France’s Mathieu Di Meglio has won the €3,000 EPT Mystery Bounty at PokerStars European Poker Tour Prague for €243,186 after defeating heads-up opponent Vlada Stojanovic of Croatia after what proved to be a back-and-forth heads-up battle.
Di Meglio is primarily an online player and had $44,046 in Hendon Mob-reported live earnings heading into the event.
After his victory he told PokerNews “I’m very happy. After many years of failing and almost getting there, I’m very satisfied!”
The Mystery Bounty event attracted a sizable field of 776 runners for a prize pool of €1,331,616 that didn’t include a bounty prize pool that featured two €100,000 bounties. There weren’t many bounty sweats at Friday’s final table as most of the biggest envelopes had already been claimed. On Day 2, Orpen Kisacikoglu and Poland’s Pawel Krol pulled the two €100,000 mystery bounties, while Toni Kaukua was lucky enough to pull a €50,000 envelope.
