On a short-lived final day of just two and a half hours, a winner has been crowned in EPT Online 06: $10,300 NLHE [8-Max, High Roller] and it was Mikita 'fish2013' Badziakouski who became the latest champion of the 2020 PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) Online after he cut a deal with Matthias 'iambest2' Eibinger in heads-up. The event featured a field of 109 entries and the top 13 finishers earned a portion of the $1,090,000 prize pool with Badziakouski and Eibinger taking home near identical amounts.

For most of the final table, it was all about Eibinger, who never surrendered the lead until the heads-up deal was cut. Both then agreed to get their chips in preflop no matter what and Badziakouski's prediction of 'ok next hand flip book and then keep going till i bust you' turned out to be true.

Badziakouski won the first flip to double, lost the second flip to remain with the lead, and won the third flip to secure the $10,000 on top, taking home $222,453 for the efforts. Eibinger can console himself with $221,564 and has plenty of chances to earn a PokerStars spadie trophy until the end of the festival on November 18th, 2020.

Mikita Badziakouski Wins EPT Online $10k High Roller For $222,453

Christian 'WATnlos' Rudolph started the final day second in chips and ultimately fell in third place, one spot ahead of 'hello_totti'. EPT Online 07: $2,100 NLHE [8-Max] championDaniel 'SmilleThHero' Smiljkovic flirted with the lead for a while but fell in fifth, and the remaining finalists all belong to the who-is-who of the online poker scene including Mike 'SirWatts' Watson, Bert 'girafganger7' Stevens, Timothy 'Tim0thee' Adams, and Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford.

The Action of the Final Day

Mikita Badziakouski - Image Results

Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford, who is currently ranked number one on Pocket Fives, was the shortest stack heading into the final table with just 12 big blinds and was not able to spin them up. Mike 'SirWatts' Watson then seemed to be destined as the next casualty when he lost a clash with fellow Canadian Timothy 'Tim0thee' Adams to be left with fewer than one and a half big blinds. However, in the very next hand Adams lost a flip with king-queen suited against the jacks of Daniel 'SmilleThHero' Smiljkovic and was out in 8th place.

Watson doubled four times and made another pay jump as online MTT crusher Bert 'girafganger7' Stevens ran with kings into the aces of Matthias 'iambest2' Eibinger. But kings would also be the culprit for the elimination of Watson in 6th place when Eibinger flopped trips and rivered a full house with queen-eight.

Smiljkovic ran a king-high bluff against Eibinger that didn't go through and that hand certainly cemented the grip of Eibinger with five remaining. In the meanwhile, Mikita 'fish2013' Badziakouski won a race and was suddenly the second-biggest stack. Smiljkovic departed next and in the blink of an eye, 'hello_totti' lost a race to Eibinger and was gone, too.

Half an hour later, Christian 'WATnlos' Rudolph ran out of steam when his ace-jack was dominated by the ace-queen of Eibinger but the Austrian was denied the outright victory when he lost two of the three blind flips to Badziakouski. That wraps up the live updates for this event but the PokerNews team will provide all the action of each 2020 PokerStars EPT Online Event for the remainder of the festival.

The final table of EPT Online 06: $10,300 NLHE [8-Max, High Roller] was broadcasted with cards-up coverage and commentary on the PokerStars YouTube and Twitch channel and another five days of live stream action remain with James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton as the hosts.
