PokerStars Qualifier Dmitry Holdeew Wins the Eureka3 Prague Main Event

When the final table of the Eureka3 Prague Main Event kicked off yesterday, 22-year-old Canadian online pro Ami Barer (about $5.5 million in online winnings) was the chip leader with 7.2 million and his closest competitiors were Stephen Chidwick (4.9m) and Dmitry Holdeew (4.7m). The trio dominated play from when the cards were in the air until they were the last men standing.

Englishman Stephen Chidwick was the first of the three players to hit the rail. He was eliminated by Germany's Dmitry Holdeew after losing his last 20 big blinds with KSpadeTClub against the pocket sevens of Holdeew in an all-in situation preflop. Chidwick received €92,500 for his third place finish, and the heads-up match for the title started...

It was a very even match that saw Dmitry Holdeew and Ami Barer (both PokerStars Qualifiers) exchanging the chip lead 4 times over the course of 2 hours. Eventually, Holdeew took the command and accumulated a slight lead, extended it but lost it in an all-in when his pocket fours ran into the pocket eights of Barer. However, he won the next all-in, which gave him the title and a sweet €226,400!

On the final hand, Barer check-raised all-in on the turn with KHeart4Heart on the board TDiamond3Heart7Club9Heart. Holdeew made the call and turned over TSpade9Diamond. The river card was the KDiamond and Holdeew took down the pot (and the tournament) with two pairs (tens and nines) vs the pair of kings of Barer.

yeah congratulations to him, was a nice big win, hope he can keep up the feat next year, good haul before Christmas time too. haha nice all in with the flush draw, it was a coin flip could have gone either way. He must be glad his two pair managed to hold.

Since he is mainly an onlne player what is his screen name on pokerstars? I presume he mostly plays mtt since i never heard of him on high stakes cash.
