Ukrainian Khoroshenin Takes Down EPT Vienna

Oleksii Khoroshenin denied Anthony Ghamrawi’s chance to win EPT Vienna on home soil in a marathon final table on Saturday.

Khoroshenin entered heads-up play with a commanding 20-6 chip lead against Ghamrawi and didn’t waste his opportunity.

After 45-minutes of battle Khoroshenin finally landed the knockout blow when he turned a king-high flush.

Thanks to a three-way deal Khoroshenin walked away with €578,392 for first-place while Ghamrawi earned €446,481.

The biggest winner, at least financially, was actually third-place finisher Marko Neumann who picked up €638,127 and definitely got the best of the deal.

Bulgarian Pro Simeon Naydenov Places Sixth

The day didn’t go quite as well for Bulgarian pro Simeon Naydenov.

Naydenov, who won a WSOP bracelet last summer, lost a crucial coin flip with ace-jack against Ghamrawi’s pocket sevens.

The Bulgarian earned €151,000 for his efforts but no doubt had his eyes on the bigger prize.

The European Poker Tour now heads to San Remo on April 14-20 with the EPT Grand Finally in Monaco taking place shortly thereafter.

Here are the complete final-table payouts (*represents three-way deal):


  • 1 - Oleksii Khoroshenin, Ukraine, €578,392*
  • 2 - Anthony Ghamrawi, Austria, €446,481*
  • 3 - Marko Neumann, Germany, €638,127*
  • 4 - Pablo Gordillo, Spain, €262,150
  • 5 - Timo Pfuzenreuter, Germany, €203,900
  • 6 - Simeon Naydenov, Bulgaria, €151,000
  • 7 - Frei Dilling, Germany, €108,100
  • 8 - Rumen Nanev, Bulgaria, €77,000
