After 16 hours of poker action, the second high stakes contest of the 2022 PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) presented by Monte-Carlo Casino® has come to a conclusion. Brazilian superstar Yuri Dzivielevski cut a heads-up deal with Daniel Dvoress as both players divided the lion’s share of the €1,776,740 prize pool. It was yet another very successful High Roller attendance as field of 74 entries emerged the first €25,000 Single-Day High Roller of the EPT stop at the Monte-Carlo Sporting complex.
The final stages of the tournament lasted until the early morning hours and once Byron Kaverman was eliminated in third place, Dzivielevski and Dvoress agreed to an ICM deal and flipped for the trophy. The fortune was on the side of Dzivielevski, like it had been many times prior to that, and he claimed the PokerStars spadie along with a top prize of €448,515. For Dvoress, the runner-up finish came with a consolation prize of €387,435 and both discussed immediately after their potential plans for Day 1 of the upcoming €100,000 Super High Roller.
En route to success, Dzivielevski staged a huge comeback as he was the shortest stack on just three big blinds during the final table. The top 11 spots were paid with notables such as Andriy Lyubovetskiy, Andras Nemeth, PokerStars ambassador Sam Grafton and Sam Greenwood all earning cash prizes. Sergi Reixach, who earned the most money in the €10,200 Mystery Bounty Event and finished second to Jean-Noel Thorel just one day ago, was eliminated on the bubble this time.
