Orpen “Orp the Turk” Kisacikoglu has bagged event 7 at the Triton Poker SHR Vietnam stop, pocketing $1,753,000 after defeating Stephen Chidwick heads-up in the $75k buy-in tournament....

The Turkish highstakes crusher was one of 85 entries, (57 unique players) to the 2-day event and it featured the biggest money-bubble so far – $159,500 for 11th spot and “gg ul” for everyone else. That included ACR boss Phil Nagy...

The painful bubble spot went to Canada’s Daniel Dvoress, the day one chip leader...

Dvoress: Q♥ 10♦
Soyza: K♠ 5♥

Board: 8♦ 2♣ K♣ K♥ 2♦

♠ ♣ ♦ ♥

That left the $6,375,000 prizepool to be shared out, and Rob Yong took his first chunk of Triton Vietnam gold, $239,000 for 8th spot, departing alongside Punnat Punsri in a double KO courtesy of Santhosh Suvarna and his pocket rockets.

Triton Poker ambassador Jason Koon grabbed his first share of the Vietnam pot, a $389,000 for 6th spot after a double-whammy courtesy of Kisacikoglu, then Chidwick disposed of both Hecklen and Shuvarna.

Three-handed, it was a battle of the nosebleed MTT crushers, O’Dwyer, Chidwick and Kisacikoglu and the Englishman took care of O’Dwyer in 3rd spot...

Chidwick: 8♠ 7♠
O’Dwyer: Q♥ Q♦

Board: 3♥ 6♦ 9♥ 3♣ 5♠

♠ ♣ ♦ ♥

Heads-up between the two friends didn’t see any talk of a deal, both men assured of 7-figure cashes, with the title going the way of the Turkish pro when his turned “freeroll” came home...
