[caption width="450"] Dzmitry Urbanovich continues to find new ways to dominate the European Poker Tour[/caption] Last season Dzmitry Urbanovich burst onto the European Poker Tour scene and at 19 years old made easy work of the EPT Player of the Year race even though he never won an EPT Main Event. On Saturday in Dublin the now 20-year-old Polish poker pro found himself on top of the EPT Dublin Main Event field after a grueling heads-up duel with Germany’s Gilles Bernies to win €5,125,000 ($5,705,157 US). "It feels very good, very good," Urbanovich said. "It's been a long week." Urbanovich kicked things off on the third hand of the day. Urbanovich opened to 110,000 from early position and Rhys 'floppinhel' Jones moved all in from the big blind. Urbanovich called and tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="tc"] and had Jones’ [poker card="as"][poker card="9h"] dominated. The board ran out [poker card="ts"][poker card="5h"][poker card="2d"][poker card="9d"][poker card="ad"] to give Urbanovich top two pair and eliminate Jones in sixth. It took nearly two hours for the next elimination. Ilios Kamatakis raised to 150,000 from UTG and Bernies called from the cut-off. Kamatakis bet 275,000 before Bernies raised to 650,000. Kamatakis moved all in and Bernies called. Kamatakis showed [poker card="ks"][poker card="9s"] for second pair but Bernies held [poker card="as"][poker card="qd"] for top pair. The [poker card="3h"] turn and [poker card="3d"] river provided no relief for Kamatakis and was out in fifth. The remaining four players played without another elimination for three hours and Bernies used that time to build his chip lead before some fireworks began. Bernies raised to 225,000 and Patrick Clarke announced he was all in. Bernies quickly called and turned over [poker card="qh"][poker card="qs"] while Clarke showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="2d"]. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="9c"][poker card="5h"] flop gave Bernies top set and left Clarke hoping for runner-runner. The [poker card="7c"] turn was one half of that equation but the [poker card="2s"] river was a brick and Clarke was out in fourth and Bernies held over 72% of the chips in play. He increased that total on the very next hand. Bernies moved all in from the button and Kully Sidhu called from the big blind. Bernies was ahead with [poker card="5c"][poker card="5h"] against Sidhu’s [poker card="ah"][poker card="6h"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="7s"][poker card="4h"] flop was no help for Sidhu and neither were the [poker card="2c"] turn or [poker card="2s"] river and he was eliminated in third place. When heads-up play began, Bernies held 14,840,000 of the 18,125,000 chips in play. But over four hours of heads up action, Urbanovich battled back to even, took the chip lead, briefly lost it again and then overcame Bernies again before finall finishing him off. The 61st and final hand of play between Bernies and Urbanovich started with Bernies shipping all in for just about 2,000,000 and found himself in dire straits when Urbanovich snap-called and tabled [poker card="kd"][poker card="ks"]. Bernies, with [poker card="qd"][poker card="7h"] needed a lot of help. The [poker card="7s"][poker card="5s"][poker card="4c"] flop gave him a pair but didn’t change much. The [poker card="5s"] turn and [poker card="9d"] river were complete bricks and Urbanovich eliminated Bernies in second place and captured his first EPT Main Event title. The event - the first for the EPT in Dublin since Season IV - drew 605 players paying the €5,300 buy-in. The EPT is now on a brief hiatus until the EPT Grand Final in Monaco April 25 to May 6. Final Table Payouts Dzmitry Urbanovich - €561,900 Gilles Bernies - €349,800 Kully Sidhu - €250,300 Patrick Clarke - €193,650 Ilios Kamatakis - €52,600 Rhys Jones - €119,450
