  1. Somewhere tonight in Berlin, Greek restaurateur Makarios Avramidis (pictured) is likely celebrating the accomplishment of a lifelong goal. Don't be surprised however if there aren't too many locals celebrating with him. Avramidis beat a final table that included three Germans to win the €2,200 Six Max No Limit Hold'em event at WSOP Europe and with it the first ever World Series of Poker bracelet awarded in Germany. Avramidis beat German Frederic Schwarzer heads-up to claim the €105,000 ($119,266 US) first place prize money and that coveted bracelet. His previous best score was for just over $60,000 for an eighth place finish at the Master Classics of Poker in 2011. Schwarzer earned €64,930 for finishing second. The other German players who fell just short of becoming the envy of their countrymen were Paul Michaelis and Marvin Rettenmaier. Michaelis actually sent two players to the rail on his way to being the overwhelming chip leader at one point. First, he busted Rettenmaier in sixth and then PocketFiver Stephen stevie444 Chidwick in fourth place. Sandwiched between those two bustouts was the only American player at the final table. Californian Rick Alvarado, who started the day second in chips, was eliminated by Chidwick in fifth place. Alvarado now has seven WSOP cashes this year, including three final tables. Chidwick, who started the final table with the chip lead, was unable to maintain the momentum he had at the end of Day 2 and scored his eighth 2015 WSOP cash, earning €32,600 in the process. Following Chidwick's bustout, Michaelis found himself with 58% of the chips three-handed. It went downhill from there. The key hand came just a few minutes into Level 24 (10,000/20,000 - 3,000 ante). From the button, Avramidis raised to 50,000, Schwarzer folded the small blind before Michaelis moved all-in from the big blind. Avramidis called with his tournament life on the line and tabled Jh-Js before Michaelis showed Tc-Td. The board ran out Qs-Jd-9d-Ah-4d to double up into the chip lead. Michaelis was eliminated just five minutes later when he again found himself all-in pre-flop with a smaller pocket pair than his opponent. Schwarzer held pocket jacks to Michaelis' pocket tens. Michaelis got no help from the dealer and was out in third place. Heads-up play lasted a little over an hour with the two players swapping the chip lead back and forth a few times before Avramidis finished off Schwarzer to win his first career bracelet. There is one event underway at Spielbank Casino in Berlin, the €550 Oktoberfest No Limit Hold'em, with another eight on the schedule. A new event starts each day this week until the €10,450 Main Event next Sunday. Final Table Payouts Makarios Avramidis - €105,000 Frederic Schwarzer - €64,930 Paul Michaelis - €45,860 Stephen Chidwick - €32,600 Rick Alvarado - €23,310 Marvin Rettenmaier - €16,740

  3. The last European Poker Tour event of 2018 wrapped up Tuesday in Prague with Germany's Paul Michaelis beating a final table that included a few well-known PocketFivers on his way to picking up €840,000 ($954,677) and a trip to the Bahamas to play in the $25,000 PokerStars Players Championship in January. The eight-handed final table began on Monday before stopping with six players left to return on Tuesday. It took just a few hands at the final table on Monday for the first elimination to happen. Diego Zeiter moved all in for 1,305,000 from middle position and Alexandr Merzhvinskii called. Zeiter tabled [poker card="9c"][poker card="9s"] but got the worst news possible when Merzhvinskii turned over [poker card="ah"][poker card="as"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="tc"][poker card="2h"][poker card="qh"][poker card="td"] runout wasn't good enough to save Zeiter from an eighth place finish. It took only an hour before the next player was sent to the rail. From middle position, Laurynas Levinskas raised to 250,000 before Liviu Ignat moved all in from the button. Levinskas called and showed [poker card="kc"][poker card="kh"] while Ignat needed help after turning over [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"]. The [poker card="jh"][poker card="tc"][poker card="6d"] flop gave Ignat two extra outs but neither the [poker card="7c"] turn and [poker card="8s"] river were any help and he was sent out in seventh. The six remaining players bagged up their chips and returned on Tuesday to play down to a winner. A good night's rest didn't help Parker Talbot overcome his short stack though. Down to just 15 big blinds, Talbot moved all in from the cutoff only to have Levinskas call from the big blind and turn over [poker card="as"][poker card="9c"] while Talbot was left drawing with [poker card="ks"][poker card="qh"] The [poker card="ah"][poker card="ad"][poker card="2c"] flop all but ended Talbot's run. The [poker card="ts"] turn gave him four outs to Broadway but the [poker card="kd"] river was no help and Talbot was out in sixth. Play continued for nearly 90 minutes before the next elimination occurred. Michaelis raised to 400,000 from UTG and Carlos Branco moved all in for 3,575,000 from the button. Artem Kobylynskyi re-raised all in from the big blind forcing Michaelis to fold. Branco showed [poker card="7d"][poker card="7h"] but Kobylynskyi had [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"]. The flop came [poker card="5h"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3h"] to give Branco six more outs. The turn was the [poker card="9s"] and the [poker card="8h"] river sealed his fate with a fifth place finish. The first talk of a chop came up with four players remaining but Levinskas decided he wanted to keep playing. About 30 minutes later, the decision was made for him. Michaelis raised to 425,000 from the button and Levinskas defended from the big blind. The [poker card="kd"][poker card="qh"][poker card="7d"] flop got both players to check. The [poker card="8h"] turn got another check from Levinskas before Michaelis bet 400,000. Levinskas responded by moving all in and Michaelis called instantly. Levinskas showed [poker card="ks"][poker card="9s"] for top pair but Michaelis tabled [poker card="8c"][8s for a turned set. The [poker card="9d"] river was a useless second pair for Levinskas and he was eliminated in fourth. Three-handed play last a little over an hour before the three players agreed to a deal. Michaelis took €770,000, Merzhvinskii pocketed €631,500 while the shortest stack, Kobylinskiy, settled for €571,910 and they left €70,000 and the $30,000 Platinum Pass to play for. It took almost 90 minutes to go from a deal to heads-up. Merzhvinskii moved all in for his last 12 big blinds from the button and Michaelis called from the big blind. Merzhvinskii tabled [poker card="as"][poker card="7d"] but found his hand dominated by Michaelis' [poker card="ad"][poker card="9d"]. The [poker card="qh"][poker card="9c"][poker card="7h"] flop improved both players. The [poker card="8d"] turn and [poker card="th"] river changed kept everything the same and gave Michaelis the pot and eliminated Merzhvinskii in third. When heads up play began, Michaelis was ahead 2-1 over Kobylynskyi. It took just 15 minutes for Michaelis to finish things off thanks to a cooler. Michaelis called from the button and then called again after Kobylynskyi moved all in for 5,600,000. Kobylynskyi showed [poker card="td"][poker card="ts"] but Michaelis had him beat with [poker card="js"][poker card="jd"]. The board ran out [poker card="kc"][poker card="qd"][poker card="5s"][poker card="9s"][poker card="7d"] to give Michaelis the win and leave Kobylynskyi as runner-up. Final Table Payouts Paul Michaelis - $954,677 Artem Kobylynskyi - $649,987 Alexandr Merzhvinskii - $717,712 Laurynas Levinskas - $359,140 Carlos Branco - $275,674 Parker Talbot - $203,846 Liviu Ignat - $155,385 Diego Zeiter - $110,720
