Read Egor’s Review here:
“A couple of weeks ago, I was in Sochi to play the stop of the EAPT. All in all it was a great event and everything worked out pretty well, especially in the side event, where I made the final table and finished in 9th place. The atmosphere at the tables was very friendly and there was a lot of table talk. Everybody seemed to have fun and enjoyed the tournament. My special thanks go to the guys from VIP-Grinders who made all of that possible.”
