Jason Mercier eventually eliminated Ismail Erkenov in 4th with pocket aces against ace-jack, then Soika took out Ismail Erkanov with a flopped straight.

dam, how many Erkenovs were playing that final table :o

Big Smile

at least it wasnt another german player to win it this time around, or was it... maybe Soika is german too :o

Congratulations to Ihar Soika for winning this because to defeat Jason Mercier heads up is an achievement in itself. I'm not sure what the prize money was but it must have been huge

Well Mercier has to be very glad with the 2nd place finish so much all in which if it was in pokerstars he would have busted on the first all in Smile

I don't know anything about Soika,I can't remember seeing him as winning a tournament before but he must have played well to win this and Mercier is a very good player.
I think first place was around a million dollars so that is a great achievement for your first win.

Yeah Jason was lucky on that hand like him as a player and hope he does well in other tournaments he plays , anyway on another note the EPT is getting more and more popular and more entries than last year, showing poker is on the rise and you can still make money if you evolve right and stay in touch as poker is constantly changing nowadays but still the best game in the world!

Nice prizepool and nice moneys awarded. I watched the stream in Pokerstars TV on earlier days about 45 minutes delayed and were nice fights and they not really focused on the size of the money they played for this was so professional and this was good to see. Hope a greet freeroll league fight for October as well during next EPT event.
