Not an easy win there, since the player field was a big one.
And how couldnt not be, since the buy in was low for less than 3k USD.
The reward for the first place was a very good one, for the money invested.
That also due to the number of players.

Many congratulations to Uri on winning this event and his first EPT title.I was surprised to read that he was the first player from his country to win a title and this must have made him extra proud as well

Israel's people are very good at math and they can become very good poker players if they study this game carefully. Mathematics and poker do a good job and in Sochi this has been seen good enough. I have a question: Online players must sign up for Hendonmob or not because the winner of this game says something about this but for live players. For online players is it necessary or not? Confused

I like his shirt though. One thing stands out - there are quite the amount of jewish poker-pros playing in Russia for some reason and I have no idea how that guy from Uruguay got into the tourney. Probably working at the embassy.
