  1. An action-packed final table saw Swedish player ‘WhatIfGod’ win the PokerStars 2021 EPT Online Main Event for a top prize of $363,641 as a back-to-back victory was sealed with a superb heads-up victory over the former PSPC champion and overnight chip leader Ramon Colillas. Coming into play third in chips behind both Colillas and German crusher Christian Rudolph, 'WhatIfGod' roared through the field to win the same title he claimed back in 2020 for a remarkable back-to-back victory. The final table action began with a big elimination right off the bat as one of the biggest names of the final table, who began the day with over 50 big blinds, found himself headed to the rail first. Current worldwide #1-ranked Pedro Garagnani has carved out a name for himself in a number of elite high roller events in 2021 and a summer victory in a WCOOP High Roller event saw the Brazilian bank $195,690. However, there wasn't another title to be had today as he crashed out first in the EPT Online Main Event when his five-bet shove with [poker card="Th"][poker card="Td"] was called by Christian Rudolph with [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Kc"]. The board of [poker card="As"][poker card="3d"][poker card="9h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="4c"] sent Garagnani out for $41,259 and in doing so, handed Rudolph a dream early pot, chipping him up to 29 million and giving him an early lead. Another big name fell when Orpen Kisacikoglu busted in eighth place for $53,763. Daniel Dvoress moved all-in from middle position with [poker card="Jd"][poker card="Td"] and Kisacikoglu called off his stack with [poker card="Ac"][poker card="8c"] in the small blind. He was ahead in the hand, but the flop of [poker card="Ts"][poker card="9d"][poker card="4h"] changed all that, giving the Canadian top pair. Kisacikoglu, a Turkish professional who typically plays from London, needed help. He didn’t get it on the [poker card="9h"] turn and when the [poker card="7c"] river fell, so did he. The early eliminations were coming thick and fast and PokerStars ambassador Benjamin Rolle was next to crash out, this time in seventh place for a result worth $70,645. Rolle three-bet all-in for around 21 big blinds pre-flop with [poker card="4c"][poker card="4h"] and he was called by the newest chip leader at the final table, ‘WhatIfGod’. The Swede held [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Qd"] and although the [poker card="Jd"][poker card="9s"][poker card="4d"] gave Rolle bottom set, it also gave 'WhatIfGod' a flush draw. That turned out not to be needed as the [poker card="Ks"] turn and [poker card="Tc"] river gave the Swede a Broadway straight to win the hand and eliminate the dangerous German player. With six players remaining, 'WhatIfGod' led with 34.8 million chips from overnight chip leader Ramon Colillas (26 million) and Rudolph (13.6 million). There were two Brazilians at the final table, but one had to go, and it was Bruno Volkmann who was busted in sixth place for $92,828. Volkmann was another victim of the chip leader as 'WhatIfGod' called the Brazilian’s shove pre-flop. Volkmann had [poker card="8s"][poker card="8d"] and needed to hold against [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Jd"] but couldn’t do so across the board of [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Js"][poker card="4h"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="7d"] as kings and jacks did for Volkmann’s chances of going any further. Eduardo Silva was the only Brazilian left, but he was out in fifth place just a couple of hands after players returned from a scheduled break. Silva defended his big blind with [poker card="Qc"][poker card="7c"] against the opening bet from Colillas with [poker card="Th"][poker card="Ts"] and on the flop of [poker card="Qd"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="3h"], Silva called a c-bet from the Spaniard. The turn of [poker card="6h"] saw Silva raise all-in when Colillas bet and the former PSPC champion, who won $5.1 million from a freeroll ticket back in 2019 called it off with ease. The meaningless river of [poker card="5s"] ended the hand in Colillas’ favor and he put himself right back into contention at the expense of Silva, who won the first six-figure cash of the event, taking home $121,977. Just five minutes later, Dvoress was on the rail, too. Opening from early position with a min-bet, Dvoress had [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9d"] and Rudolph called with [poker card="Jd"][poker card="Th"]. The flop of [poker card="As"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="9s"] flop gave Dvoress two-pair, and his min-bet was called quickly to a turn of [poker card="Qc"]. This time, Rudolph check-called a bigger bet of 1.3 million chips, having made a straight. The trap was set, and on the [poker card="4d"] river, Dvoress bet 2.8 million, almost all of his stack, calling off the final few chips when Rudolph raised and seeing the bad news as his flopped two pair was trumped by the German’s turned straight. That hand brought Rudolph back into contention on 20 million chips, but the German was still behind Colillas with 24 million and 'WhatIfGod' on 53 million. As he battled to shoot for parity, he put himself in increasing danger with the escalating blinds seeming to chase him every few orbits. Rudolph dropped to 16 million and when he limped in the small blind with [poker card="As"][poker card="7s"] and 