After 11-and-a-half-hours of play on the EPT Deauville Main Event final table, Vadzim Kursevich from Belarus was the last man standing after defeating Paul Guichard , from France, heads-up.
Guichard had a narrow lead to Kursevich when the final table began. However, when the heads-up began between the two, Kursevich had a massive 23 million to 3 million lead, and it didn't take many hands before it was over. For the win Kursevich received an amazing €875,000 while Guichard got €557,000.
Now you might wonder what happened to Luca Pagano? Well, he sat down at the final table quite short stacked and, unfortunately, it didn't take long before he found himself in trouble and finished 7th place for €110,000. This was his 7th EPT final table and 20th cash, but still not a single win. Well, it's probably just a matter of time before he will get his first EPT title. He really deserves it!
