppable. Remaining heads-up against the champion of the 7th edition of Road to Vegas, Alex Dobre, Gabriel consolidated his advantage and the last hand of the match was a formality. The game brought together no less than 4 former Road to Vegas finalists - a sign that those who took advantage of this promotion can no longer miss the qualifying satellite from Friday on 888poker. The first elimination was the most probable: the special guest, the Romanian actress of Libyan origin Madja Abouloumosha leaving the tournament prematurely after the shooting of sticks received from the professionals of the final. Cascading eliminations followed: the quadruple finalist Ștefan Dobre, the amateur Răzvan Morar, the triple finalists Cătălin Paparușcă and Cosmin Rusu and at the end the professional Alex Dobre who gave up the last run inspired by Gabriel Cioacă. Thus ended the first episode of the new series of the most popular Romanian televised poker show! Anyone can be featured in the following finalist teams - anyone with an 888poker account, as tonight - as every Friday - the next qualifying satellite is played on 888poker, the $ 1,000 Midnight Poker online tournament with prizes at a buy-in only $ 5 which will propel the last six remaining in the game to the final on B1 TV where there are seven cash prizes worth $ 7,700. We are waiting for you to qualify! Congratulations to Gabriel Coacă, the first champion of the series!