  2. [caption width="640"] Mustapha Kanit won the EPT Dublin €25,000 High Roller (Photo courtesy PokerStars/Neil Stoddart)[/caption] In the nine years since the European Poker Tour was last in Dublin, Ireland the Tour has changed quite a bit. One of the biggest changes is the addition of High Roller events to the stop in each EPT city. Sunday night in Dublin, Mustapha Kanit put on a show for the ages in winning the €25K High Roller for €501,640 ($563,172 US). Kanit, who is Italy's all-time leading money earner, now has over $6 million US in lifetime earnings. The €25,000 buy-in event, which attracted 70 entries, was the biggest buy-in event in the history of Irish poker. Kanit came to the final table with the chip lead and while he did briefly relinquish that lead to Chance Kornuth in heads-up play, the Italian poker pro basically went wire-to-wire for the win. Kornuth picked up the first elimination on just the second hand of play Sunday. From UTG Kornuth moved all in for 1,290,000 and a shortstacked Ivan Luca called from the button. Kornuth showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"] while Luca had [poker card="jh"][poker card="5s"]. The [poker card="ts"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2d"][poker card="4s"][poker card="th"] run out didn’t help Luca and he was out in eighth. On the very next hand Nick Petrangelo found himself on the way out of the tournament. Action folded to Petrangelo in the small blind and he moved all in for 480,000. Jeff Rossiter called from the big blind and tabled [poker card="qh"][poker card="8s"], behind Petrangelo’s [poker card="ad"][poker card="jh"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="qs"][poker card="7d"] flop gave Rossiter second pair but left Petrangelo drawing to a bigger pair or broadway. the [poker card="6d"] turn and [poker card="6h"] river were bricks though and Petrangelo was out in seventh. While the first two eliminations took no time at all, it was 90 minutes of play before another player left the final table. Again it was a blind-vs-blind confrontation that lead to the bustout. Anton Bertilsson moved all in from the small blind and Keith Johnson called from the big. Bertilsson turned over [poker card="6s"][poker card="6d"] and Johnson, who was short when the hand began, needed help with [poker card="as"][poker card="5h"]. The board ran out [poker card="7c"][poker card="5c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="qs"][poker card="jh"] leaving Bertilsson in front and sending Johnson out in sixth place. An hour later Kanit picked up his first elimination of the day. Kanit raised to 215,000 and Rossiter moved all in behind him. Kanit called and found himself in a dominating position with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"] to the [poker card="ks"][poker card="jh"] of Rossiter. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2h"] flop kept Kanit in the lead but the [poker card="7h"] gave Rossiter back door flush outs. The river however was the [poker card="as"] and Rossiter was eliminated in fifth. Kanit held 54% of the chips in play with just four players remaining and pushed that advantage to as high as 70%. It took another blind-vs-blind confrontation to get down to three players. Kornuth shoved from the small blind and Bertilsson called off the rest of his stack from the big blind. Kornuth tabled [poker card="ad"][poker card="6d"] and Bertilsson showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="td"]. Bertilsson found no traction on the [poker card="6c"][poker card="5s"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2s"][poker card="8d"] board and was out in fourth. A three-way all in so no player bust out and left Kanit in the lead. Just a few minutes later Charlie Carrel found himself on the way out and Kanit was set for a heads-up battle with Kornuth. Again, it was blind-vs-blind. Kanit limped from the small blind, Carrel move all in from the big and Kanit quickly called. Carrel showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="4h"] while Kanit was ahead with [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"]. The board ran out [poker card="9s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="5s"][poker card="7c"][poker card="4s"] to eliminate Carrel. Heads-up play last a little over two hours with Kornuth taking the lead for a little less than 20 minutes of play. Once Kanit had it back, he didn’t relinquish it. On the final hand of the night Kornuth opened to 500,000 and Kanit responded by moving all in. Kornuth took some time but eventually called with [poker card="ac"][poker card="th"]. Kanit was ahead with [poker card="3h"][poker card="3s"]. The board ran out [poker card="8c"][poker card="7d"][poker card="2s"][poker card="qs"][poker card="jd"] giving Kanit his first win of 2016. Final Table Payouts Mustapha Kanit - €501,640 Chance Kornuth - €360,150 Charlie Carrel - €234,100 Anton Bertilsson - €176,640 Jeff Rossiter - €137,200 Keith Johnson - €106,330 Nick Petrangelo - €84,040 Ivan Luca - €65,170
