It turned out to be a profitbale decision, as he ended up winning the whole thing for a €47,520 payday, which doubled his total live tournament earnings! Burstein told that he has played professionally for about 2 years and that he usually goes to Vienna (Austria) once a month to play live games - except during the summer months when he's grinding away in Las Vegas.

He is having such a small pot of live earnings for somebody who is supposed to go grindin' to Las Vegas every summer... But I guess every semi-pro has to start somewhere so good for him.

Congratulations to Vladimir Burstein on winning the partypoker Grand Prix main event that took place in Austria. Changing his mind at the last minute turned out well. Topping a field of 5,230 players from all over the world is absolutely remarkable.

Many congratulations to Vladimir Burstein on winning this event and nearly fifty thousand in prize money. To beat a field of over 5,000 is quite some achievement and well done again to him

You realize he does not live out of poker and when he has time try to win something beautiful in las vegas or in austria. If he is a good poker player it remains to be seen if he will play with strong opponents in future. Many good players should follow their example and go more often in las vegas. Luck can come anytime. Smile

Wise decision indeed. For only 115 euro, he ended up with almost 50k in winnings.
That is what you call a return of an investment .
With a final table deal and the second player winning more than the winner
of the tournament. ? Smile

biggest congratulations go to the biggest names in professional poker world who happened to finish in top 7: E.A and D.A. it is no secret that when both of these dudes compete in any tourney opponents basically know that its hopeless to fight for the tittle, only in rare occasions E.A and D.A. finish only in the money without winning the actual tourney itself

It is a buy in that you can say it is affordable indeed from many players,
for such a live even.
It is not only the prize, but also the action and experience you can get.
Plus it is more fun playing live than online.
You need to be able and work your poker face though Smile
