The partypoker Grand Prix joined forces with the Bratislava Poker Festival sponsored by the Irish Poker Tour for six action-packed days of poker tournaments and cash games at one of Europe’s largest casinos at Card Casino Bratislava from July 18-23.
Arkadiusz Liszewski lifted the coveted trophy on Thursday after defeating Romania’s Paul Covaciu heads-up to win the €400 Mystery Bounty for €13,200. That’s not all as he also eliminated six players to collect €4,300 in bounties to bring his total haul to €17,500.
Meanwhile, Covaciu not only scooped the €8,250 runner-up prize, but also scooped one of the top two €5,000 mystery prizes, making it a day to remember for him too despite dropping one player short of the trophy.
Nikolaos Zacharakis also had something to celebrate, winning the other mystery top prize of €5,000 and finishing the event on the podium with a third place finish for €5,500.
The event itself was a huge success with 272 entrants creating a €95,472 prize pool that exceeded the €50,000 guaranteed with tons of excitement each time a mystery envelope was drawn.
Meanwhile, the partypoker Grand Prix €550 Main Event is on track to meet its high guarantee of €500,000 with 488 entries during the first three opening flights.