'WhatIfGod' raised from the big with [poker card="Th"][poker card="Tc"], the former got it all-in and after a quick call, was at risk for his tournament life with five cards to come. The board of [poker card="Kd"][poker card="Qd"][poker card="6c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="2c"] did nothing to help Rudolph and he missed out, busting in third place for $210,608. Heads-up, Colillas was fighting a chip deficit of around 60 million to his 40 million but drifted down to a third of his stack as he held just 14 million chips. A vital double up saved his tournament life when he made a flush on the river with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="5s"] managing to four-flush and beat 'WhatIfGod’s [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Kd"] when all the money went in pre-flop. Just a few hands later, Colillas was even more fortunate, all-in and behind on the turn with bottom two-pair against his opponent’s top and bottom pair, but a two-outer seven on the river again save his tournament life, giving him a priceless double when all had seemed lost. Colillas took the lead and even had the chance to close out the victory, calling an all-in holding [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Qc"], but 'WhatIfGod' prevailed with [poker card="5d"][poker card="5c"] as he held to double-up to almost parity. The Swedish player pushed hard for the win and ground his opponent down over several hands that didn’t go to showdown. Colillas was down 3:1 when the final hand took place, as he went all the way to the river with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="8h"]. The flop of [poker card="8d"][poker card="7h"][poker card="6c"] put Colillas into the lead against WhatIfGod’s [poker card="Qd"][poker card="4d"], but the [poker card="Kd"] on the turn gave the Swede a flush draw and on the [poker card="7d"] river, that flush came in. Colillas bet out 5.2 million, then when 'WhatIfGod' shoved, made the call and saw his top pair and top kicker on the flop beaten by his opponent’s rivered flush. After a final table where the chips went with him, were taken away from him by a two-outer and the chance of a double title nearly went with it, 'WhatIfGod' battled hard and won back-to-back EPT Online Main Event titles in a thrilling climax to a great series. 2021 EPT Online Main Event Final Table Results: ‘WhatIfGod’ - $363,641 Ramon Colillas - $276,741 Christian Rudolph - $210,608 Daniel Dvoress - $160,279 Eduardo Silva - $121,977 Bruno Volkmann - $92,828 Benjamin Rolle - $70,645 Orpen Kisacikoglu - $53,763 Pedro Garagnani - $41,259
  2. PokerStars has announced that the recently postponed European Poker Tour Prague live stop has been rescheduled to March 5-16 at the Hilton Hotel Prague. EPT Prague, which was originally scheduled to be held from December 8-19, was postponed in late November citing the new restrictions by the government of the Czech Republic imposed in an effort to address a surge in the coronavirus. The restrictions limited the number of people for any given cultural or sporting event to 1,000 and placed a 10 p.m. curfew on all restaurants and bars. PokerStars quickly pivoted and within two weeks of announcing that EPT Prague was postponed, has now given players a new date to look forward for the return of the EPT. “I am pleased that we have been able to adapt so quickly to the ever-changing situation and provide our players with new dates for EPT Prague already,” said Severin Rasset, Managing Director and Commercial Officer of Poker at PokerStars. ”A big thanks to our partners at Kings Casino and Hilton Prague for working with us to ensure that we found an alternative solution for the event.” In the meantime, PokerStars will shift the focus of their players to their upcoming EPT Online series which will run from December 8 -19 with $17 million in total guaranteed prize money. EPT Online will feature 68 different events with buy-ins starting at just $5.50 and will give players the shot of winning an actual EPT trophy, with 20 of them up for grabs. Highlights of the schedule include the $5,200 buy-in EPT Online Main Event with $1.5 million guaranteed, $55 buy-in Mini Main Event with $1 million guaranteed, and a $10,300 buy-in Sunday Super High Roller with another $1 million guaranteed. Satellites for most major events will be readily available in the PokerStars client as is the entire 68 event schedule of EPT Online. The EPT branding isn’t the only tie-in between EPT Prague and the upcoming EPT Online series. It’s not only the players who will be missing out on EPT Prague this December, but also the support staff who planned on the work, and, quite possibly, was counting on the money from working to help get them through the holidays and the rest of the year. To that end, PokerStars is allocating $100,000 from the rake collected from EPT Online to be paid out to the Live Event Staff that has been affected by the live event’s postponement. “We know that there’s a huge demand from the PokerStars community to see our live events return in full and we are excitedly working towards that, but we must be flexible along the way to ensure our players stay safe and healthy, and the experience is an unforgettable one for all the right reasons,” Rasset said. “We understand the impact of not running these events has on our players and staff, and we hope that the upcoming EPT Online series will provide players with an enjoyable alternative this December.”
