Andrey Novak Wins partypoker Eurasian Poker Tour Prague €5,300 High Roller Eight-Max

Ukraine’s Andrey Novak was the last man standing in the €5,300 No-Limit Hold’em EAPT High Roller 8-Max that concluded the partypoker EAPT Prague festival last night. Following a two-way deal with his heads-up opponent – Ludovic Geilich from Germany – Novak was crowned the victor and received €117,365 and the trophy for his efforts.

As for Geilich, he left the tournament with €110,385, which he added to his poker bankroll of over $1.7 million. Here it is interesting to note that the German poker pro made another runner-up finish in a live tournament in Prague mere days ago. The player finished second in the PokerStars Championship Prague €1,100 National Championship event for a prize of €184,000. Geilich finished runner-up to Greece’s Georgios Vrakas.

As for the Ukrainian winner of last night’s Eurasian Poker Tour high roller, it should be noted that his triumph became his best live poker accomplishment so far. Including last night’s cash, the player now has a total of $223,491 in live tournament earnings. Novak previously cashed in events that took place in his homeland as well as in Cyprus and Las Vegas. He actually took part in this year’s WSOP and cashed in three events over the course of the series.

Here it is also important to note that Novak has been playing online poker for quite some time. A quick look at his PocketFives profile tells us that he has cashed more than $3.4 million online. Back in October, playing under the screen name Anjeyyy, he finished second in the World Championship of Online Poker Event #53: $2,100 NL Hold’em [Super Tuesday SE] with a guaranteed prize pool of $1.5 million. The player won $309,744.85 for his performance in the online tournament.

Novak’s Participation in the partypoker EAPT Prague

The €5,300 High Roller was the single event Novak managed to cash in during the partypoker EAPT Prague festival. However, the player apparently performed brilliantly and eventually scooped the largest portion of the prize pool.

The €5,300 buy-in tournament attracted a total of 109 entries, who generated €517,750 in prize money to outpass the €500,000 guarantee. The top 13 finishers received a share of the money, with Danish poker pro Morten Mortensen being the first to leave with a payout. Min-cashes from the two-day tournament were worth €10,000.

Other notables who cashed from the event included US poker pro David Peters, who also topped the field of the PokerStars Championship Prague €2,150 No-Limit Hold’em Turbo mere days ago. The player finished tenth in the partypoker EAPT High Roller, good for €12,500. Finland’s Juha Helppi, Spain’s Sergio Aido, and Poland’s Dzmitry Urbanovich were also among the well-recognized players who left the €5,300 buy-in High Roller with a cash. They finished ninth, eighth, and sixth, respectively for prizes of €15,000, €20,000, and €32,500.

The €5,300 High Roller was the final tournament on the schedule of the partypoker EAPT Prague festival. However, it is important to note that the Czech Republic’s capital is still an arena for quality poker action as the PokerStars Championship Prague is underway.
