Last season’s European Poker Tour Player of the Year, Poland’s Dzmitry Urbanovich, won the 2016 PokerStars EPT Season 12 Dublin Main Event at the Royal Dublin Society Saturday night.
Urbanovich, who cleaned up in the high roller events in Season 11, won his first EPT main event title and the €561,900 first-place prize that came along with it, ultimately finishing atop a field of 605 players in Ireland’s capital.
Gilles Bernies, the man Urbanovich defeated in heads-up play, is a part-time poker player, student, and DJ from Germany. He went through the event breathing heavily and taking his time throughout all the hands he played. The 27-year-old Bernies took a massive lead into heads-up play, but could not deny the young Polish phenom the title. — Latest Poker News at http://www.pokernews.com —
