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