Audrius Stakelis becomes Double EPT Online Champion
PKOs are very popular among poker tournament players and so it didn’t come as a big surprise that EPT Online 2021 Event #24 was a huge success.
425 entries smashed the $300K guarantee by almost 42% and created a large $425,000 prize pool with a juicy $48K up top.
We saw many notables in the field and with German crusher Marius “DEX888” Gierse and online regular “Legenden” two of them made it to the final table.
“Legenden” busted in 8th place and Gierse, who is on an absolute tear on PokerStars recently, followed him to the rails in 4th place.
Heads-up for the trophy were Dutch player “Ebaaa11” and Audrius “Stakelis24” Stakelis from Lithuania, who was already looking for his second EPT Online 2021 title.
And Stakelis did it again! He joined the prestigious list of Double EPT Online winners and now has a great shot at becoming player of the series.
