20-Year-Old Phenom Dzmitry Urbanovich Wins EPT Dublin for €561k

23 February 2016
There are plenty of bright young poker players on the international poker circuit these days, but few have started their careers off as impressively as Poland's Dzmitry Urbanovich.

Already a multiple-time High Roller winner - and four-time champ at EPT Malta last year - the 20-year-old whiz kid expanded his dazzling poker resume over the weekend with a spectacular comeback win in the EPT Dublin main event.

Getting heads-up with amateur Gilles Bernies from Germany at a 15 million to 3 million chip disadvantage, Urbanovich calmly climbed his way back to the chip lead with aggressive play and bang-on decisions.

By the time they were even in chips the outcome was all but sealed as the heavy-breathing Bernies showed his cracks and Urbanovich took advantage.

When all was said and done the young gun finished things off with pocket kings and collected €561,900 and his first EPT main event title. He also pushed his live earnings upwards of $5 million dollars, further cementing his status as Poland's all-time leading money winner.

irish local Patrick Clarke finished fourth despite a raucous rail who came out in support. Full results and payouts from the EPT Dublin Main Event:
