PCA 2014: Congratulations to Dominika Panka - The First Polish EPT Champion!

Tags: 2014 pca main event, Dominik Panka, Isaac Baron, Mike McDonald, pokerstars.
Posted on 14 January 2014 by "T".

After 16 hours of play, the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event final table concluded this morning with Dominik Panka as the champion! The Polish pro brought the 4th largest stack to the final table of eight, and he defeated Mike "Timex" McDonald, who had a fantastic chance of becoming the first player ever to win two EPT Main Event titles, heads-up to claim his first EPT title and $1.4 million in prize money!

Panka and McDonald made a three-way deal with Isaac baron. $100,000 was left to play for and (as you can see below) all players received $1m+ each and Baron took down the second biggest cash.

16 hours of play!! That is insane.

I watched yesterday like 3 hours of play and just Ortiz was busted at the time. Sad that Ortiz could not reach further.

Congrats to Panka, for what I saw he is a pretty solid player.

Well another nice payday for the top players.

I know economic times aren't great for people but it seems nuts that there's all these deals always being made at final tables, it means there isn't one true champion anymore, but a three-way winner type scenario or two-way winner. Makes it less interesting and kinda dilutes the play as well, cos no one gives that much of a shit anymore.

Its right in the article, only the headline got messed up.
Anyway, congrats to him.

Sometimes it would be interesting, if the article would contain a couple of key hands just for the sake of p.oker...

deal or no deal to me it looks funny when it's more profitable to finish in 3rd place than in 2nd. guess we're close to the epic times when dude who finishes 8th wins more than the overall winner Tongue

Great to see new names coming through and winning these things. I agree with Pochui that it is very strange that the third placed player wins more than the second placed player. Congratulations to all again
