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.
