EPT Deauville: Ognyan Dimov Wins The Main Event (€543,700)

On Saturday, Dany Parlafes from Bucharest, Romania, sat down at the final table of the EPT Deauville Main Event with 44 per cent of the chips in play. Parlafes eventually made it to heads-up against Ognyan Dimov, who brought the second largest stack to the final table.

It turned out to be a marathon battle, as it took 117 hands before a winner had been crowned. Parlafes had the chip lead in the beginning, but Dimov hit a lot of boards and held the lead about halfway through the match. Dimov remained out in front after that, but things could have been very different if Parlafes had taken down the final hand of the tournament, a hand where he held the dominating hand pre flop.

Parlafes had AClubKClub and was up against the AHeartJHeart of Dimov when the chips went in. The dealer burned a card and delivered the flop QHeart3Club6Heart. The 6Heart fell on the turn and it was game over for Dany Parlafes. His dreams of becoming Romania's first ever EPT Main Event winner had been ruined. "

I'm crushed right now," Parlafes said at the end. "I'd been grinding back and I finally get the best hand and I lose."

Ognyan Dimov, on the other hand, was celebrating the first EPT title on European soil for a Bulgarian. In addition, he started planning for the future...

"I want to be the first Bulgarian to win two EPT titles," he told PokerStars Blog.

Dany Parlafes from Romania had the lead for a long time but lost heads-up and nearly 200k Euros. On the other hand congratulation to Bulgarian winner and 4 home players made final table as well as all reached ITM.

At one point when I looked at chip stacks the Romanian guy had 10 million and everyone else only 2 million.If I was Parlafes I would be very disappointed now in not winning but just shows when you get to the final table it only takes a couple of wins to turn things around. Smile

Let these guys win their millions in this tournament. I am happy enough that I managed to win just over two dollars in the two freerolls going along with the EPT live event on Ppokerstars. I have played them all, but only won something on the last day.

So the Flop was QHeart3Club6Heart and the turn was again a 6Heart... Hmmmm xD, RIGGED!

Oh, I cannot tell you how happy this final hand makes me - seeing that at least this time, this tournament title wasn't based on some muggy K2o or anything like it, that both players pushed with some proper starting hand they've gotten - something I would do for a 1st place finish. Thank God this wasn't one of those hands...

On second thought - I can tell you his optimism isn't something he just made up on the scene, based on this picture alone he might really be the first bulgarian to do this so I guess best of luck 4 him at the tables, under the tables and in his life general. There is a happy man on that pic.
