Lepik Wins Unibet Open, Copenhagen

Kaarel Lepik from Estonia had an epic battle in the Heads-up of the Unibet Open Copenhagen’s main event and went on to win it.


He entered the Copenhagen Circuit along with 5 other players who were looking to get a qualification to play the main event. He was the only player from the group of six to qualify for the main event and to finally make it to the top. He had a really fierce battle with Sigurd Carlsson and overcame his opponent from the Faroe Islands after trailing him for a long time in the heads-up.

Peter Harkes, the 2011 Unibet Copen Riga winner, was also at the final table and was looking to bid for his second Unibet Open title. But, he had to finally settle for the third place. The chip leader of the final day, Monica Vaka, did not have a good showing at the final table and had to settle for the seventh place. If she was able to show the poker form that she displayed to become the chip leader, she would have become the first female to ever win the Unibet Open title Continue reading “Lepik Wins Unibet Open, Copenhagen”

Ukrainian poker Yevgeniy Timoshenko

The Ukrainian poker Yevgeniy Timoshenko was not at the top of his game at the 2017 Aussie Millions Event.


He had to succumb to a defeat at the hands of Finnish poker Samuli Sipila, who does not have the kind of experience that Tymoshenko has. The Ukrainian had a huge advantage over Sipila in terms of game experience. But, this experience came to no avail as he was not able to get the better of the eventual winner at the side event. The event was the Pot Limit Omaha and this is getting popular among both poker players and fans alike. The buy-in for this event was a huge amount and it was $2,500. This was pretty high for any player.

The prize pool was AUD$283, 500 as there were 126 players who took part in the event. The event saw a lot of popular and known players taking part and the prize money were distributed among the top 15 players. Phil Laak took part in the event and finished in the 9th place and took home AUD$8, 505. Continue reading “Ukrainian poker Yevgeniy Timoshenko”
