Pateychuk Caps Heater of Lifetime, Wins WPT Prague
5 December 2011
22-year-old Russian Andrey Pateychuk has capped one of the most impressive tournament runs in recent poker history with a win at WPT Prague earlier today.
Just five months after finishing 15th in the World Series of Poker Main Event and five weeks since a win at EPT San Remo, Pateychuk came all the way back from a 15-1 chip disadvantage against Spain’s Adria Balaguer heads-up to take the title in Prague.
Pateychuk adds €468,200 to his cash total to push him upwards of $2 million for the past five months alone. With a WPT and EPT title under his belt, he's also now just a WSOP bracelet short of poker's triple crown.
Without a doubt, Pateychuk has had to hit some cards at opportune times to make it happen.
