Dzmitry Urbanovich Wins EPT Malta High Roller (€572,300)

Tags: Connor Drinan, Dzmitry Urbanovich, EPT Malta.
Posted on 21 March 2015 by "T".

At around 14:30 on Friday, after four intensive days of poker, Connor Drinan and Dzmitry Urbanovich were the last men standing from a field of 88 entries of the European Poker Tour Malta €25,000 High Roller.

Drinan, who brought the biggest stack to the final table, had a decent lead when the final battle for the title started, however, it was Urbanovich who stood tall as the champion around 3 hours later. 

Urbanovich, who most knew nothing about before winning this title, had support throughout the heads-up from the rail by fellow countryman Dominik Panka, who has both PCA and EPT High Roller titles to his name.

"He is well known in the Polish poker community," Panka said of Urbanovich. "He has won a SCOOP tournament, in the mixed games." then added, "He is very aggressive."

"This was my first EPT High Roller, maybe I was preparing myself for bigger tournaments, and this was the moment," Urbanovich said. "I was pretty lucky, got some good spots, made some bad beats for guys. Played good in certain spots and a solid game."

He added: "It wasn't easy heads-up, it lasted for three hours or something. It took me about 1.5 hours to get the lead and then I found some good spots...I can't say for sure I am more aggressive than my opponents. Sometimes, I think at the right times I am. I guess I play the same and adjust to opponents."

After this news, he had two more big hits in other two tournaments, and some of other places in final tables on side events, and from here i read i his only 19 year old, and get 3 big hits and some other places in one and first EPT in malta, is maybe a dream after very nice results online.
Lets see what he will do in the future of live tournaments.
But for this time congratulations for it.
