Soon-To-Be Dad Davidi Kitai Wins €25K SHR Title in Barcelona

The partypoker MILLIONS Grand Final poker festival in Barcelona is crowning new champions every day at a rapid pace.

After Andreas Eiler’s win in the first €25,500 buy-in event, Belgium’s all time money list leader Davidi Kitaiemerged victorious in the second €25,500 buy-in Super High Roller event. The second €25K SHR event attracted a total of 90 entries and Kitai earned €700,000 for his win.

Kitai started his heads-up play against Spain’s Juan Pardo Dominguez with a 7-1 chip deficit, but doubled up a few times to take over the chip lead and eventually managed to win the title after his pocket sixes held against Dominquez’s Q-J suited.

The win takes Kitai’s total live tournament earnings to over $9 million. However, the three-time WSOP bracelet winner had more reasons than just the money to be happy. As it turns out, after getting married last summer, Kitai and his wife are now also expecting a baby:

“Every time I was all in, I kept thinking about the baby and rubbed the belly,” Kitai said after his big win.
