Marcel Luske Wins Sunday Warm-Up

Dutch Pro Takes Worst Of Deal But Goes On To Win Big Online Event


Dutch poker pro and Team PokerStars member Marcel Luske has won the Sunday Warm-Up though he initially walked away with the worst of a four-handed deal.

Luske, who is primarily known as a live poker player, beat 3,667 opponents in the $215 buy-in game including Mickey “mement_mori” Petersen who finished sixth.

The final four players agreed to a deal which saw them each receive:

blueskyyM: $82,149.17

Aussie_star1: $75,103.70

geirto: $71,419.02

Marcel Luske: $65,039.68

There was $10,000 left to play for.

Luske then hit running tens with A-10 vs. A-J against blueskyyM who was knocked out a few hands later but walked away with the biggest payday.

Heads up against Aussie_star1 lasted just three hands. Hand no. 2 produced a rivered full house over full house situation in favor of Luske and hand no. 3 saw his suited 10-9 hit two pair by the turn vs. K-2 which didn’t connect and it was more than enough for Luske to win the additional $10,000 in play.
