It wasn’t too bad at all for Dmytro “Too Bad” Bystrovzorov at the tables today as he claimed victory in Event #65: $600 NLHE Deepstack for his first WSOP bracelet, the WSOP Europe Package, and $227,906 after almost 15 hours of play. He defeated Florian “Gaug1nho” Gaugusch, part of the Pokercode Grindhouse group that’s being trained by Fedor Holz and Matthias Eibinger, heads-up in a 2,911-strong field which had created a prize pool of $1,659,270. Bystrovzorov hasn’t got much of a live resumé to boast and also made his first cash this series, making it count right away. In comparison, Gaugusch had already collected three cashes during this series.
Bystrovzorov started the heads-up battle with 60% of the chips in play and increased it by even more with two big hands going his way. In the final hand, he first limped in and then three-bet shoved with ace-seven and was called by Gaugusch for his last twelve big blinds while holding pocket queens. The eight-eight-ace flop gave Bystrovzorov the higher two pair and nothing changed on the turn nor river to deliver him the triumph over the Austrian player and the eighth bracelet for Ukraine.
