Polish poker pro Dzmitry “Dima” Urbanovich is taking the world by storm. In July 2013 Dima scored his first live cash in the Czech Republik for $525, and ever since he has won $4,828,346 in 49 different events. Needless to say: This kid is going places.
Two of the more notable names along Dima at the final table were Rhys Jones and Kully Sidhu, the latter finishing second at the €10K High Roller at EPT Barcelona last August, good for €640K. However, none of the finalist were able to stop Dima from winning his first EPT Main Event in Dublin for €561,900.
When they were down to the heads-up, German player Gilles Bernies started with a massive 4:1 chiplead on Urbanovich. Bernies must've been suicidal when he ran a huge no-equity bluff in Urbanovich to give it all away. After some more play, Bernies shoved a flush draw into Urbanovich's trip aces. He did hit the flush on the river, but that card also gave Urbanovich a full house and the title.
Urbanovich, having won four side events at EPT Malta in Season 11, adds another prestigious tournament to his incredible Hendon Mob.
