The second edition of Poker Night in America’s King of the Hill knockout tournament completed over the weekend with US poker pro Oliver Busquet taking home $200,000 after besting Parker “TonkaaaaP” Talbot after just two rounds of a scheduled best-of-three contest.
The finals took place at Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with Talbot and Busquet facing each other after winning their first-round games against Shaun Deeb and defending King of the Hill 1 champ Phil Hellmuth.
The finals duo started with stakes of $100,000 each in a heads up, best-of-three format competition. Busquet found the third leg unnecessary after sweeping Talbot away in the first two rounds.
The Poker Night in America Twitch channel streamed the finale.
Busquet will have little time to rest on his laurels – King of the Hill 3 is scheduled for October 26-26 at the Sugarhouse Casino in Philadelphia, where he will defend the title against three formidable players: Scott Blumstein, Dan Coleman and Brandon Adams.
